Senior Principal

Abhijit Shah has led Walter P Moore’s office in Pune, India since 2011. With a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Pune, Abhijit earned his Master of Science in Civil Engineering from Clemson University.

In 2011, he returned to his native Pune to establish a permanent office for Walter P Moore. Under his energetic leadership, this office has grown to over 50 professionals in three disciplines. Clients in both India and the U.S. appreciate Abhijit’s ability to bridge the cultural differences between the countries. He has imbued a strong service ethic and team culture in his team in Pune, helping that team become an integral component of Walter P Moore’s overall global services capabilities. 

Why did you choose Walter P Moore?
Always been a (wannabe) sportsman and a sports fan…cricket, football, everything in between. WPM gave me a chance to combine my passions of sports and engineering — if I’m not good enough to be on the field, then maybe I should help build it. I followed Vicki Ford form Clemson to WPM and was attracted by the stadium projects, but stayed for the great team!
