Urban is pleased to announce that Michael J. McAtee, PE, has been named office manager of the firm’s Cherry Hill location. He previously served as Urban’s New Jersey bridge department manager.
“Mike has spent more than 22 years bringing excellent engineering service to our clients and their communities, and he is an outstanding choice to lead our Cherry Hill office,” said Urban Senior Vice President William Thomsen, PE. “Through continuous leadership in our industry and his in-depth knowledge of the profession, many have come to rely on him as a trusted advisor, and mentor.”
Urban Engineers recently moved its New Jersey office to the Woodland Falls Corporate Center at 220 Lake Drive East in Cherry Hill. The new office allows the firm to better provide planning, design, and construction services to a wide array of clients, including the New Jersey Department of Transportation and the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, as well as numerous counties, municipalities, and institutions throughout the state.
“There’s not only ample space for our current staff, but also room for us to expand in the Garden State,” said Mr. McAtee. “We have all of the amenities to create an outstanding work environment.”
