The State Building Commission's Executive Subcommittee has selected Robert E. Oglesby from a field of 64 candidates to serve as Tennessee’s state architect.
Oglesby replaces the retired Mike Fitts. Last June, the commission appointed Alan Robertson acting state architect.
A licensed Tennessee architect for more than 25 years, Oglesby served as president and principal-level designer for EOA Architects in Nashville and, more recently, as the executive vice president of Wiser Company in Murfreesboro. He received his bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Tennessee.
“I welcome this opportunity and look forward to working with the design and construction community across the state,” Oglesby said in a release.
The state architect serves as the curator of the Tennessee State Capitol and grounds, oversees the state’s building and land development projects, and develops design standards for agencies.
