Woolpert Welcomes Roads and Bridges Program Director Judi DeWilde Craig, AICP
CINCINNATI (June 21, 2019) — Woolpert has hired Judi DeWilde Craig, AICP, as a program director for its Roads and Bridges market. The transportation planner brings 25 years of experience in delivering successful private- and public-sector projects and an extensive skill set in funding strategies, program management and stakeholder relationships to the firm.
Craig most recently served as a regional manager and vice president for a San Francisco firm specializing in strategic planning, construction engineering and facilities management. Prior to moving to California, the Western Kentucky and University of Cincinnati graduate led civil engineers and transportation planners conducting multimillion-dollar projects in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. Throughout her career, she has excelled at connecting with and motivating teams, stakeholders and officials to deliver successful projects.
She said she plans to leverage her relationships across the region to provide new and existing clients with innovation and excellence in transportation planning and design.
“The opportunity to work on Ohio-based transportation projects allows me to work closely with the staff at the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), who I worked with before relocating to the West Coast for a few years,” Craig said. “Working with Woolpert gets me back in the game of delivering infrastructure services in communities that I’m passionate about with a team that I’m proud to represent.”
Woolpert Roads and Bridges Practice Leader Ron Mattox, PE, said Craig’s financial, engineering and management experience, as well as her extensive work with departments of transportation across the country, will directly benefit the firm’s clients.
“Judi is well-versed in collecting and analyzing data to manage assets most effectively, and these skills will save clients time and money,” Mattox said. “Her work supports the firm’s trajectory of working across the architecture, engineering and geospatial (AEG) industries to create inspired solutions and capabilities. We’re very excited to have Judi on board.”
Craig is certified by the American Institute of Certified Planners and holds professional memberships in the Women’s Transportation Seminar International, the Urban Land Institute, the Council of Minority Transportation Officials National, the American Planning Association and the Construction Management Association of America.
She said she is looking forward to exploring the possibilities afforded by her position at Woolpert.
“I am excited about the innovation that Woolpert brings to transportation, and the direction that the company is headed,” she said. “I’ve known Woolpert for years, but I only knew about a fraction of the services that the company provides. Leveraging the whole Woolpert toolkit is a tremendous growth opportunity for me, and I hope to help the firm continue to move the industry forward.”
