SAN JOSE, California (June 15, 2016) – WMH Corporation, a specialist in transportation infrastructure design, is pleased to welcome Dan Collen, PE, as a Senior Consultant.
Dan brings over 35 years of experience in transportation design and planning to the WMH team. Before joining WMH, Dan spent his career at Santa Clara County Roads and Airport Department.
