Atkins, one of the world’s leading design, engineering and project management consultancies, has bolstered its rail leadership in North America with recent hires Ulisses Camilo and Patrick Anderson, PG.

“Well known in the transportation industry, Ulisses and Patrick both have proven track records of driving growth for multimillion dollar rail and transit system businesses,” said Justin Jones, head of Atkins’ intermodal business. “Their past experience aligns perfectly with our long-term plans to expand our rail business and deliver world-class rail capabilities to North American clients.”

Camilo, based in New York City, New York, will lead the firm’s rail business as sector manager, expanding its footprint in the areas of rail engineering, operations and maintenance, and process improvement. A seasoned rail executive, Camilo most recently served as managing director of transit for Faiveley Transport North America and was previously corporate vice president and sector manager of rail transit systems for Parsons Transportation Group. 

Throughout his career, Camilo has had consistent success overseeing rail and transit business units, expanding them into new markets and implementing new delivery models. His project performance includes the national Danish railway signaling program, the Toronto (Canada) Transit City system and the Metrolink rail system in Southern California. 

Anderson will focus on building the firm’s rail-client relationships and delivering high-profile rail and transit projects, particularly in the southwestern United States. A senior division manager based in Austin, Texas, Anderson brings 16 years of experience working with rail and transit agencies across the country, successfully spearheading efforts to establish presence and market share in the transit industry. 

Anderson is active on numerous professional organization working groups and committees, including the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association and the American Public Transportation Association.
