ARLINGTON – Robert Hodgman was recently named the new aviation senior planner for the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).

Hodgman has eight years of experience in capital facilities planning for the Washington Military Department. He was the project manager for the design and construction of a $24 million aviation support center project at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. He has experience with budget and policy development, programming capital projects and knowledge of federal aviation regulations.

“Rob is a wonderful fit for our team,” said Tristan Atkins, WSDOT director of aviation. “He brings a lot of enthusiasm and experience to the position, and has a great work ethic.”

Hodgman served 24 years in the Army and Army National Guard. He has held a commercial pilot rating for more than 20 years, has more than 17 years of aviation operations experience and is rated in UH-1, OH-58 and CH-47 helicopters. He received his master’s degree in business from Saint Martin’s University.

With this new appointment, Hodgman vacates his previous position as WSDOT’s aviation capital improvement project planner. WSDOT anticipates filling that planning position in the near future.
