Malak Bahrami, PE, CPPS, comes to governmental asset management with a solid foundation in Civil Engineering, which gives him a very practical perspective on meeting the needs of multiple stakeholders, including a very unforgiving physical world that impacts parks in Fairfax County, Virginia. With 8 years in consulting before joining Fairfax County five years ago, Mr. Bahrami has meaningful experience, yet is young enough to adopt innovation and invention to solve asset management issues with physical and behavioral science. The ALN has already had the pleasure of learning from Mr. Bahrami about the ways he coordinates disparate stakeholders to establish consensus results on park issues ranging from waterway path construction methods to allocation of financial resources to disadvantaged areas. We look forward to learning more real-world solutions to government asset management issues.
