The Board of Directors of England-Thims & Miller, Inc. (ETM) announced the appointment of two leaders to new Executive Vice President roles, positioning the infrastructure and development consulting firm for continued growth. Buckley K. Williams, CCCA, is now the EVP of Public Infrastructure, and George Miller, PE, has been promoted to the role of EVP of the firm’s Construction Engineering & Inspection (CEI) division.
Williams is ETM’s first EVP of Public Infrastructure; the role was created to lead and align the entire firm’s services with public sector partners across the state of Florida. He joined the firm in 1993 to establish the CEI division, which grew to over 60 team members under his leadership for nearly 30 years. Williams earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management from the University of Florida and is active in American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE), American Public Works Association (APWA), FDOT Construction Career Day Events, Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Florida Transportation Builders Association (FTBA).
“I could not be more excited for this opportunity to serve. Our clients and partners receive the most value from ETM when we bring the collective knowledge from our 300 team members. This new role provides an opportunity to maximize our service to public sector agencies across the state of Florida,” said Williams.
In alignment with Williams’ acceptance of his new role, ETM has promoted George Miller, PE, to the position of EVP of CEI. Miller came to ETM as a Senior Project Engineer in January of 2022, following nearly two decades of progressive CEI leadership experience within the state of Florida. During his career, he has completed and led more than $1 billion in complex roadway, bridge and aviation projects across the Southeast. He holds a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering degree from Michigan Technological University. In addition to his leadership role at ETM, he is active in the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE), FDOT Construction Career Day Events, Southern Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (SASHTO) and Florida Transportation Builders Association (FTBA).
“Since joining ETM, I’ve enjoyed learning how the company’s openness, expertise and team spirit sets our team apart in the industry. I truly appreciate the trust placed in me to lead. I look forward to working with a great team to grow our CEI practice and provide significant career opportunities for our team members in 2023 and beyond,” said Miller.
These strategic appointments reflect ETM’s commitment to growing with accomplished professionals throughout their careers. Together, Williams and Miller will support the firm’s success across numerous public sector service lines, including CEI, traffic and transportation, planning, utilities, program management, surveying, subsurface utility engineering (SUE) and geospatial technologies (GST).
“Buckley and George embody our commitment to living our calling of being ‘Trusted Advisors, Creating Community.’ Our culture recognizes and rewards leaders who deliver exceptional results for our clients,” said Tyler Mathews, President of ETM. “We are grateful to Buckley for building and growing our CEI division throughout his entire 30-year career at ETM, and congratulate him on his new role across our broader public infrastructure team. While George is newer to our firm, he has proven himself as an innovative leader worthy of our partners’ trust. I look forward to seeing enhanced success for our clients and our colleagues under both of their leadership.”
