WGI CEO David Wantman, PE proudly announces the hire of Director—Project Excellence Kimberlee DeBosier. “Kim’s four-decade career in leadership of engineering and transportation organizations, with a particular appreciation for the Florida markets, will be a tremendous addition to the team,” Wantman noted. Her focus will be divided between growth in the infrastructure markets and project delivery excellence — taking an already high-performing firm to another level.
“Kim DeBosier brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our business platforms,” noted WGI President Gregory Sauter. “She will be a key collaborator on strategic pursuits, partnering, and company leadership in the Florida region as well as an important contributor to WGI’s executive team.” Her industry knowledge is highlighted through her broad experience. She was the co-founder and president of Bayside Engineering for over two decades, which was ultimately acquired and successfully integrated into a national firm. Her expert leadership is recognized throughout the transportation profession and is reflected in the key roles she plays in state and national organizations, including the National Director, American Council of Engineering Companies of Florida; former Chair of the Center for Urban Transportation Research at University of South Florida; former four-year Chair of the Tampa-Hillsborough County Expressway Authority; Trustee of the Florida Engineering Foundation; Fellow-American Council of Engineering Companies; and Fellow-Florida Engineering Society. She received numerous awards and recognition for her leadership and accomplishments.
WGI’s commitment to its professionals and clients is paramount. DeBosier’s hire reinforces a culture of project excellence across all divisions. It also supports WGI’s mission to provide its associate the optimal tools, with specific focus on project managers and the linkage between project and financial performance.
WGI is committed to the communities in which it works and lives. DeBosier’s involvement in the Tampa region is another strong indicator of her character and philosophy of giving back. These include Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, Hillsborough County Commission on the Status of Women, and many others. This aligns very well with WGI’s beliefs and reinforces its ties to communities.
Senior Vice President, PE, Transportation, Nancy Clements commented: “I am very excited to have Kim on our team to help guide our business plan and ensure the continued delivery of quality ideas and deliverables to our clients. She will be especially helpful to my Transportation Division as we continue to grow and reinforce our capabilities and be the full-service consultant of choice.”
