Rashed Islam has accepted a new role as HDR’s Central Region transportation director. The region stretches from Canada to Mexico and spans the U.S. from Indiana to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
As regional director, Islam will help coordinate HDR’s transportation work, involving highways and roads, aviation, port and maritime, freight rail, and federal transport. He will be responsible for strategic leadership, business development, and management of key initiatives as well as development of staff. He will also assist clients in overall program delivery, adapting to new technology, advise them on preparing for the future, and help shepherd community-changing projects from idea to reality.
With 27 years of industry experience, Islam’s leadership has been evident in the hundreds of projects he has completed in his career for many public and private clients, including the first continuous flow intersection in central Texas and his 20-year involvement in the 712-acre Robert Mueller Municipal Airport Redevelopment project.
