WSP hires former USDOT director

Engineering firm WSP has hired a transportation P3 expert to be based in Maryland.

Jodie Misiak has been named service area manager, strategic initiatives for alternative delivery advisory services at WSP USA. She arrives from the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) where she served as a senior advisor to the secretary for the Build America Bureau and as a director of project and program development. 

Previously, she was director of the office of innovative project delivery at the Maryland Department of Transportation.

In her new role, Misiak will develop opportunities for new advisory business in infrastructure asset assessment, development, valuation and acquisition. 

She will provide leadership in the utilization of various innovative project delivery and value capture strategies to facilitate infrastructure development in a variety of sectors, and will structure and lead complex, multidisciplinary teams for infrastructure asset project evaluation, delivery and management.

P3 Bulletin revealed last week that Misiak had left the USDOT, along with the executive director of the Build America Bureau, Martin Klepper.
