Gresham, Smith and Partners announces Randy Hulsey has joined the firm as a senior vice president in the Transportation market. Hulsey is a 36-year veteran of the Georgia transportation industry, having served for the last 17 years as the director of the Douglas County Department of Transportation (DOT) where he oversaw administration, operations, planning, financial management, capital programs and policy recommendations for all transportation programs throughout the county. As SVP, Hulsey will lead new business development efforts in the Atlanta region, build on relationships with existing GS&P clients and improve GS&P’s project delivery processes.

“Randy is a true leader in transportation, with a deep understanding of our region’s infrastructure needs and opportunities,” said Kent Black, P.E., executive vice president at Gresham, Smith and Partners. “He is well-known for his dedication to successful planning and operations and his commitment to practical, technology-driven solutions.

“I have a great deal of respect for GS&P, having worked with their engineers and planners for many years, and I’m excited to collaborate with the team now in a different capacity,” commented Hulsey. “As the worlds of transportation engineering and automobile technology converge, we have a unique opportunity to improve safety and quality-of-life through enhanced transportation networks, mobility choices and multi-modal solutions. I believe that a community is a reflection of the infrastructure that supports it, and it’s tremendously important to operate and maintain your systems in the right way. Helping clients achieve those goals is my passion.”
 
Hulsey’s 36 years of experience include transportation agency administration, transportation planning and traffic engineering, with a focus on enhancing programs and projects to benefit clients and communities. Prior to his time as director of the Douglas County DOT, he spent 18 years in various roles with Cobb County, Ga. As a transportation planning engineer, he developed the institutional plan and structure that resulted in the transition of the Public Works department to one of the first local DOTs in Georgia, ultimately creating the Douglas County DOT. As a traffic signal engineer, he managed signal maintenance of more than 400 countywide traffic control devices.
 
Hulsey is an active member of numerous industry organizations such as the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), Intelligent Transportation Society (ITS), Georgia Planning Association (GPA), American Planning Association (APA) and American Society of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO). He has studied at the University of Georgia and Northwestern Traffic Institute, and he obtained public manager certification from the University of Georgia and contract administrator certification from Villanova University. Outside of the office, Hulsey is passionate about helping children with medical issues.
