Minneapolis, Minn –Design and consulting firm WSB announced the expansion of leadership within their firm. Robert Doty has been hired as director of transportation design, and Brittney Davis has joined as director of transportation planning. The addition of these roles place WSB in a strong position as they continue to support infrastructure needs across the state of Texas. 

“Robert is key to our growth as we strive to expand our national presence,” said David Balmos, vice president of strategy. “He is well-rounded with backgrounds in planning, design, business development and community relations. His leadership will help our transportation division excel. We know we have to have the right people to succeed, and we have found that in Robert.”

Doty joins WSB with over 24 years of experience and an extensive history in the Houston market. He supports WSB with design within Houston and the surrounding areas and business in the Government market. His technical background and leadership are valuable to the firm.

“I was drawn to WSB because of the possibilities and the people,” said Doty. “Every interaction I have had with the staff proves they are excited to make a difference. I look forward to the future of this firm, and I am excited to be part of it.”

WSB also welcomes Brittney Davis to the Texas transportation leadership team. She has taken the role of director of transportation planning, specializing on federal projects requiring the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). With over 15 years of experience in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry and a primary focus in NEPA, she brings immense value to WSB.

“The stars aligned when hiring Brittney,” said Steve Lindsey, director of transportation design. “Her expertise provides a tremendous opportunity to better support our clients and complements our existing staff and services well. Her hiring falls in line with our goal of expanding nationally, and we are excited to see the bright future of WSB with the addition of her experience and guidance.”

Davis assists with increasing environmental transportation projects in Texas and provides mentorship for emerging leaders and young professionals.

“I am excited to be here,” said Davis. “I have only heard great things about WSB from friends and clients, and after meeting current staff— I knew this was a position I wanted to take. I look forward to pursuing work and continuing to build the impressive legacy of WSB.”

WSB recently acquired engineering firm EST, a design firm headquartered in Oklahoma City with a strong presence in north Texas. Adding staff, offices, regions and a handful of services, WSB continues to expand on a national level. The firm’s presence across the United States includes increased collaboration and services to better support communities and advance infrastructure.
