Edward Searle, formerly international director of Louis Berger‘s rail and transit business and a chartered civil engineer, has been promoted to vice president for international rail and transit.
“Eddy has been well recognized by our staff, partners and most, importantly our clients for his excellence and has played a key role in the growth and development of the company’s rail and transit market sector,” D. James Stamatis, president of international operations at Louis Berger, said Tuesday.
In his new role, Searle will be in charge of the rail and transit practice’s strategic direction in the international market.
He will continue his leadership of the company’s Doha Metro program for Qatar Rail, where he is now additionally responsible for coordination of the Louis Berger and Egis Rail joint venture’s work packages.
He has more than three decades of experience in design and project management for international rail and transit projects, including his service as AECOM‘s rail and transit director for Europe.
