VHB welcomes Don Zeni as the Vertical Transportation Lead in the Newark, New Jersey, office. In this pivotal role, Don will direct vertical transportation efforts—including elevators and escalators—across all markets, strengthening and expanding VHB’s transportation services and client relationships throughout New Jersey and New York.

Don brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, having previously served as the Vertical Transportation Business Lead in the Northeast for a professional services firm in the New York City metropolitan area. With more than 30 years of experience managing sales, operations, delivery, and personnel in vertical transportation infrastructure across markets, Don has led an impressive array of multi-disciplined projects for both public and private clients.

As VHB experiences remarkable growth across the New Jersey and New York footprint—especially within VHB’s transportation market and services—Don's addition aligns perfectly with recent strategic hires, including Stéphane Lefebvre, Northeast Transportation Market Leader, and John McSweeney, Bridge Structures Lead. Working closely with the New York City team, Don will spearhead VHB's business expansion efforts in the NYC metropolitan area, the Northeast Region, and beyond while providing leadership for the company’s continued market service and expansion.

Joe Pizzurro, NYC Managing Director, said, "We are delighted to welcome Don to our Northeast team. We’re continuing to expand our service offerings across the region, and Don’s strong leadership skills, coupled with his technical knowledge, will further enable us to meet our clients’ ever-evolving needs while driving transformative projects across the Northeast.

“We look forward to the contributions he will make in cementing VHB as the go-to authority in transportation infrastructure solutions as we strive to reshape transportation systems and enhance communities across the region," he continued.

Don holds a BS in Electrical Engineering from Rutgers University.
