Westwood recently appointed Matthew D. Lee, PE, to the position of Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Office Leader, where he will be responsible for supporting the growth of local land, power generation, and corridor operations.

Lee is a registered professional civil engineer in Texas and has served Westwood’s land division as a project manager since 2015. He will continue to serve as a project manager for residential and commercial development clients while leading the DFW office. Lee received his MBA from the University of Texas at Dallas and BS in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University.

As the office leader, Lee will report to Jason McCarty, PE, who is vice president overseeing the firm’s national operations. McCarty says, the firm’s rapid growth in the DFW area led to selecting Lee for the leadership position, “Matt has 14 years of managing projects, complex budgets, and multi-disciplined teams. His leadership experience and business expertise makes him a great choice to manage our Dallas-Fort Worth operations and maintain our growth.”

The DFW office leader position was previously held by Bryan P. Powell, PE, who has been leading Westwood’s land division since 2015. The land division serves clients in residential and commercial markets in multiple geographic locations. Powell was appointed vice president in 2016. This transition enables him to focus on strategic expansion and management of the division.
