CEO of Cumberland County bridge design firm to retire
A Cumberland County engineering firm plans to announce a new CEO next year following the retirement of its current leader.
Modjeski and Masters CEO Barney Martin Jr. announced plans to leave the firm Thursday. He has worked for the company, which specializes in bridge design, since 1976. He became CEO in 2013.
Martin's retirement comes a little less than a year after he stepped down as the firm's president, a role he had held for several years in addition to serving as CEO. Longtime firm engineer Michael Britt has served as president since Martin left the position in January 2017.
Martin joined Modjeski and Masters as a design engineer and contributed to many of its major projects, including the rehabilitations of several prominent New York bridges.
Martin's retirement will be effective Dec. 31. The firm's board of directors plans to name his replacement in early 2018.
Modjeski and Master has 11 offices, including its headquarters in Silver Spring Township.
