Jim Brady Joins ASHE East Penn Board of Directors

Sep 15, 2021

Jim Brady, P.E., senior project manager in the Douglassville office, was recently appointed to the board of directors of the East Penn chapter of the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE). As a premier organization in the transportation industry, ASHE’s mission is to provide a forum for members and partners of the highway industry to promote a safe, efficient, and sustainable highway system through education, innovation, and fellowship. Brady joins fellow colleague Michael Grantner, P.E., senior project manager in Philadelphia, who also serves on the board.

“I’m thrilled to join ASHE East Penn’s board of directors,” Brady said. “Although ASHE stayed active in a virtual atmosphere during the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m particularly excited to join now that we’re turning a corner and returning to in-person activities. I look forward to getting to know everyone in the chapter and serving for the next three years.”

Since joining STV in 2008, Brady has been involved in a wide range of highway/bridge projects in the Mid-Atlantic region, including the I-95 Betsy Ross Interchange Reconstruction in Philadelphia, and the Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway Northern Section in Pennsylvania. He is project manager for the SR 30 Coatesville Downingtown Bypass Reconstruction project in Chester County, PA, which involves the design of 4.5 miles of limited access highway and three interchanges.

Brady had been a member of the ASHE Delaware Valley section for close to 20 years before also joining the East Penn chapter in 2020. This is his first time serving in a leadership position with ASHE. Other professional organizations he participates in include the American Council of Engineering Companies, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the National Society of Professional Engineers.

Additionally, Brady is on the leadership committee of the Philadelphia chapter of the Future City Competition, a national program that focuses on improving STEM skills for students in grades six through eight by encouraging them to imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future. He also serves as a deacon in his church and assists in other local organizations.

“Although I’ve already clocked many years in this industry, there’s always something to learn and ways you can make a difference,” Brady said. “That philosophy is what drives my passion for participating in the world around me, whether through professional stewardship roles or partaking in volunteer organizations.”
