Gresham Smith announces that Chairman and CEO Al Pramuk will participate in a panel discussion at the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce’s The Summit on Oct. 25, a one-day deep dive into the current state and future of the region’s manufacturing, financial services and transportation and infrastructure market sectors. Alongside former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary E. Peters, North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary James H. Trogdon III and CRL Associates Managing Partner Roger Sherman, Pramuk will moderate a discussion on the state of transportation and what’s next for Charlotte’s infrastructure.

“I’m grateful to join such highly accomplished industry professionals for this panel discussion on transportation and infrastructure,” commented Pramuk. “We can’t simply pave our way out of congestion. I believe that by developing sustainable solutions for our cities and employing alternative mobility options, we can reduce congestion and create safer, better connected communities.”
