Braidwood appoints Juckes to lead New Jersey operation


Braidwood Associates has announced that Matthew Juckes has been appointed to lead the company’s second and newest American office in New Jersey.

Juckes joins the Scottish headquartered specialist microsimulation traffic modelling consultancy having previously worked on projects for some of America’s largest departments of transportation including New York City, New York State, Wisconsin, California and New Jersey.

Braidwood Associates, which was established in 2005 by Scottish entrepreneur Richard Braidwood, opened its first US office in California two years ago and the New Jersey office opening is in direct response to the company’s recent success in winning contracts in the United States.

Braidwood is currently providing traffic management advice through its modelling expertise to a number of major traffic infrastructure projects including New York City’s Bronx redevelopment and some of the world’s busiest highways such as Interstates 880 and 450 in California.

Mr Juckes said: “I am joining Braidwood Associates at an exciting time for the business. Our intention is to continue offering cutting-edge traffic modelling and consultancy services to public authorities and private corporations in the United States. There are a number of opportunities to extend our work with state departments on infrastructure projects and President Obama’s recent announcement of a $787 billion economic stimulus package should be beneficial to the sector.”

Richard Braidwood, managing director, Braidwood Associates said: “Matthew has a wealth of experience in microsimulation traffic modelling and he is very well respected in the industry. His expertise is based on providing modelling services for some of the biggest infrastructure projects in the United States and he will be an excellent addition to the Braidwood team. His appointment ensures that Braidwood Associates is well placed to develop the American side of our business.”
