Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Russell McMurry is Georgia Trend’s 2018 Georgian of the Year.
A 28-year veteran of the Department, who once headed the agency's Gainesville office, McMurry has served as Commissioner of the Department since 2015.
“He is a work horse, not a show horse, someone who prefers to work behind the scenes making things happen,” said Michael “Sully” Sullivan, president and CEO of the American Council of Engineering Companies of Georgia (ACEC Georgia). “It benefits everyone in Georgia to have Russell and his calm, steady, visionary leadership at the head of the department.”
“This is really a recognition of the men and women of GDOT and their ability to get so much done,” McMurry said. “I think of myself as one of the team members trying to make Georgia better every day. I am very proud to be a part of this GDOT team.”
