The new leadership team make-up is both existing Otak leaders in expanded roles and leaders new to Otak. The focus of the team is to leverage expertise and technical knowledge in both Oregon and SW Washington with teams dedicated to the needs of public and private clients.
“We find ourselves in the fortunate position of having strong teams at all levels throughout Otak, by structuring teams with leadership focused on public or private exclusively, we’ll better meet the unique needs of each,” Otak CEO Jim Hamann said.
For private clients, Otak leads the planning, civil engineering, architecture design, and comprehensive project management on projects in the Portland Metro area. Together, Leavitt and Fleener coordinate engineering, project planning, and architecture services to help developers and owners prove out their project concepts and take them through entitlement to construction. Alaman’s comprehensive project management team helps owners through the process of construction and commissioning.
Otak’s private practice is for DOT’s, public works departments, library districts, school districts, water districts, and ports. Williams' state and local agency-focused team can provide a range of planning and design services from urban planning to roadway and bridge design, from stormwater management to park and recreational trail planning and design. Teamed with Fleener and Alaman, Otak's public client team has delivered public facilities from affordable housing to libraries and courthouses.
