Jacobs has unveiled a new boss to lead its European utilities business as part of a restructure following its acquisition of rival CH2M.
Bryan Harvey, a former CH2M executive, has taken the newly-created role following Jacobs’ $3bn (£2.21bn) swoop for its US rival last year.
Mr Harvey was previously responsible for global strategy and sales at CH2M, having spent five years at the Colorado-based firm.
Earlier this month, CH2M executive Mark Southwell made the switch to Jacobs to lead its European rail and geotechnical team.
In April, CN revealed that two former CH2M directors had been poached by rival firms following its takeover by Jacobs.
Mr Harvey, who will be based in London, will be charged with overseeing Jacobs’ water and energy clients in the UK and Europe.
He will report to Jacobs Buildings and Infrastructure Europe senior vice-president and general manager Donald Morrison.
Dallas-based Jacobs last week reported flat net profit in Q2 of $48.6m (£36m), which it blamed in part on “CH2M acquisition-related charges”.
Last month its joint venture with Mace was picked as the UK government’s delivery partner for Britain’s pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.
