TKDA Looks West with New Project Manager Hire
Craig Edmondson, CPEng, has joined our rail team in Seattle as a Project Manager. Having worked in Australia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and in the US, he brings international engineering experience to TKDA. His expertise in the rail and transit industry will be invaluable as he joins our growing team in Seattle.
After receiving his double bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and commerce from the University of New South Wales, Craig progressed his career on various high speed rail, heavy rail, light rail, monorail, commuter rail and freight intermodal/industrial development projects. Additionally, Craig garnered multi-faceted experience working as Program/Project Manager, Project Engineer and track designer.
“I am excited to welcome Craig Edmondson to our West Coast team. Craig brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in project and program management, coupled with strong leadership skills,” said West Coast Group Manager Justino Cruz. “His rail expertise and the perspective of his international background is the perfect combination we need to execute our market strategy in the Pacific Northwest.”
Craig’s project experience speaks for itself. In the UAE, he worked as a Package Manager on several freight facilities on the Etihad Rail project developing the freight rail network across the country. In Australia, he was responsible for managing the design of 19 stations for the Sydney Light Rail project, and more recently in the US, he served as part of the Program Management team overseeing the Sepulveda Transit Corridor for LA Metro.
“We are thrilled to have Craig on our team,” Andy Wagstrom, Vice President of Rail at TKDA, said. “He brings the type of expertise TKDA was founded on that will drive TKDA into the future.”
In his free time, Craig loves spending time with his wife and one-year-old son. He also enjoys hiking and traveling to new places, the perfect combination for a move to the Pacific Northwest.
