Luncheon with Kathy Griffin, USACE, Pittsburgh District Chief, Operations Division

11:30 AM - 01:00 PM Eastern Standard Time


Topic: Inland Marine Transportation Systems: A Value to the Nation

Kathy is an experienced technical leader with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. She joined the Buffalo District as an intern with the Regulatory program and currently serves as the Pittsburgh District Chief of Operations. Kathy combined her education in Biology and Planning with diverse work experience in the Corps to develop skills in organizational leadership, strategic thinking, program management, collaborative problem solving, and continuous improvement.

Her experience in the Corps Regulatory program established a strong commitment to public service and ability to serve as the “honest broker” balancing the value of economic development and water resource protection. Additional experience managing the operation and maintenance of navigation infrastructure on both the Great Lakes and Inland Marine Transportation System, provided Kathy with unique skill sets that enable her to lead an enterprise approach to asset management. Currently responsible for the operation and maintenance of 23 navigation locks and 16 multi-purpose flood risk management projects, Kathy provides leadership to over 450 team members who support waterborne commerce and protect lives in the upper Ohio River watershed.

With experience in Operations and Maintenance, Regulatory, Emergency Management, Engineering, Construction, Programs, and Project Management, Kathy has a broad knowledge of the Corps Civil Works Programs. In addition to completing two developmental assignments at the Corps Headquarters Office in Washington, D.C., she deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 where she served as the Afghan National Security Forces Program Manager. 

As the U.S. Representative for The World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure (PIANC) remote and automated lock operation working group, Kathy continues to lead continuous improvement of the nation’s waterborne transportation system.
