Latitude 33, the San Diego-based planning and engineering firm, recently promoted Tara Lake and Giovanni Posillico to partners. The addition of Lake and Posillico as associates expands the firm's leadership to eight executive members.
"We are thrilled to have such talented individuals as Tara and Gio being promoted to partner," said Latitude 33 Senior Principal Engineer John Eardensohn. "Our firm is laden with talented professionals and these two leaders represent the best and the brightest."
Lake's 17 years of private and public sector urban planning experience includes projects in residential, mixed-use and commercial entitlements along with land planning, landscape architecture, public sector planning and mobility planning. Successful in public outreach, she is adept at balancing the widely varied views of a community, developing group consensus, identifying and achieving goals and objectives while coordinating with elected officials and the general public. Lake is a member of Lambda Alpha International and was a 2014 Women Who Mean Business Awards finalist.
Posillico's background includes more than 15 years of experience in civil engineering land development, urban infill, single family and multi-family residential as well as commercial, military and institutional projects. His multidisciplinary approach allows him to excel at balancing a client's vision with project constraints and permitting requirements. Posillico, active in the local building industry, participates in the Urban Land Institute San Diego-Tijuana District Council and the Building Industry Association of San Diego County.
"We are enjoying tremendous growth and as our company continues to grow and expand in terms of personnel and projects, we need more skilled leaders to take over larger roles," said Latitude 33 Senior Principal Randi Coopersmith. "This move comes at the perfect time and we're very proud to call Gio and Tara our partners."
