Wayne Stocks leads the firm’s Mid-Atlantic and South U.S. region, drawing on his more than 25 years of experience in structural design, construction and project management for new buildings and renovations of historic structures. He collaborates closely with private-sector and government clients on both design-build and traditional design-bid-build projects. His diverse portfolio includes educational facilities, hospitals, hotels, long-span structures, national monuments, office and mixed-use buildings, and sports and entertainment venues.

Wayne actively participates in professional organizations such as the Structural Engineers Association of Metropolitan Washington. He serves on the board of governors for the Thornton Tomasetti Foundation and leads its annual scholarship program. Passionate about sharing the excitement of engineering with younger students, he lectures regularly at elementary and middle schools. Wayne’s frequent lectures, presentations and published articles focus on improving building design and construction, with topics ranging from the integration of advanced project delivery and BIM to the power of collaboration.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from North Carolina State University and a master’s degree in structural engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. He lives in Arlington, Virginia, with his wife and three children. Outside of work, he enjoys photography, taking road trips on his Harley-Davidson Softail Deuce and traveling with his family. Prior to joining Thornton Tomasetti in 1992, he served as a Peace Corps volunteer, designing and constructing aquatic farm structures in Nepal.
