PROVIDENCE – Wright-Pierce, a water, wastewater and infrastructure engineering firm serving the New England market, has appointed John W. Braccio to succeed William E. Brown as president and CEO effective July 1.

Brown, who has been with the firm for 35 years and served as CEO since 2002, will remain on as the chairman of Wright-Pierce following his retirement to oversee the transition and focus on strategic initiatives, while Braccio will take over the responsibility of overseeing the operations of the company’s seven offices in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine.

Braccio joined Wright-Pierce 30 years ago and most recently held a position as senior vice president in charge of wastewater engineering in southern New England.
