DENVER--()--SEH has hired Paul Wells as Regional Practice Center Leader for the company’s Highway Design practice in its West Region. Mr. Wells will lead a growing practice that serves municipalities, counties, state and federal agencies, and private clients.
Mr. Wells comes to SEH from URS, where he held the position of Transportation Design Group Manager. His experience includes interstate, highway, arterial, and interchange design. Mr. Wells has completed multiple state and local agency design projects in his career.
