Walter P Moore Announces Dallas Leadership Transitions

International engineering firm Walter P Moore announces that David A. Platten, P.E., Managing Director of the firm’s Dallas office, will retire on March 30, 2018. Vicki Ford, P.E., S.E. will assume the managing directorship and office leadership in his stead.

Principal Vicki Ford, a structural engineer at Walter P Moore since 1998, is transitioning as the new Managing Director of the firm’s Dallas office and structural engineering practice. A graduate of Clemson University, Vicki quickly excelled within the firm and the industry, earning Walter P Moore’s distinguished Javier F. Horvilleur Outstanding Young Engineer Award in 2005 and garnering a spot on Building Design & Construction’s ‘Top 40 Under 40’ in 2008. Vicki has led the firm’s efforts on a variety of important projects such as the new William P. Clements, Jr. University Hospital at UT Southwestern Medical Center, the Garland Special Events Center, the San Antonio Military Medical Center, and two prominent structures at the STAR Complex in Frisco — the Cowboys World Headquarters and the Omni Frisco Hotel. Her structural design of the Texas Center for Proton Therapy, a highly sophisticated and critical treatment center for cancer care in North Texas, achieved the highest honor for engineering excellence in the state — the Eminent Conceptor Award by ACEC-Texas — distinguishing it as Texas’s top project in 2017.

Said Choudhuri, “Vicki has established herself as an award-winning structural engineer, client champion, and talented leader. She will help us continue our growth and success in north Texas.”
