Todd Long, PE, PTOE ~ COO

Todd Long joined Moreland Altobelli Associates/An Atlas Company (MA) in 2018 as Chief Operating Officer. He has 28 years of experience in government services with focused experience in planning, engineering, operations and administration for large governmental organizations and has served in leadership roles for most of his career. Prior to joining MA, Long served as Chief Operating Officer for Fulton County from 2015 to 2018. He led the day-to-day activities of the County’s customer-facing departments.

Long had a substantive career in transportation before retiring in 2015 from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) as Deputy Commissioner. He served in several key positions including the state’s first Director of Planning, a position created by Senate Bill 200 and passed by the Georgia Legislature in 2009. He was appointed by Governor Perdue and re-appointed by Governor Deal after confirmation by the House and Senate Transportation Committees. As Deputy Commissioner, he led the extensive coordination effort with county and city officials in Georgia’s 12 designated regions and created each region’s transportation project list in accordance with the Transportation Improvement Act (TIA). TIA allowed each of the12 regions to offer a referendum for a 1% Transportation Sales Tax. Three regions in the state (46 counties) passed the 10-year sales tax in 2012. In addition, working with 535 cites and 159 counties, Long revamped and successfully executed the rollout of the Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant Program (LMIG) program.

In his nearly three years at Fulton County, he successfully led the effort to create legislation for a single county sales tax for Fulton County with special conditions for a separate vote in the City of Atlanta. The referendum passed in 2016 -- a tax that will raise nearly $575 million in Fulton County and nearly $300 million in City of Atlanta over the next 5 years.

Long has a Master’s in Civil Engineering from Georgia Tech, is a registered Professional Engineer and an adjunct professor at his alma mater.
