Cumberland County-based bridge designer Modjeski and Masters has named Michael Britt, the company’s senior vice president, its new president, effective Jan. 1, 2017.
Britt, who has served in his current role since 2012, will assume the role of president from CEO Barney Martin. Martin has been serving in both roles and will remain CEO.
“Mike understands the industry, as well as its constantly evolving facets,” Martin said in a statement. “He has the foresight to bring innovation to the way we do things here and is open to new ideas that will take us where we want to go in the future.”
In June, the Silver Spring Township-based company opened an office in North Carolina, its 11th office. Last fall, Modjeski and Masters acquired Colorado-based Summit Engineering Group Inc., which specializes in segmental concrete bridge design and construction.
Britt began his career with the company in 1979 as a co-op student while attending Drexel University. He briefly left the company in 1989 to serve as the assistant division bridge engineer in the Pennsylvania Division of the Federal Highway Administration.
Modjeski and Masters has been in business for 123 years. The company finished 2015 with $40.5 million in revenue.
