13 April 2017 Engineering giant WSP|Parsons Brinckerhoff announces senior P3 appointments in New York and Washington; advisory head makes case for Hudson tunnel P3

Denise Turner Roth, former administrator of the US General Services Administration (GSA), has been named a senior advisor at WSP|Parsons Brinckerhoff. Roth will assist public and private sector clients with buildings, infrastructure and energy projects. Prior to joining GSA, she served as city manager for Greensboro, North Carolina.

John Porcari, president of the firm’s US advisory services said: “Denise brings to WSP|Parsons Brinckerhoff extensive experience in building services, technology transformation for the federal government, community relations, public-private partnerships, and policy work in economic development.”

Meanwhile, Fred Tallarico has joined the firm as director of alternative delivery for the Northeast and Central regions.

With 30 years’ experience, he will manage pursuit and execution of transit, highway, and infrastructure projects using alternative delivery methods such as P3s. He will be based in the firm’s New York City office. 

Tallarico joins from Jacobs, where he was responsible for pursuit identification, capture planning, contract negotiations and management oversight of alternative delivery projects.

Porcari confirmed to national and regional media this week that P3 may be used to deliver the Hudson Tunnel Projects under the Gateway Program, particularly if the scheme does not receive federal funding.  Pocari is the interim executive director of the Gateway Program Development Corporation.
