Wes Maurer Promoted to Vice President of Energy Policy and Innovation
Gannett Fleming continues to grow expertise and service offerings in the energy sector by promoting Wes Maurer, AICP, to vice president of energy policy and innovation.
Before joining Gannett Fleming, Maurer served in a variety of executive-level government roles where he functioned as a chief strategist for advancing energy infrastructure, technology, and advanced mobility, including electric and autonomous technology applications. This move is a natural next step in strengthening Gannett Fleming’s leadership in a diverse range of urban and regional development issues in a way that encompasses both public and private sector perspectives. Maurer will be a vital asset as we help our clients navigate the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act’s funds and grants to facilitate growth in the energy services business.
John Derr, PE, executive vice president, added that “During Wes’ tenure leading many of the firm’s advanced mobility and corporate sustainability initiatives, he was a major force in establishing Gannett Fleming in new and emerging market areas. This included a consequential electric grid and charging station innovation project for the U.S. Department of Defense, an electric bus fleet conversion study and design project for the School District of Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Smart Mobility Plan. This promotion will strategically leverage Wes’ combined expertise in both the energy and mobility sectors to enhance the innovative solution offerings that we provide to our clients.”
