The Traffic Group
Wes Guckert established The Traffic Group, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business traffic engineering and transportation planning firm in 1985 thanks to the urging and support of his first client, a close friend for more than 38 years.
“I am proud of being able to provide jobs and benefits to so many team members,” he said. “It’s a wonderful feeling. I have learned that no matter what you do or how successful you are, the greatest gift you can receive is giving back to others, paying it forward.”
Guckert has played a key role in about 8,000 projects in the U.S. and internationally during his 40-year career, according to The Traffic Group.
“I try to always be positive, because I have learned how contagious a positive attitude is to clients,” he said.
Guckert is a fellow with the Institute of Transportation Engineers and is a frequent speaker on the topic of driverless cars and their coming impact on urban areas.
He has been a guest lecturer and instructor in the Office of Executive Education at Harvard University’s Advance Management Development Program. The program is for national and international real estate leaders, CEOs, city planners, government officials and others in the building and transportation industries.
The teaching position is among his proudest accomplishments, Guckert said. “I was amazed when I was selected to be an instructor at Harvard. It’s been an unforgettable experience and a great honor.”
