Steve Ambrose, a former scientist at NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has joined Woolpert as program director for the company’s government solutions business.
He brings more than 40 years of Earth science, data engineering, climatology and geospatial experience to his new position, Woolpert said Tuesday.
Jeff Lovin, senior vice president and director of government solutions at Woolpert, said he believes Ambrose's science and research work with multiple federal organizations will help expand the company’s presence in the public sector market.
Ambrose also previously held positions at NOAA’s National Weather Service, National Ocean Service and National Environmental Data and Information Service offices, and at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service‘s National Wetlands Inventory.
“I hope to help leverage the data Woolpert collects to reduce risk at a national and international scale toward improved community resilience,” he said.
“This is a very important job with much responsibility serving all levels of government.“
