Engineering services provider Arup has named Susan Baer Global Aviation Business Leader, the company said.
Baer´s predecessor, Peter Budd, is retiring, and will continue to support the aviation team in an advisory capacity.
Baer joined Arup in 2013, heading up its aviation business in the Americas region and directing global aviation planning. Through her superior negotiation and communication skills, she ensures that collaborations between planners, engineers, airport operators, and airlines are focused on the successful delivery of projects in the best interests of all stakeholders.
In her new position, Baer will capitalize on one of Arup´s key resources: its ability to mobilize its experts around the world.
A provider of interdisciplinary engineering, consulting, and design services, Arup works on projects from city-building to iconic architecture. The firm opened its first US office over 30 years ago, and now employs 1,300 people in the Americas. Since its founding in 1946, Arup has pioneered groundbreaking strategies, technical excellence, and social purpose.
