Greg Driver Honored with Order of the Long Leaf Pine Award
Congratulations to Gregory A. Driver, PE who was recently honored with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine Award. Since 1963, North Carolina’s governors have reserved this award, which is their highest honor, for those who have made significant contributions to the state and their communities through their exemplary service and exceptional accomplishments. People named to The Order become North Carolina “Ambassadors” with their names and award dates recorded on a Roster maintained by The Order of the Long Leaf Pine Society.
Before joining Muter Construction, Greg served the citizens of North Carolina for more than 30 years. He worked with the NC Department of Administration’s State Construction Office for 23 years, serving as the Director from 2006 to 2015. After leaving the State Construction Office, Greg served as the University Engineer and Executive Director of Engineering and Construction for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill until his retirement from public service in 2021. He delivered landmark projects across the state, from the state capitol to the mountains to the coast.
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that Greg is not the only member of the Driver Family to have been awarded this prestigious honor! Apparently, the Driver Family is full of dedicated public servants with a heart for North Carolina. Greg’s sister, Teresa Creech and brother-in-law, Sherwood Creech, were also honored with awards this past year and his mother, Betty, is an award winner as well.
We are so proud of Greg and all that he has accomplished throughout his career and the way that he has served the people of our state so well. We couldn’t have asked for a better leader for our state’s building programs than Greg who led with kindness, grace and integrity every day.
Grateful to work alongside Greg every day!
