LOWELL, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/26/17 -- TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR), a recognized leader in engineering, environmental consulting and construction-management services, today announced that Doug Massih, Senior Vice President, has been appointed as the new leader for the firm's Infrastructure sector. Massih was previously the Infrastructure sector Deputy Director and SVP.
"Doug has been absolutely instrumental in transforming our infrastructure business from a regional model to our now successful nationally integrated practice," said Chris Vincze, TRC's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Doug is a born leader and is also generous in giving the next generation of leaders the support they need through our project management training program and through less formal mentoring relationships. We're extremely lucky to have a well-rounded asset like Doug at the firm, and we know in this new role he will continue to help the company grow."
Massih has more than 30 years of technical services and comprehensive business-related experience. He has worked with clients ranging from public agencies to Fortune 500 companies on projects that have exceeded $2.0 billion in the transportation market.
He has overseen notable growth in TRC's Construction Engineering & Inspection, Materials Inspection and Geotechnical Drilling capabilities. His team specializes in planning, design and construction engineering services for high profile bridge and roadway projects and has gained recognition as a pioneer in Seismic Structural Engineering for bridges in active earthquake zones.
In addition, Massih initiated and manages the Infrastructure Sector's Public-Private Partnership (P3) discipline, which provides consulting and advisory services for Infrastructure Development clients. P3 projects utilize a combination of private and public financing, including multi-billion dollar transportation concessions and greenfield development work, and Massih has been key in fueling the Company's growth in this area while increasing project backlog.
"The infrastructure market is poised for exponential growth," Massih said. "TRC is well-positioned to help our clients design major upgrades to critical infrastructure, manage and administer their construction projects, navigate alternative project delivery models and implement technology solutions that support our communities' transportation systems. A lot has changed in this industry during the past 30 years, but what stayed the same might be more important -- our team's focus on listening to our clients, getting to know them and their needs, and delivering creative, cost-effective solutions to their challenges as quickly as possible through a variety of project delivery methods."
Massih earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Lafayette College in Easton, Penn. He is an active member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Society of Highway Engineers.
