Randy Redmond becomes firm’s ninth SVP, leads Texas Region
CEO Jerry Stump announces Redmond as senior vice president over Texas, strengthening the firm’s commitment to serve the entire state.
Effective October 6, Randy Redmond, PE, has been promoted from vice president to senior vice president overseeing Volkert’s Texas operations. Redmond started at Volkert in 2016 as vice president and has grown the region to serve TxDOT, one of the nation’s largest departments of transportation in terms of both area and budget.
“Volkert began serving the state in 2015 as a corporate initiative,” says David Allsbrook, the firm’s chief operating officer. “We knew immediately that we were going to need the right leader to make this initiative successful, and Randy has proven himself to be that leader. He came to Volkert with over 25 years at TxDOT. His experience managing projects of every type, from municipal to metropolitan, as well as his network of relationships has helped us firmly establish our business in Texas.”
Redmond started working summers at TxDOT as an inspector. Following graduation in 1989, Randy started full-time and quickly moved up through the ranks of inspector, designer, Assistant Area Engineer and Area Engineer. In 2003 he was promoted to Director of Transportation Planning and Development for the Tyler district, and in 2008 he became District Engineer for TxDOT in Beaumont. In 2011 Redmond accepted the position of Director of DFW’s Strategic Projects Office, where he supported the Dallas and Fort Worth Districts with the procurement and implementation of Design-Build and P3 projects. Notable projects include the DFW Connector, the North Tarrant Express, the LBJ Express, 35Express, and Midtown Express.
“Serving Texas is critical to our continued growth as a firm,” comments Jerry Stump, president and CEO. “That’s why we are streamlining our operations to serve the state as a single region. We now have the right leadership in place and are continually attracting the right talent to ensure long-term success serving clients across the state.”
