Randy C. Haddock, a senior lecturer in Old Dominion University's Engineering program, was recently appointed to the state's Board for Contractors by Governor Ralph Northam.

The board awards licenses to businesses involved in "construction, removal, repair or improvement of facilities on property owned by others," according to its website. The board also licenses individuals and firms engaged in "residential building energy analysis, which involves evaluation of energy consumption and recommendations to improve energy efficiency."

Haddock started teaching at ODU in 2000 after he received his BA and MA degrees in civil engineering from the University. He began his career in construction as a project manager and estimator before starting his own residential construction company.
