WRA, Inc. is proud to announce that we are further expanding our geographic reach in the Bay Area with an office in Petaluma. WRA has opened the new office to offer more focused attention to our current and future clients in the North Bay and northernmost counties in the state, while also providing a local workspace for nearly 15 percent of our staff who call Sonoma County home.
“With an established history in the North Bay region, we are excited not only to officially join the Sonoma County business community, but to continue our commitment to valued clients throughout the region,” said WRA President Geoff Smick. “In addition, we are helping our staff foster their passion for local and regional work, and provide a positive impact on the communities where they live and serve.”
WRA’s San Rafael office has served as company headquarters for more than 35 years since the company’s inception in 1981. With more than 700 distinct projects in the North Bay counties (Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Solano) alone, the Petaluma location allows WRA to provide the quality service and responsiveness that clients have come to expect, but in closer proximity to many project sites. WRA’s unique blend of scientific expertise in regional biological knowledge of sensitive plants, wildlife, and vegetation, as well as wetland, streams, and coastal habitats, is complemented by regulatory and environmental review expertise essential to successful project delivery.
WRA has ranked as one of the top environmental firms in the North Bay Business Journal’s Book of Lists since 2015 and is an eight-time “Best Place to Work” as recognized by the Journal’s annual employee survey.
Senior WRA leaders now based in the Petaluma office include Principals Doug Spicher and George Salvaggio; Associate Principal Matt Richmond, and Senior Associate Environmental Planner Geoff Reilly. The Petaluma office also includes experts from our botany and wildlife teams including Aaron Arthur, Jason Yakich, and Rhiannon Korhummel.
