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, announced that it has named Jason Colenutt as its Operations Manager for the British Columbia Lower Mainland and Sasha Milovic as its Operations Manager for Calgary. In their new roles, Mr. Colenutt and Mr. Milovic will provide day-to-day business leadership, oversight and direction including staff management, project portfolio and working capital oversight as well as client relationship management for their respective geographies. These appointments signify AECOM’s continued commitment to providing exceptional leadership and expertise in water infrastructure in western Canada.

With an impressive career spanning over 23 years, including 16 years dedicated to civil and municipal infrastructure design, planning and program delivery in Canada and the United Kingdom, Mr. Colenutt brings a wealth of leadership experience to his new position. He began his career in Vancouver as an AECOM project engineer from 2007 to 2011 before progressing to diverse roles in engineering and municipal consulting.  Most recently, he was the City of Surrey’s Manager of Design and Construction, where he successfully oversaw the city’s comprehensive capital program encompassing water, sanitary, storm/drainage, transportation, and district energy infrastructure.

“We’re excited to welcome Jason back to the AECOM family,” said Ian Dyck, senior vice president and Water business line leader in AECOM’s Canada region. “Jason has worked closely with the majority of municipalities in the Lower Mainland and is a well-known and trusted technical expert. He understands today’s water challenges and knows what it takes to successfully deliver on the unique issues facing our local clients.”

Mr. Milovic has over 25 years of experience in operational management, working for organizations at various stages of growth, including start-ups, established business turnarounds, and mergers and acquisitions. Throughout his career, he has been focused on driving operational performance and enhanced service delivery to consistently meet client expectations and create positive outcomes. Prior to joining AECOM, Mr. Milovic held various senior leadership positions at top-tier consulting firms.

“Sasha’s strong operations experience, combined with his solid understanding of local client needs, will enhance our ability to deliver safe, secure, and resilient water infrastructure in the Alberta market,” said Mr. Dyck. “Jason and Sasha both epitomize the operational and managerial standards that clients expect from the AECOM Water team.
