Dam safety and design firm announces transition


Global infrastructure firm Gannett Fleming has named Rod Holderbaum as its new Dams and Hydraulics Practice leader, the Pennsylvania-based company has announced.

Holderbaum, who had served as vice president and manager of Gannet Fleming's Dams and Hydraulics Section, replaces 47-year company veteran Bill Bingham.

"The success of our dams practice over the years is truly a reflection of Rod's expertise and leadership," Bingham said. "His professional and thoughtful approach to our business has gained the trust of both our staff and our clients. I am sure our Dams and Hydraulics Practice will continue to thrive under Rod's direction."

Holderbaum is a registered professional engineer in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, New York, Ohio and West Virginia, with more than 40 years of experience in the industry. Gannett Fleming said he has served as project manager on a number of award-winning, multi-million dollar projects throughout the United States, including work on the Gilboa, Elkwater Fork and Olivenhain dams.

The Pennsylvania State University alumnus is also a member of the U.S. Society on Dams, the Association of State Dam Safety Officials, and the American Concrete Institute.

Gannett Fleming was founded in 1915 and now has more than 60 offices around the world. The company will be exhibiting at HydroVision International 2013 in Booth No. 956. For more information about HydroVision, which runs July 23-26 at Denver's Colorado Convention Center, visit here.
