The 2015 Roy W. Crum Distinguished Service Award will be presented to Dr. Lance A. Neumann, Chairman, Cambridge Systematics. Dr. Neumann is recognized for his more than 40 years of research and implementation activities focused on performance management, asset management, multimodal planning, and data driven investment programming and project selection.
The Crum Award, which will be presented on Wednesday, January 13, 2016, during the Chairman’s Luncheon at the TRB 95th Annual Meeting, recognizes outstanding achievement in the performance of distinguished service; the production of fundamental or developmental research; or the administration, promotion, or fostering of outstanding research that in the judgment of the TRB Executive Committee is worthy of the award. The award was known as the Highway Research Board (HRB) Distinguished Service Award until 1952, when the Executive Committee redesignated it the Roy W. Crum Distinguished Service Award as a memorial to the Board’s director, Roy W. Crum, who served as head of the HRB staff from 1928 until his death in 1951.
