With broad finance-related management consulting services, Nathan Macek, AICP, has joined HDR as infrastructure finance director. 

“I’m looking forward to helping clients solve funding and financing challenges for their programs, so they can design and build the infrastructure projects in their pipeline,” Macek said . “We aim to be involved in providing strategic support early in the project delivery life cycle but can also help clients looking to sustain existing assets.”

In his new role, Macek will advise HDR’s global clients on funding and financing strategy for infrastructure development and operations. Services include financial feasibility assessment, financial planning and cash flow analysis, funding analysis, funding and grant strategy development, long-range financial planning, New/Small Starts and Core Capacity planning, privatization studies, public-private partnership strategy development, real estate economics, pricing analysis and tolling finance, and value capture analysis among others. 

Macek has more than 20 years of experience applying innovative approaches to budgetary challenges faced by public agencies. He has developed financial models to evaluate funding, alternative project delivery and financing for rail, transit and highway projects in the U.S., Europe, Caribbean and Middle East as well as performed cash flow modeling and uncertainty analysis of capital and operating funds for over two dozen transportation agencies. He also contributes to advancements in the industry as an author of multiple papers focused on transportation finance and policy topics.

“Helping our clients identify the means to design, construct, operate and maintain transportation, water, utilities and other infrastructure assets has a real-world impact on our client’s customers, who depend on their infrastructure to meet their daily needs,” said Transportation Operational Resiliency Director Janet González Tudor. “Nathan’s leadership in this space will be critical to successfully navigating policy and funding challenges our clients face when creating sustainable solutions for their most complex projects.”
