Aviation Planning Group Manager
With CMT since 2004, Doug was promoted to Group Manager of Aviation Planning in 2017. He has been lead planner and project manager for a wide range of client initiatives and oversees consulting efforts for master plans, airspace analysis/obstruction mitigation, cost-benefit analysis, environmental NEPA processing, aviation demand projections, GIS and asset management and land acquisition.
From optimizing airfields at major hubs to evaluating international perishable cargo flows and airport privatization, Doug helps clients hone in on the key issues and arrive at transformative concepts.
“The tools available to us today are astounding, particularly as we move into the age of Big Data. The ability to leverage these powerful resources for a planning initiative is in knowing how to apply in the right context. It really is an art.”
Doug helps clients in a collaborative fashion to define a path forward in a constantly evolving industry environment.
“Finding the right balance between meeting regulatory requirements and the needs of users is essential for the success of our airports. Because CMT’s involvement extends through funding and construction, our planning practice brings an added perspective that results in exceptional value to the programming outcomes.”
