BELLEVUE, WA — Michael Shannon, PE, returned to HNTB Corporation as Project Director in the firm’s Bellevue office. In his new role, Shannon will work with agencies such as the Washington State Department of Transportation, Sound Transit, Port of Seattle and the Seattle Department of Transportation, helping to strategize and deliver projects and programs.

Shannon has worked in both the public and private sectors and brings 21 years of experience to HNTB. Most recently, he served as District Five Secretary for the Florida Department of Transportation and CEO of SunRail, the commuter rail system serving the Orlando metropolitan area. Managing over 700 employees and a $6-billion, five-year work program, he helped lead Florida’s transportation vision for all modes of travel.

Shannon earned a Master of Science in engineering management at Marshall University Graduate College and a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering at West Virginia Institute of Technology.
