Eric J. Root, P.E., was promoted to VP of STV. An electrical engineer with more than 20 years of experience, Root has led several large-scale transportation, utility and power generation initiatives throughout North America. In his new role, Root will be responsible for managing the rail systems design component for the firm’s various design-build contracts across the U.S. and Canada.

Since joining STV’s Charlotte office in 2005, Root’s expertise in rail and transit systems and infrastructure has been instrumental in the success of several major projects. He oversaw the systems management for the 9.3-mile extension of the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) Blue Line Extension and the construction management for the CATS Blue Line Starter System. He is currently serving as the systems design manager on the ION light rail project for the Region of Waterloo Rapid Transit Division in Ontario, Canada.

Prior to joining STV, Root helped develop computer simulations to analyze the power needs for light rail systems in Dallas and Pittsburgh. He also has design experience in utility and power generation projects and supported plans for upgrades at several electrical generating facilities throughout the U.S.

Root earned a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and is a licensed professional engineer in several states.
