Eldest son of company founder Charles Wilson, Joey began accompanying his father to the office and to job sites at the age of 10. As a teenager, he worked summers and any chance he could at the company until he graduated from Tennessee Tech University with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering in 1996, when he joined the firm full-time. Today, as President, he oversees all aspects of Wilson & Associates’ operations.
Joey earned his professional Registration in Land Surveying (RLS) in 2000 and his Professional Engineering license (PE) in 2002. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Society of Highway Engineers, the Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers, the Tennessee Association of Professional Surveyors and Tennessee Road Builders Association board of governors.
Joey has over fifteen years experience in engineering and computer aided drafting and design. He has reverse engineered more than fifty sets of TDOT roadway and bridge plans for use in establishing project control, rights of way, clearing limits, and to check for errors. In the last five years, he has worked with DOT’s in Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia, and North Carolina to make design changes or improvements to roadway plans that will more efficiently facilitate their construction. Mr. Wilson has also produced three dimensional computer drawings from original and final cross sections to establish final quantities on some twenty TDOT projects and several out of state highway projects.
A father of three children (who can often be found in the W&A offices, following in their dad’s and granddad’s footsteps), Joey is also an active member of Franklin First United Methodist Church, where he has served on the board of trustees, the Visioning Committee for Integrated Church Communities and the Mission Committee. He has participated in several mission trips to Biloxi, Mississippi, to help rebuild the town’s communities after Hurricane Katrina, and he continues to participate in local and regional mission projects.
