WSP USA's L.A. office names new transportation leadership team

Posted on August 19, 2019

WSP USA appointed four staff into significant leadership roles in Los Angeles, one of the firm’s most complex and fastest growing regions.

Victor Martinez, former area manager for the Orange and San Bernardino offices, has been appointed as the new Los Angeles office area manager and Southwest district manager.

Cecily Way, former senior planning manager, has been named the new Los Angeles office operations manager.

Steven Kats was named business development manager for Los Angeles, where he is responsible for driving the client engagement teams, including developing key client relationships.

Claudette Moody has been named director for policy, strategy, and government relations in the Southwest District, a role she will assume in addition to her previous duties on the Los Angeles leadership team.

The team members have operated in Southern California, delivering numerous complex infrastructure projects ranging from the California High-Speed Rail – the single largest infrastructure project in the U.S., to the Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement.

In their new positions, they will work closely with regional management teams to deliver successful projects, support diversification and growth, drive strategic vision and ensure the region meets its financial goals.

In his previous role as area manager, Martinez demonstrated success in sales, operations, and financial performance to grow the business in his region. Throughout his career, he has successfully served in various leadership roles at the regional, district, and office level.

Way provides a unique combination of leadership and industry expertise. Her interdisciplinary, proactive approach to problem solving enables her to successfully manage and exceed client expectations and project objectives.

Kats will be responsible for developing strategic teaming arrangements for major pursuits. He is a board member for the Valley Industry Commerce Assoc. and the American Council of Engineering Companies. He will also be taking on additional duties assisting on key pursuits in the Southwest District.

Moody’s new role includes assisting with the implementation of the firm’s strategic and civic engagement plans for both Los Angeles and the Southwest District. She is heavily involved in several local organizations, including Mobility 21 and the Los Angeles Business Council, where she has served as a board member for the past four years.
