Potts’ career in the transportation construction industry spans more than 40 years. A native of Winston-Salem, NC, Potts is a former chief executive of Heritage Construction & Materials, and former president of Ashland’s APAC, which, at the time, was the largest highway construction contractor in the US.

He also had a distinguished career in public service, serving the Florida Department of Transportation for 16 years as head of its materials and research program and as its director of construction.  Potts is a recognized expert in the field of hot mixed asphalt materials and construction, and is the author or co-author of over 100 technical papers on those subjects.

He is a former chairman of the board of the National Asphalt Pavement Association, former chairman and current board member of the National Center for Asphalt Technology at Auburn University, past president of the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists, past member of the board of the National Sand, Stone and Gravel Association and past chairman of the board for the International Center for Aggregates Research at the University of Texas. He serves his alma mater as a member of The Citadels’ Engineering and Civil Engineering Advisory Councils.

Potts has spent many years advocating the national need for a long-term transportation program that boosts federal investment in highways, bridges and transit systems and that includes a coordinated, long-term strategy to facilitate the safe and efficient movement of goods.
