Growing in the Southeast

Toole Design Group is significantly expanding our presence in the Southeastern United States this summer. “After five years of consistent growth and successful project work across the region, we are establishing an office in Atlanta and expanding our presence into North Carolina,” according to Ernie Boughman, AICP, Director of Operations for the Southeastern U.S. “This will enable us to better serve our growing list of clients across the Southeast who are investing in safer, healthier transportation networks and communities.”

Addie Weber, AICP joined the firm last year, and has now been named Atlanta Office Director. A gifted planner and urban designer with over 17 years of experience in land use and transportation, Addie’s unique perspective has helped her deliver outcomes that make places more walkable, bikeable, and functional for all users. “Addie has made an immediate impact leading projects and responding to client needs in the Atlanta area, as well as serving as a national design expert with our Urban Design Group,” said Boughman.
