Today, U.S. cities and urban systems are being rapidly transformed by innovations that have the potential to create advanced solutions to a myriad of 21st century challenges. Wes Maurer has been a leading figure in accelerating these advancements through progressive leadership and a history of unique partnership building between public and private sector groups.
Wes is currently the vice president for energy policy and innovation at Gannett Fleming, a top global architecture and engineering firm. In this role, Wes builds upon his former work at the Colorado governor’s office and department of transportation where he played a key part in developing some of the most progressive policies and programs for next generation energy, technology, and mobility systems in the United States, positioning Colorado as a national leader.
In the past, Wes’ work has focused more broadly on driving environmental, social, and economic change through urban and regional development with organizations such as the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Peace Corps.
