Don Grantham

Interview Date: Summer 2020

There’s more to Don Grantham than an amazing resume. There’s sincerity and enthusiasm, a warm handshake and a relaxed demeanor. Even on the phone for this interview – as a result of social distancing due to the pandemic – you can hear him smile on the other end of the line.

Mr. Grantham has served nine years on the State Transportation Board representing east central Georgia’s Congressional District 12, including Richmond County and his hometown Augusta. He is a previous transportation board chairman and chairs the Administrative Committee.

Grantham has known every Georgia governor from Jimmy Carter to Brian Kemp. The former lumber company president and CEO served 12 years on the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) and was Augusta/Richmond County commissioner. He serves on the board for the Augusta University Medical College of Georgia Foundation and the Boy Scouts of America Advisory Board of Augusta (44 years running). His recognitions include Leadership Augusta’s 2017 Lester S. Moody Outstanding Citizen Award - their version of a lifetime achievement award, he says. Grantham was also previously named by Georgia Trend as one of the most influential Georgians.
