Kenneth Feldman has been hired to lead WSP USA Advisory’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Grant Practice for major transit projects, following 19 years of FTA service.
Feldman joins WSP from FTA, where he served most recently as Deputy Regional Administrator for the Region 10 office in Seattle, Wash., leading 20 transportation professionals managing a $20 billion transit project portfolio. (Region 10 covers Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska.)
During his tenure at FTA, Feldman provided technical assistance to transit agencies, which led to the award of Capital Improvement Grants for Sound Transit’s Link light rail system in Seattle; TriMet’s Max Orange and Green lines in Portland, Ore.; and several bus rapid transit systems in Oregon and Washington.
Before joining FTA, Feldman managed design and construction grants for the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s Seattle regional office and served as an officer in the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps.
“As a key member of the WSP Advisory team, Ken’s depth of knowledge developed from years of successes in the Northwest will be a tremendous asset to our clients across the U.S.,” said Denise Turner Roth, National Business Line Executive for WSP USA Advisory.
