KCI is pleased to announce the promotion of Regional Practice Leader Randy Prescott, PE, to vice president. Working out of the Tampa office, he is charged with growing the construction management practice throughout the state while expanding the firm into new markets and services throughout the southeast.
With more than two decades of experience, Prescott’s career has centered on transportation and public works engineering, construction management and maintenance operations. Prior to joining KCI, he served over a decade with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) in increasing roles of responsibility—from operations engineer to Director of Operations for District 1. After retiring from state government in 2016, he joined KCI as a construction management practice leader and was promoted to regional practice leader this past February. Over the last three years, Prescott has made a major impact on many of the firm’s notable construction oversight projects, including FDOT State Route 52, Citrus Park Drive Extension, the SunTrax Test Facility, as well as on-call contracts with Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties, the city of Tampa and FDOT District 7.
Randy’s technical expertise, excellent business development and marketing skills, and effective project management have been an invaluable asset to KCI. He was that catalyst that launched our Florida construction engineering and inspection rebound and has since extended the ongoing growth period, which has allowed us to add staff and serve new geographies.
