Reston Office Welcomes Two New Team Members

June 22, 2011

Kittelson & Associates, Inc. (KAI), an international transportation planning, engineering and research firm, welcomes the additions of Senior Engineer Chris Tiesler, PE, and Transportation Analyst Alek Pochowski, to the Reston, Virginia office.

Chris joined the Reston office in March of this year, having previously worked eight years in KAI’s Portland office. Chris has several years’ experience managing a wide range of transportation engineering and planning projects across the United States including: transportation impact analyses for commercial and residential developments; transportation system plans; highway/arterial corridor plans; roundabout analysis, design, and peer review; campus master plans; traffic signal designs; and transportation research projects. Chris is well-regarded for his ability to communicate effectively through design charettes, public hearings, and one-on-one stakeholder meetings.

Alek returns to KAI after receiving his Masters of Science in Civil Engineering, and Masters of City and Regional Planning degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. After starting as an intern in KAI's Portland office, Alek was hired and began his career working in KAI's Baltimore office, where he focused on traffic operations, signal timing, signal design, safety analysis, transit analysis and data collection, roundabouts, research, transportation planning, and traffic impact studies.

The Reston office is led by Principal Engineer Brandon Nevers, PE, PTOE, along with John Callow, PE, Senior Principal Engineer. Together, they offer a full range of transportation engineering and planning services to Mid-Atlantic clients, including transportation impact analyses and meeting/hearing support, research, traffic design, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), roundabout evaluations, expert witness services, corridor studies, and transportation planning services.

We are excited to grow our Reston team with the additions of Chris and Alek. They bring a great energy, a customer service focus, and a variety of skills and experiences to the office that will serve clients well for many years to come.
