Professional services firm STV has tapped three executives to lead its transportation market in the Pacific Northwest, to serve as an infrastructure program advisor and manager, and to oversee the geotechnical and tunnel practice on the West Coast, respectively.
The firm that plans, designs and manages infrastructure projects across North America appointed Bryan Williams as Vice President and Pacific Northwest Area Manager within the Transportation West Group. In this role, he will manage all local staff, oversee project delivery, advance business development activities, and nurture client relationships in the region.
Williams is a professional engineer and project manager with more than 20 years of experience in transportation infrastructure planning, design and construction. According to STV, he has led multimillion-dollar continuous improvement programs, from the initial planning stages to successful project delivery, with specialty expertise in design-build and alternative delivery. Prior to joining STV, Williams worked for a global engineering and consulting firm, where he served as a Senior Project and Design Manager, overseeing the delivery of infrastructure projects in the Puget Sound region.
“Bryan’s extraordinary talent for both team leadership and project management will be a game-changer in advancing crucial infrastructure projects throughout the Pacific Northwest,” said Liz Justison, President of the Transportation West Group at STV. “He will add value to our clients, stakeholders and delivery partners, while embodying STV’s commitment to making communities better through innovative infrastructure solutions across the region.”
Additionally, Rob Troup has joined STV as a Senior Vice President and Senior Program Manager, serving as an advisor and program manager for several complex infrastructure programs. A rail and transit veteran with more than 40 years of industry experience, he was most recently Program Executive for the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Construction & Development and President of Grand Central Madison Operating Company (formerly East Side Access) connecting MTA Long Island Rail Road service to the east side of Manhattan. He was also the owner’s representative as the Deputy General Manager for Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s (WMATA) Silver Line Expansion Phase I and the executive responsible for the completion and overall management of WMATA’s capital program, including the design and delivery of the 7000-series railcars. As Amtrak’s System’s Manager, Troup supported the realignment of track, signals and traction power systems at Secaucus Station in New Jersey.
“STV is proud to welcome a professional of Rob’s caliber to help our clients advance their most complex capital programs,” STV Executive Vice President Marcos Díaz González said. “With a career spanning major public and private sector roles, Rob’s experience and management skills will help deliver one of the most critical infrastructure projects in the nation, adding value to our clients and the communities we serve.”
Matteo Montesi is STV’s new West Coast Vice President and Engineering Director in its Tunneling and Geotechnical Practice. He served previously at WSP USA, supporting highways and bridges, buildings and naval facilities, rail transit, airports, and energy projects on the West and East coasts. In Southern California, Montesi contributed to key regional projects such as the Mid-Coast Transit Corridor Project in San Diego, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Purple Line Extension, and the I-105 Express Lanes project in Los Angeles, according to STV. Outside of California, he has supported the New York MTA’s Second Avenue Subway and the LaGuardia Airport Central Terminal Building Redevelopment in New York City; the Port of Alaska Modernization Program Cargo Terminal 1 Replacement; and the Texas High Speed Rail Project.
“Matteo is a pivotal addition to our expanding team, with extensive experience leading geotechnical design projects for major bridge and highway expansions, transit redevelopments, and green energy projects nationwide,” said Frank Pepe, Senior Vice President and National Director of Tunneling and Geotechnical Group at STV. “Matteo’s specific expertise in deep foundations, seismic and earthquake engineering and earth retaining structures will enhance STV’s geotechnical services both in the West and across the country.”
