John Payne, PE
Vice President – Natural Gas
Board Member

John launched his career in 2001 at Keck & Wood. In addition to his Associate VP title, John serves as Senior Project Engineer in the firm’s Public Utilities Division, where project types include utility design and replacement, as well as utility relocations necessitated by Georgia DOT road improvement projects.

A major challenge of relocation projects, in particular, is resolving utility requirements with often-conflicting roadway requirements. To this end, team members and project partners – and the project itself – benefit from John’s keen attention to detail and easy-going nature.

Outside of work, John enjoys gardening, hunting, fishing, and spending time with his kids.
