City of Reidsville's New Public Works Director

A North Carolina State graduate with some 10 years of experience as a professional engineer has been named the City of Reidsville’s new Public Works Director.

Joshua S. Beck, who has been working as Associate Director for Housing Facilities at UNC-Greensboro where he oversaw 75 staff members in maintenance, housekeeping, inventory and projects, will head the City’s Public Works Department beginning Monday, April 25. At UNCG, he supervised the operations needed to maintain more than two million square feet of residence halls on campus as well as reviewing and updating the 10-year capital improvement plan for the facilities and overseeing all aspects of construction and renovations for the department.

Also at the university, Beck previously served as the Assistant Director for Facilities and as a Project Engineer in the Housing & Residence Life division. Prior to UNCG, he had been a Project Manager for Davis-Martin-Powell & Associates, Inc. and since 2014, has had his own firm, J.S. Beck Engineering, PLLC. As part of that work, he has worked on everything from short water or sewer extensions to large multi-phased townhome or subdivision projects.

Beck believes his work experience will translate well to the public sector. As Reidsville’s Public Works Director, he will not only oversee the day-to-day operations of that department and its five divisions, but he also will coordinate the City’s Community Development Block Grant projects and other such projects.

“I have 15 years of experience in land development and municipal engineering across the great state of North Carolina,” Beck said. “In addition, my experiences at UNC-Greensboro include managing large annual operating budgets and leading a diverse team of various skillsets to a common goal.”

Beck looks forward to getting to know both his staff and the City so that he can assist in making informed decisions in a timely manner.

“Getting to know and understand all 16 square miles of Reidsville, unfortunately, won’t happen overnight, but I certainly look forward to that challenge at the same time,” he said. “As Public Works Director, I hope to improve the lives of residents through the services we provide.”

Beck earned his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from NC State in 2007. He has been a North Carolina Professional Engineer since 2011.

Reidsville City Manager Summer Woodard and Team Reidsville are glad to have the Public Works position filled by such a qualified candidate.

“We believe that Josh’s credentials, along with his people skills, will be a true asset to the City going forward,” Manager Woodard said. “We have a lot of projects going on that will benefit from his expertise, and we think our employees will enjoy working with him.”

Beck and his wife, Lauren, and their son reside in Kernersville.
