HNTB Corporation’s Ashley Booth was named as a “Top 40 Under 40” award recipient by Mass Transit magazine. The ninth annual award recognizes 40 transit industry professionals under the age of 40 for their academic, professional and community achievements.
Booth, HNTB national streetcar practice leader and associate vice president, is an integral member of the firm’s transit/rail infrastructure team. He is based in Milwaukee and supports clients’ projects nationwide.
Since joining HNTB in 2007, Booth has set himself apart by becoming a go-to thought leader and trusted adviser for some of the firm’s most important clients. He leads a group of nearly 30 employees who support the firm’s transit and other infrastructure projects. Previously, he served as one of the youngest sales managers in HNTB history, helping the Milwaukee office achieve record sales for three consecutive years.
Throughout his career, Booth has been intimately involved in the successful completion and planning for transit projects around the country. This includes serving as project manager responsible for leading the final design team on the $100 million, 2.1-mile modern streetcar in downtown Milwaukee and the $30 million Milwaukee Streetcar Lakefront Line projects, which are under construction and expected to open in 2018. He also has played integral roles in other high-profile projects, such as the M-1 RAIL QLINE in Detroit, which opened this year for revenue service on May 12. Milwaukee and Detroit both have the most robust off-wire/battery-powered streetcar systems in the United States. He also is project manager for the 3.3-mile TramLinkBR streetcar in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and deputy project manager for the East-West BRT in Milwaukee County.
