John Headland has joined Mott MacDonald as a VP and principal project leader for the coastal practice. He is based in the company’s New York City office.

"[John Headland's] recent work in coastal resilience will help foster our global climate change and resilience initiatives," said Nick DeNichilo, president/CEO of Mott MacDonald in North America. 

Over a 35-year career as a port, ocean, coastal, and hydraulic engineer, Headland has specialized in the planning and design of projects throughout the world. He prepared planning studies for new liquefied natural gas marine terminals in Australia, Indonesia, New Guinea, Vietnam, and India, each involving the design of deep-draft navigation channels and dredging. He served as principal in charge for the Bath Shipyard Expansion in Maine and for a passing vessel study on behalf of ExxonMobil at the Port of Los Angeles. 

Headland was principal in charge of a $100 million, 158-acre container terminal upgrade at Port Newark in New Jersey, and project manager for intermodal improvements on the Brooklyn waterfront, in support of the New York City Economic Development Corporation's Strategic Port Plan.
