Garver congratulates Bert Parker on 40 years
Bert Parker has always been an integral part of Garver’s continued growth, and today we would like to congratulate Bert on his 40th anniversary with the company!
Currently serving as chief administrative officer, Parker, who joined Garver in 1978, has also served as director of transportation and spent his earliest years on the Bridge and Aviation teams. Over four decades, Parker has helped Garver take on new services, expand into new markets, and in 2017 became just the fifth engineer from Arkansas to be accepted into the ACEC College of Fellows, a distinguished class of engineers selected by their peers for their contributions to the profession.
He has provided oversight and improvements to the expansion of the federal interstate system along with state and local highway projects and, perhaps his largest contribution, served as project manager for the I-540 and Bobby Hopper Tunnel project, the state’s first highway tunnel.
“We’ve been able to thrive as a company because we’ve always had employees with the utmost dedication to us and the profession,” said Garver President and CEO Dan Williams. “I’ve learned a lot from Bert over the years, and I know a lot of others at Garver have, too. Congratulations on 40 years!”
