Vermont Business Magazine has selected Stantec transportation engineer Gregory Goyette, PE, as a member of its 2012 class of “Rising Stars,” a recognition reserved for the state’s most accomplished leaders under the age of 40.
“Greg is undoubtedly a leader in our office and within Vermont’s engineering community,” says Stantec principal Gary Santy. “We couldn’t be more proud of him and this very well-deserved recognition.”
As an associate at Stantec in South Burlington, Goyette has become a key figure in his office’s work on urban and village roadway designs for the Vermont Agency of Transportation and cities and towns throughout the state. He has led several cutting-edge initiatives throughout Vermont, such as incorporating green infrastructure, wind energy, and rainwater storage into the Heritage Flight Aviation Campus expansion in South Burlington.
Goyette has become an extremely well-known face around his community. In 2008, he was named Young Engineer of the Year by Vermont’s engineering associations, served as president of the Vermont Society of Engineers (among other roles), and helped raise scholarship money for Vermont engineering students. He coached youth boys’ lacrosse in Essex for several years and assisted with the team at Rice High School. Putting his professional expertise to work, he was also a member of the South Burlington Recreation Path Committee.
Goyette lives in South Burlington with his wife and two children.
