KCI is pleased to announce that Beth Ostrowski, PE, PTOE, has been promoted to transportation regional practice leader in the firm’s Nashville, Tennessee, office. She will oversee traffic planning and design, as well as roundabout and bikeway design, and traffic data collection operations across the state while simultaneously leading business and staff development and strategic planning efforts throughout the region.
Ostrowski joined KCI in 2017 as a senior project manager, and since that time has quickly grown into management roles of increasing responsibility, most recently leading KCI’s traffic studies team. Her prolific career in traffic studies, transportation planning, intelligent transportation systems design and neighborhood traffic management has led to her recognition as an expert in the Nashville region. Ostrowski will leverage her experience in project management and operations oversight to continue expanding KCI’s capabilities in the Southeast and supporting the firm’s growing client base in Tennessee.
As KCI continues to increase our transportation footprint in Tennessee, I am confident that Beth will lead us to new heights. She is passionate about her work, dedicated to the company’s success, and always takes multiple angles into account when making decisions. Beth excels when facing a challenge.
