Maser Consulting P.A., a national engineering firm headquartered in Red Bank, N.J., has hired Francis J. Miller, III, PE, to lead its rail engineering service division. Miller was formerly chief track engineer and director of high speed rail for Jacobs Engineering Group. He is the current director of the passenger and transit functional group for the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) and is based in Maser Consulting’s Hamilton, N.J., office.

“Maser Consulting has been focusing on building up its railway survey and engineering service division through a combination of geospatial and conventional survey methods specific to commuter transit, light- and heavy-rail, and street car systems,” says Leonardo E. Ponzio, vice president and director of survey services for Maser Consulting. “The addition of Frank Miller to our team to oversee the services we already have in place is truly an asset.”

Miller has more than three decades of experience in the planning, design, construction, inspection and project management of major railway, track and facility engineering projects. Specializing in transit/railway engineering, his undertakings have included major rehabilitation, design-build, and new start projects for mass transportation systems throughout the U.S., including light- and heavy-rail transit systems and commuter, high-speed and freight railroads.
