Randy Graham Retires from Nexus Engineering Group

Randy joined Nexus in 2011 when the company had 30 employees, a Home Office staff of three (consisting of Randy, Neal Curran, and Karen Pahner), and one major client (BPH).

Initially, Randy’s focus was on finding and developing new clients, including Husky Lima Refinery, MarkWest, Vadxx, and Toledo Refining Company.

When Nexus developed a multi-discipline engineering staff in Cleveland, Randy’s role transitioned into working with Deltek to manage projects, and to develop the project management controls and tracking systems that are now in place. As the company continued to grow, along with the growing need for additional resources, Randy also took on the responsibility for identifying and recruiting new talent for Nexus.

“I have very much enjoyed my time spent at Nexus and am very excited about the future of the company. I will be anxious to watch the company continue to grow in the years to come.”

Earlier in his career, Randy began his engineering career alongside Jeff Herzog, while they worked together as instrument engineers on a project at the Sohio Refinery, which is now Husky Energy’s Lima Refining Company. Randy rapidly progressed through Sohio Refinery, and then through BP, taking on various management roles during those years. He then moved on to senior leadership roles at Travel Centers of America, helping them double their size and expand their market reach over the course of a twelve-year period.

“Working with Jeff had been both enjoyable and an incredible opportunity from earlier in my career and now through retirement.”

During his retirement, Randy plans to dedicate more time to helping others. He currently serves on the boards of two non-profit organizations: “Solutions at Work,” which is dedicated to helping people who have developmental disabilities, and “Building Hope in the City,” a non-profit dedicated to restoring Cleveland to God by developing and linking people, communities, and churches. Randy is also very involved with “Care for Aids,” a non-profit organization dedicated to helping those affected by HIV learn how to manage their disease through an innovative model of care that engages local leaders, churches, and communities in caring for families affected by HIV and AIDS.

Randy also plans to spend more time golfing, traveling, and being with his family that now includes four grandchildren.
