State engineering groups get new executive director

Kasey Anderson has been named executive director of the American Council of Engineering Companies of Tennessee and the Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers. Anderson has more than 20 years of organizational leadership experience and had previously led the Nashville Academy of Medicine for 11 years.

“We believe that we found exactly who we need in an executive director. Above all else, Kasey is professional — a most important quality for anyone representing ACEC and TSPE,” said Mickey Sullivan, executive vice president at Gresham Smith and Partners and chair of the associations’ selection committee. “She approaches advocacy and consensus building with experience and boundless energy. There is no doubt that we will thrive under her leadership.”

Anderson earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from Vanderbilt University. She is a former member of the executive committee at the Tennessee Society of Association Executives and the current vice chair of the Metropolitan Nashville Action Commission.

“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with the professional engineers in Tennessee. Their commitment to quality and focus on protecting the health, safety and welfare of Tennesseans is inspiring,” said Anderson. “I look forward to the continued growth of ACEC of Tennessee and TSPE and advocating on our members’ behalf at the state and national level.”

Engineering firm rebrands on 25th anniversary

As it marks its 25th year in business, Littlejohn Engineering Associates has changed its name to Littlejohn. The firm has completed more than 6,000 projects in 42 states and now employs more than 125 engineers, landscape architects, planners, surveyors, environmental scientists, industrial hygienists and support personnel at eight offices in Tennessee, Florida, Arizona and Alabama.

“Our new name illustrates our broader reach and expanded services,” said President Jim Littlejohn, pictured. “Just as in planning and engineering, we always try to remember that the simplest solution is usually the best solution. We’re taking the same approach looking ahead with our name and our brand — efficient, understandable, straightforward and collaborative. We want our name to be synonymous with professionalism and quality service delivery.”

Locally, Littlejohn has worked on the Music Row roundabout, Rolling Mill Hill's neighborhood development, in The Gulch and on various infrastructure developments for Metro Nashville and other area governments.
