Meet Some of Our Team

We have a lot of really talented people that truly want to help you become the best and brightest engineer possible. While being a very talented bunch, we also have quite the group that enjoys a variety of activities with one another, whether it be the company softball team or PE celebration happy hour. West Yost tends to have fun yet also very smart people working here.

Associate Engineer I


I was the first engineer Bruce and Jim hired when they started the firm in 1990. It is exciting to see the company flourish as we continue a successful transition from Bruce and Jim’s original partnership to the firm we know and love today…much larger now, yet still a place where individuals have a huge impact on who we are and where we’re going.

Jeff Pelz, PE

Vice President 


My two-year career at West Yost has exceeded all expectations I had prior to my hire. I cannot convey the feeling of comradery and accomplishment working with a team of water-focused engineers who share similar passions.  At West Yost, we do not work “for a firm” we work together as a team. That feeling of comradery was conveyed to me starting day one when I met the President of West Yost, Charles Duncan. Charles knew my name; he knew my story; he gave me a hand-written welcome card.

Have I mentioned that small firms work on cool projects? Check out the Washington Park Reservoir Project or the City of Davis’ East Area Tank Project which was awarded Project of the Year by the Sacramento Chapter of the American Public Works Association.
