Derek Brown Accelerates Burns’ Growth in Washington, D.C. Region

February 18, 2022

Burns announces the promotion of Derek Brown as Director, Washington, D.C. Region.

Derek’s promotion reflects his critical role overseeing the rapid expansion of multidisciplinary engineering services for railroad, transit agency, aviation, and institutional clients throughout the Greater Washington region.

Derek offers extensive experience rolling out large-scale technology upgrades for federal, state, and local government agencies. An expert in future-proofed solutions that deliver attractive financial returns, Derek applies his background in capital planning to guide clients throughout the design and integration challenges of emerging technologies for controls, electric traction, fiber and wireless communications, and facility-management solutions.

Derek’s role has grown as the Washington, D.C. office has broadened Burns’ services to new clients and increasingly complex projects within the region. Recent projects include new fiber communications infrastructure, traction power upgrades, utility coordination, and train control systems for Amtrak and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) — including the Potomac Yard Metro Station.

Derek is the point of contact for transit agency, aviation, federal government, and healthcare institution clients across the D.C., Maryland and Virginia (DMV) region.
