this change, the current board will remain at nine members, with Tom
Brisbin serving as Chairman of the Board.

“We’d like to thank Win Westfall for over 20 years of service with
Willdan,” said Tom Brisbin, CEO of Willdan. “In that time, he’s made
many great contributions to our company, serving in roles such as
Regional Director, Sr. Vice President of Corporate Relations, President,
and Acting CEO. He has been a source of steady guidance as Chairman of
the Board from 2006 to 2017 and, more recently, as a Board Member. We
are excited to welcome Debra Coy to our Board of Directors. Ms. Coy has
extensive experience with public- and investor-owned utilities and
public policy. Her background as an equity analyst and her many
relationships within the investment community will provide the board
with valuable insight as we execute our growth strategy.”

on behalf of Willdan,” said Tom Brisbin. “In his 22 years with Willdan,
Mr. Whitelaw has demonstrated an ability to grow our company
organically. While Mr. Chen has only been with us for a few months, he
is well known in the industry and has considerable experience in
contract negotiations and dispute resolutions.”
