Black & Veatch Selects John Murphy to Lead Construction & Procurement Division
John Murphy has been selected to lead Black & Veatch's global construction and procurement operations, the company announced on Sept. 2.
Black & Veatch is a TAUC Governing Member.
"In 2012, the division contributed more than $880 million of the company's total revenue," Black & Veatch said. "The division also has grown 33 percent since 2011 to more than 2,000 professionals. The division has expanded from a focus on power and power delivery projects to work in energy, oil and gas, renewable, water and telecom services. Today, the company also benefits from a global supply chain program that further diversifies the services it offers to clients."
"John was chosen for his strong history of collaboration and leadership across the company. These skills are critical given the scale and complexity of our businesses and operations," added Len Rodman, Chairman, President and CEO for Black & Veatch. "The growing relationship that exists among energy, water and communications markets also adds to the growth opportunities we see for our construction business."
Murphy has more than 27 years of experience and "brings expertise in project management, procurement, operations, construction and electrical design to the role," the company stated. He will work with current division president Hal Smith in a transitional role through the end of this year. Smith will retire at the end of 2013.
