MIAMI, FL — Santiago (Sandy) Amores has been named South Florida Local Business Leader at WSP, an engineering, environment, and professional services consultancy.

Amores, who has been with WSP for seven years — most recently as a Vice President leading the South Florida transit and rail group — has spent more than 35 years in the transportation industry, primarily in the public sector. Based in WSP’s Miami office, Amores will work throughout South Florida.

“Sandy has been instrumental in achieving improvements in operational performance for major public transit agencies and on public works projects, throughout his career,” said Claudia Bilotto, Senior Vice President and Southeast District Leader at WSP. “He is coordinating with our teams and regional leadership to increase cross market collaboration, while serving our clients to advance projects and enhance communities throughout South Florida.”

In addition to his knowledge of intergovernmental and labor relations, Amores has applied his expertise to strategic planning, finance and budgeting, public involvement, materials management and general administration, and management of various government contracts.

At WSP, Amores has overseen contract administration and project management for Broward County Transit and Palm Tran in Palm Beach County. Prior to joining WSP, Amores held several key positions with the Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works.

Amores is a graduate of Barry University with a bachelor’s degree in professional studies.
