Indianapolis’ Woolpert names aviation head

Indianapolis’ Woolpert has promoted Chris Snyder to lead its aviation market and guide the logistical and innovative expansion of its geospatial and design practices.

Snyder said the firm plans to strengthen its presence in targeted geographies that include Texas and Florida, to augment key niche service offerings like unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and strategic asset management consulting, and to grow the firm’s planning capabilities.

Snyder began his career with Woolpert in 2001 as an airport engineer and most recently served as aviation design practice leader. He said he has always been impressed with the firm’s entrepreneurial spirit and its ability to identify potential in its staff and clients.
