Amanda Allred has over 26 years of experience as a Professional Land Surveyor (PLS), and currently serves as a Geomatics Department Manager. Based out of the Salt Lake City office, Amanda brings an exceptional track record of accomplishments and leadership.

Having served as the President of the National Society of Professional Land Surveyors (NSPS) in 2022, Amanda has effectively shaped the industry’s direction and fostered professional collaboration. As a Commission 7 Representative for the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), she works to steer her profession globally. She is licensed in seven states, including Alaska, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, and Nevada. She previously served as the District Land Surveyor for the Walla Walla District of the US Army Corps of Engineers, worked for the Alaska Department of Transportation, and owned and operated her own firm in New Mexico.

As the Geomatics Department Manager, Amanda helps implement tactical plans to drive operational and financial performance, organize and support program management teams, lead opportunity pursuits, and mentor SAM team members. Her experience coordinating large-scale projects in multiple markets, managing technical and professional staff, and providing expert testimony will enables SAM to tackle even the most complex challenges confidently and precisely. Her contributions to the field have earned her prestigious accolades such as a “Top 40 Under 40 Remarkable Geospatial Professionals” in 2016, as well as her selection as a representative to the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG). She is an alumna of both New Mexico State University and the University of Alaska and will continue her passion for supporting higher education in our geospatial community.

Amanda’s favorite core value is integrity. Doing the right thing regardless of whether anyone knows is a principle that was ingrained in her from childhood onward. The people she been able to meet and work with at SAM exemplify this value and always strive to be honest in both their personal and professional lives. Further, it also means delivering the best quality products on time and passing on opportunities when you know you cannot deliver.
