ATLANTA (Feb. 2, 2017) – Taiwo Jaiyeoba joined HNTB Corporation as regional business development manager. He supports clients in Atlanta, the Carolinas and throughout the country, and is based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“Taiwo joins HNTB with significant transit planning experience in the Southeast and nationally,” said Jeffrey Parker, HNTB Atlanta office leader and vice president. “He is a vital asset to our transit clients bringing not only a strong client perspective, but also innovative approaches to transit planning, especially corridor development.”

Jaiyeoba has 26 years of experience in planning, managing major land-use and transit studies, and capital projects throughout the U.S. He has worked directly with the Federal Transit Administration on several projects and has 20 years of work experience for transit agencies most recently in California and Michigan.

HNTB’s transit work in the Southeast has helped shape and expand the region’s multimodal transportation network. The firm currently serves as construction manager for the Charlotte Area Transit System’s Blue Line Extension in Charlotte, North Carolina. After completion, the project will connect 20 miles of the city and is expected to nearly double 2035 ridership projections.
