As a national leader in the planning and design of such infrastructure, WGI looks forward to providing innovative solutions to transportation, water, real estate development, and climate-related challenges.
Travis will lead the WGI finance and accounting team, primarily based in the company’s West Palm Beach, Florida headquarters, while dividing his time between West Palm Beach and the company’s second-largest office in Austin, Texas, during his full-time transition to Florida.
