AECOM appoints Katherine Stephens as Chief Operating Officer for its Canada Region

  • AECOM appoints Katherine Stephens as Chief Operating Officer for its Canada Region

About the entity

AECOM became an independent company formed by the merger of five entities. While our official founding was in 1990, many of our predecessor firms had distinguished histories dating back more than 120 years.

AECOM, the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, today announced Katherine Stephens has been named Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of its Canada region, based in its Toronto office. With nearly two decades of service at AECOM, Ms. Stephens will be responsible for driving long-term growth, providing operational leadership, and overseeing strategic insight and hiring for business activities in the region.

“We are thrilled for Katherine to build on her outstanding track record at AECOM and take our business forward as we collaborate with clients across Canada on the country’s largest and most impactful infrastructure projects,” said Richard Barrett, chief executive of AECOM’s Canada region. “Katherine has a demonstrated history of leading high performing teams to continually improve operational efficiency, enhance client satisfaction and manage organizational change while successfully balancing short-term business objectives with long-term growth. Her wealth of experience across our global network is a valuable asset as we continue to accelerate growth through our Think and Act Globally strategy.”

Ms. Stephens first joined AECOM in 2007 and has since held a variety of leadership roles across North America. Most recently Ms. Stephens served as Senior Vice President and Director of Operations for the Company’s U.S. West regional Environment business line, helping implement AECOM’s Sustainable Legacies strategy, and supporting technical teams to bid and deliver on projects that have a lasting impact on communities.

“Over the course of my career, I have been dedicated to fostering a culture of collaboration and innovation on my teams. I’m honored to step into this new role and partner with Richard and the senior leadership team, where we will continue to improve operating performance and remain committed to delivering on clients’ expectations,” said Ms. Stephens. “As a Canadian, I have a deep understanding of the region and look forward to bringing the breadth of my experiences within the global AECOM network to this role.”

Ms. Stephens’ role is effective immediately.
