ITHACA, N.Y. — Taitem Engineering, PC — a design engineering and energy-consulting firm based in Ithaca — recently promoted Yossi Bronsnick, a senior engineer and partner, to vice president.
Bronsnick joined Taitem in 2006, became a partner in 2013, and has led the design engineering department for many years, the firm said in a news release. His current responsibilities include decision making and guidance as a partner in the corporation, managing a team of seven engineers, and overseeing about 200 projects annually. He is also completing his own specialized work in design engineering, design review, and green-building consulting services.
“Yossi has made a positive difference in many ways at Taitem and will be a wonderful addition to our management team. He has deep roots in the community, and his interests in building sustainably have always been a part of his work. He has been around building projects in one way or another since he was a toddler,” Taitem Engineering President Lou Vogel said.
When he was a child, Bronsnick would make site visits with his father (a retired construction project manager) to the Cornell University campus, the firm says.
Bronsnick graduated from Cornell with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in civil and environmental engineering in 2005.
“Yossi’s commitment to sustainable buildings is part of his long-standing love for the natural world that is so abundant in his community and his desire to preserve the environment,” Taitem Engineering said in the release.
