Best of luck, Frank!

After 37 years of dedicated service, Frank Romeo, PE, bid farewell to BETA on December 29th to begin his well-deserved retirement.

A 1974 graduate of Northeastern University, Frank spent the first decade of his career in the local consulting industry as a transportation planner and traffic engineer. He also gained valuable public sector experience, serving as City Traffic Engineer, and later, City Engineer in Warwick, Rhode Island.

Since joining BETA in 1986, Frank has played a pivotal role in the firm’s continued success. Serving as President of BETA from 2000 – 2020 and CEO for several years during that period, Frank’s strategic vision and oversight consistently guided the firm’s growth and positioned us as a leader in the New England region. Part of Frank’s legacy has been paving the way for the next generation of leadership. Having passed the torch to Joseph D’Alesio in 2020 and now the company’s current President, Mark Gershman, he is very optimistic and excited about what the future holds for BETA.

Frank’s illustrious career has included receiving several awards recognizing his many accomplishments, longstanding service, and continued dedication to the profession. Amongst those, he is proud to have received the Freeman Award from the Providence Engineering Society acknowledging his outstanding achievements and contributions to the engineering profession in Rhode Island. Similarly, Frank received the Outstanding Service Award from the University of Rhode Island Transportation Research Center for his continued contributions to the Traffic and Transportation industry.

Please join us in congratulating Frank on his remarkable career and contributions and wishing him well in this new chapter of life.
