On Monday, May 9, board members of the Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District (GVCID) voted in a specially called meeting to name Marsha Anderson Bomar as the sole finalist for the position of executive director. She was selected as the sole finalist after an extensive search that yielded applications from 49 highly qualified individuals.
Anderson Bomar boasts more than 40 years of experience in the field of civil engineering, planning and community development. That experience includes founding Street Smarts in 1990 and Data Smarts in 1993. Under her leadership those companies grew to employ more than 120 individuals with annual revenues of almost $20 million before being purchased by Stantec, an international consultancy.
Anderson Bomar is an international past president and fellow of the Institute of Transportation Engineers and chaired the Olympic Transportation Task Force Support Group on Goods Movement for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. Other professional affiliations include the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American and Georgia Planning Associations, WTS, the Transportation Research Board, the Council for Quality Growth and the Society of Women Engineers.
Anderson Bomar has also served as a member of the Duluth City Council since first being elected in 2006 and is engaged in numerous civic and philanthropic organizations in Gwinnett, the metro Atlanta region and beyond.
The board of directors will call another special meeting, prior to June 1, to vote on the confirmation of Ms. Anderson Bomar as the new executive director.
