With a rich history that dates back to 2006, RS&H has recognized the accomplishments of a Transportation-Infrastructure associate with the Harold V. Aiken Quality Award, which is a direct tribute to the exceptional loyalty and performance of our long-time colleague, Harold Aiken, who dedicated 58 years to our company and devoted much of his time and energy to building a positive, professional image through his outstanding work ethic.
This year, five exceptional candidates were nominated for this prestigious award. And the recipient is Keith Brockman of our Orlando office – congratulations!
With more than 17 years with RS&H, Keith has shown an exceptional commitment to quality and professional services on all the projects that he has been involved in, but perhaps the best example of this has been during the I-4 Ultimate P3 contract for one of our benchmark clients, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 5.
With a focus on meeting our client’s high expectations and a very tight timeframe, Keith continues to provide excellent client service and has delivered on every aspect of the procurement contract by successfully managing and directing staff efforts, as well as other team members. Each P3 project process involves a team of experts for a successful delivery, but there is always one person who works with the client, listens to their requests, desires and needs, and then coordinates the delivery of the project – doing whatever it takes in the way of time and efforts to make tight deadlines or to make adjustments based on last minute decisions. Keith has been that person for the I-4 Ultimate P3 contract and always finds a way to deliver for our client without compromising quality.
“I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Keith over the years and have witnessed first-hand how his leadership, steadfast commitment to developing others professionally, and dedication to quality on every job has shaped his future here at RS&H,” said Senior Vice President and Practice Director Jim Hullett.
One of Keith’s colleagues, Abhijeet Desai, describes Keith as “one of the hardest working people I know and have found him to be hands-on, yet never micro-managing the I-4 Ultimate P3 project. He has greatly influenced me over the last decade at RS&H by his work ethic and has set an example on how to adapt to a variety of technical and non-technical demands of our industry, and how to use those challenges as a means to grow professionally.”
Keith joins a distinguished list of past recipients: Chris Jackson (2014), Radha Swayampakala (2013), Ben Lehr (2012), Ron Kline (2010), Jesse Forst (2009), Doug Green (2008), Bev Davis (2007), and Dick Wallace (2006).
