Lisa Kirby’s recent election as Greenville’s City Engineer is a successful promotion following her 17-year career with the City of Greenville.
She has served as senior engineer of the city since 2010, and this new opportunity has opened doors for her not only as a businesswoman but as someone who has future plans to help better Greenville.
Along with a new engineer, the city has added a Department of Engineering, which Kirby will be head of as well.
The department will manage transportation planning, traffic services, stormwater, and asset management, and land development in Greenville.
The creation of this department was decided in an effort to meet priorities and initiatives that are of interest to the City Council.
“Having a person or a team that oversees all capital projects, all the land development, components, and opens up the opportunity for us to be able to communicate that more effectively with the public.”– Lisa Kirby, Greenville Director of Engineering
Kirby is also the first female in Greenville history to be the city’s Director of Engineering. She says she’s thrilled for the opportunity to lead her team, as well as helping develop it from the ground up.
