NEW YORK — WSP USA, a leading engineering and professional services consultancy, has appointed Jeffrey Heilstedt as its national tolling market leader.
Heilstedt, a 30-year industry veteran, will lead a company-wide effort to bring clients the most advanced and innovative tolling solutions, enhancing WSP’s presence in the tolling market. As a national resource, he will work closely with tolling entities across the country that are looking to build new or rehabilitate aging facilities, generate new revenue streams, and improve the experience for their customers.
“Jeff’s knowledge of the transportation industry and his ability to understand the challenges and opportunities facing toll agencies will be a tremendous asset to our clients,” said Michael Mangione, WSP’s market leader for highways and bridges.
Previously, Heilstedt was regional business line leader for a large international engineering firm, where he was integral to the company’s tolling practice and led business growth for highways, bridges, airports, transit, freight rail and ports.
Heilstedt has a bachelor of science in civil engineering from Iowa State University. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the International Bridge Tunnel and Turnpike Association.
WSP supports turnpike authorities, state departments of transportation, regional mobility authorities, and concessionaires with a full suite of planning, engineering and management services. The firm provides services for nearly all the 25 largest US toll agencies.
