Bridge engineering firm Modjeski and Masters Jan. 10 announced the promotion of Michael Britt to CEO. The appointment follows the year-end retirement of Dr. Barney Martin Jr., who maintains an advisory role with the ARTBA member firm, headquartered in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

Britt, last year promoted to president, is now responsible for executing the firm’s strategic direction, safeguarding long-term success and guiding complex projects at a managerial and technical level.

Britt began his career with the firm while attending Drexel University. He later worked as a bridge engineer in the Pennsylvania Division of the Federal Highway Administration, then rejoined the firm to serve in several positions of increased responsibility and leadership. “I’ve always been honored to be part of Modjeski and Masters, and I’m humbled that the Board of Directors has elected me to this position,” Britt said in company statement.
