Randy Inklebarger, who has been hired by MS Technology Inc., said he didn’t have to think long about joining the company as its new vice president and business unit manager for engineering projects.
The choice was easy, he said, since his history with the company goes back to when it was founded. That was more than 20 years ago, and he has been impressed with them from the day they launched.
“I worked with them on some projects from the early days of the company,” Inklebarger said, adding that he was working with another local company at the time that had partnered with MSTI. “The decision to go work for them was easy.”
In his new role, Inklebarger is responsible for the diversification and growth of MSTI’s consulting and engineering business. He reports directly to the company’s president and chief executive officer, Kurt Oschman.
“Randy brings tremendous experience and valuable relationships to our team,” Oschman said. “He provides important expertise as we execute MSTI’s long-term business plan.”
Inklebarger was previously the vice president for consulting and design in CH2M HILL’s Government Facilities and Infrastructure Business Unit, or GF&I. He was also a member of the CH2M HILL Enterprise Technology Board, serving as the director for GF&I.
Inklebarger served in a wide array of leadership roles during his 29-year career with CH2M HILL. Highlights include program manager for the Alcoa Bohai Rolling Mill Expansion in the Peoples Republic of China, Southeast regional operations manager for Lockwood Greene Technologies in Atlanta, federal business development manager in Oak Ridge, and project engineer for the Boeing Spares Distribution Center in Seattle.
Inklebarger also served CH2M HILL as the committee chair for the Business Group Diversity and Inclusion Team responsible for advising business group leadership on aligning business group goals with company goals, benchmarking client and industry best practices, and establishing market leadership through a diverse workforce.
Prior to CH2M HILL, he was a field engineer with Chicago Bridge and Iron for two years.
Inklebarger graduated from the University of Tennessee, receiving both his bachelor’s and master’s degree in civil engineering. During his graduate work, he led the hardened concrete research laboratory as a graduate research assistant for Ed Burdette. He is a licensed professional engineer in Tennessee and a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
In 2012, the University of Tennessee Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering selected Inklebarger as their Outstanding Alumnus.
Inklebarger is married to Gina Arico Inklebarger and they have two sons, Christopher and Anthony.
Gina and Randy are active in the Saint John Neumann Catholic Church.
Inklebarger’s recent community support includes advisory board member for the UT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, chair for the 2015 American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure, advisory board member for Knoxville Catholic High School, committee chair for Boy Scout Troop 125, and volunteer work for the University of Tennessee and the Salvation Army.
