Ashur Yoseph has joined WSP USA as a senior vice president in the engineering firm’s San Francisco office.
Yoseph will now be tasked with business development in support of WSP’s property and buildings and transportation and infrastructure businesses.
With more than 30 years of experience, Yoseph has knowledge of advancing and implementing strategies to increase public and private sector expansion, WSP said. He most recently served as infrastructure development manager in San Francisco’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
“Ashur’s deep local relationships, knowledge of infrastructure projects and strong connections in the local business community will be strong assets for WSP,” said Sarah Kuchera, senior vice president and managing director of the firm’s property and buildings business in San Francisco.
Yoseph is an alumnus of Sacramento State University, where he received a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering technology. He is a member of the Board of Advisors, Bay Area Council Economic Institute, the Project Management Institute and the Sacramento State University Alumni Association.
WSP’s recent projects in the San Francisco Bay area include work on 181 Fremont, the third-tallest building in the city, where WSP’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing, Built Ecology, and building technology systems groups collaborated with Jay Paul, the owner and Heller Manus, the architect, to implement innovative methods while focusing on water and energy reduction.
The firm has also been involved in the development of Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) for more than six decades, among other projects in the region.
