GeoStabilization International (“GSI”) today announced that Pamela Hutton, P.E., has joined its Board of Directors effectively immediately.
Ms. Hutton has had an extensive career at the Colorado Department of Transportation (“CDOT”), where she most recently served as Chief Engineer, leading a staff of 3,000 employees across six transportation regions.
