Congratulations to DKS’ own Randy McCourt who was elected as the 2019 Institute of Transportation Engineers International Vice President.

Randy’s campaign promise is “To enhance the ITE member experience through networking, partnerships, and technical expertise.” He joined ITE in 1976 and has served at the International, District, and Section levels of ITE. Randy’s role as ITE Vice President will focus on expanding member knowledge, expertise, and technical products in emerging transportation areas of safety, technology, smarter mobility, and relationships of transportation with health and equity.

Randy had the following to say on his appointment, “The transportation industry is in a great transformation due to technology. It is unlike anything dating back to the advent of the interstate programs. This is a tremendous opportunity to lead the transportation engineering industry and our members into and through this transition over the next four years.” For more information, visit
