Consulting engineering firm HDR has hired Sean Flaherty as its transportation sustainability and resiliency director.
Flaherty has 16 years’ experience centred on advancing sustainability efforts in the public, private and non-profit sectors, including a four-year stint with consulting engineering firm Gresham Smith.
