MRB Group President Ryan Colvin recently announced that Shawn Bray, PE, has joined the firm’s Rochester team.  An expert in aviation planning, engineering and design, Bray also comes from a strong municipal background having direct experience in town and county public works operations.

A graduate of RIT with a degree in Civil Engineering Technology, Bray was recently responsible for managing the planning and capital project needs for more than 30 airports in New York, Vermont, and Connecticut.  He also has been involved in numerous multi-million dollar highway projects, utility studies, tunnel designs, and traffic studies.

“Shawn will no doubt be a strong contributor to the continued growth in our Rochester team,” Colvin said.  “His project management success in the airport industry demonstrates impressive capabilities that translate well to our municipal clients,” Colvin continued.  He cited Bray’s proven ability to manage highly visible, complex projects while meeting strict FAA regulations and project timelines.

“Our client communities depend on MRB Group to make sure they are fully compliant with regulatory agencies.  When external funding sources require additional reporting, there’s even greater accountability,” Colvin stated.  “We look for engineering professionals with the ability to cut through red-tape, execute plans with precision, and complete projects on time.  That’s what attracted us to Shawn, and Shawn to MRB Group,” he concluded.

MRB Group has provided the greater Rochester and Central New York regions with professional engineering and architecture since 1927.   Experts in infrastructure, water and wastewater, municipal planning, facility design/rehabilitation, GIS, and construction phase services, MRB Group currently serves more than 120 municipalities across New York State, often in an advisory and consulting capacity as Municipal / Term Engineers.
