Congratulations to Dr. Lance Neumann, Recipient of the 2015 TRB Roy W. Crum Award

Join us in congratulating Dr. Lance A. Neumann, Chairman of the Board and former President/Chief Executive Officer of Cambridge Systematics, Inc., for being selected to receive the  2015 Roy W. Crum Award from the Transportation Research Board at its upcoming annual meeting in January, 2016.  The Crum Award, established originally as the Distinguished Service Award and renamed in 1952 to commemorate the former Head of Highway Research Board Staff, Roy W. Crum, “recognizes outstanding achievement in the performance of distinguished service; the production of fundamental or developmental research; or the administration, promotion, or fostering of outstanding research.” Lance is being recognized for his more than 40 years of research and implementation activities focused on performance management, asset management, multimodal planning, and data driven investment programming and project selection.

Lance joined Cambridge Systematics in 1975, three years after its founding, and helped to grow and shape the firm into what it is today.  Under his leadership, Cambridge Systematics grew from a small firm serving a small number of clients, to an internationally recognized leader in transportation, with more than 300 employees and 11 offices. His vision, high standards, and leadership set the tone for the organization as it grew in size and reputation, and he helped to develop many of the firm’s current leaders.  Lance continues to contribute to Cambridge Systematics and the transportation sector in his role as Chairman of the Board and in the numerous organizations of which he is a member, including Transportation Research Board.

We congratulate Lance on this well-deserved honor.
