West Yost Associates (West Yost) expands its operations into Southern California and hires five new team members who will work from a new office in Irvine, California. Stephen Dopudja, Momocilo Savovic, Kristen Whatley, Cynthia Paredes, and Jack Riedel joined West Yost on August 30, 2014. “The ability to hire an established team of professionals already working locally in Irvine was a unique and auspicious opportunity,” said Charles Duncan, president, West Yost Associates. “This geographic expansion of our firm is the right fit for serving our existing Southern California clients while establishing a foundation for continuing to build on our core strengths in water, groundwater, wastewater, infrastructure, and construction management.”
“In joining West Yost, the new team based out of Irvine will continue to deliver capital improvement, water resource, redevelopment and infrastructure engineering services in Southern California, and will also provide owners advisory and construction management services,” said Stephen Dopudja, a California-licensed Professional Engineer, who will lead the Irvine office. This will be the first Southern California office for West Yost, with five exisiting office locations in Northern California and one in Eugene, Oregon.
