Cascadia High-Speed Rail Company TM Leadership

Cascadia High-Speed Rail Company TM, under the guidance of our seasoned team, has made significant strides in high-speed rail planning and its ancillary business. Our market-driven approach, coupled with a deep understanding of the pivotal role of passengers, express parcels, and property development, has ensured our financial viability and met the project's capital requirements.

Key team members:

    1. Bradly C. Perkins, President and CEO of Cascadia High-Speed Rail Company
TM, has spent considerable time and resources influencing the direction of the newly designed CHSR corridor and transportation hub locations with local state and national leaders. He is a commercial real estate broker and has owned and operated Perkins Realty, a commercial real estate broker, and operated Perkins Realty, a commercial real estate company, since 2004. He has amassed multiple properties for development, such as the Hollywood Library, New Seasons Headquarters, and Madorna Studios in Portland. Born in Portland, Perkins graduated from the University of Oregon in 1975 with a B.A. in architecture and has facilitated the relocation of dozens of historic properties. He has led land use planning and development of environmentally progressive transportation projects that inspire livable communities.

  2. Rudy Niederer is CHSR Companie's technical corridor planner who has completed the concept plan for the electrified Cascadia High-Speed Rail corridor system between Eugene, OR, and Vancouver, BC. Niederer has designed the 413-mile corridor to avoid all grade crossings and effectively connect CHSR with all other transportation systems at the station stops. In 1996, Niederer designed the light-rail concept plan for Honolulu, HI, known as Honolulu Area Rapid Transit (HART). From 1972 to 1990, he worked as a crew supervisor for Custodis Cottrell Company, headquartered in Chicago, IL, traveling throughout the US to troubleshoot, construct, and rehabilitate massive industrial chimneys. Born and educated in Switzerland, Niederer continues innovating and designing solutions to complicated engineering and construction projects that are environmentally focused. 

  3. Dr. Alex Metcalf has been president of TEMS since 1989. He began his career in research at the Royal Institute of Public Administration in London, England. He became an economic advisor to the European Community for transportation policy and planning studies. He was Chairman of the European Freight Study and a member of the Technical Advisory Committee for the European Passenger Study. He was appointed Chief Economist at British Rail and London Transport and, upon privatization, Managing Director of Transecon International. Over his career, he has carried out central high-speed rail policy and planning strategies for British Rail, SNCF, JNR, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, Transport Canada, and USDOT.   

  4. Ancrom Moisan Architects creates places where people and communities thrive, emphasizing heightening livability in the urban environment. Much of their work is mixed-use, mid and high-rise residential projects with street-level retail. They understand that public transport, like the Portland Street Car, is a vibrant combination of uses and density. They work closely with clients to foster accessible bus and rail access whenever possible. International connections with architects, educators, planners, developers, and senior living entities in China, England, Mexico, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Denmark, and Germany make sense. Their success includes the design of North American headquarters for both Vestas and Daimler corporation. They are enthusiastically supportive of the Cascadia High-Speed Rail initiative. They see the benefits, sustainability, urban revitalization, and connectivity that CHSR can bring to people and places.
