Manchester, CT – Civil and environmental engineering firm Fuss & O’Neill is proud to announce the promotion of Jamie Brätt to the role of Community Development Business Line Leader and Vice President. Jamie has nearly two decades of experience in the public sector. She began her career in commercial real estate and community development in Washington, D.C. before returning to her home state of Connecticut to serve as a senior official in local municipal governments. Additionally, Jamie currently serves on the Board of Directors for The Betty Knox Foundation, a nonprofit organization that addresses social, economic, and cultural needs in Hartford, CT.
As Community Development Business Line Leader, Jamie will lead the firm’s Civil Engineering, Landscape Architecture/Planning, and Survey Departments. The Community Development Business Line works with municipalities, developers, companies, and residents to redevelop underutilized properties, to create gathering spaces, and to establish new institutions – all which drive economic growth. Jamie’s extensive experience with streetscape improvements, community master plans, transit-oriented development, brownfield redevelopment, and historic renovation projects make her ideally suited for this new role.
Kevin Johnson, Fuss & O’Neill’s Executive Vice President of Business Development, notes: “Jaime brings a fresh perspective to this job.
