Sid Fuchs, CEO and President of MacAulay-Brown (MacB), was named to the Louisiana State University (LSU) College of Engineering Hall of Distinction. Fuchs will be formally inducted at the Hall of Distinction ceremony on April 26 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Fuchs was chosen based on his distinguished professional achievement, dedication to the engineering community, public service and leadership.
“On behalf of the entire MacB family, it is indeed a great privilege to congratulate Sid on this honor,” said Syd Martin, Vice Chairman of the Board of MacB. “Being inducted into the LSU College of Engineering Hall of Distinction is a well deserved acknowledgement of Sid’s significant career accomplishments as well as his dedication and service to his family, colleagues, profession and country.”
With a distinguished career beginning with the Central Intelligence Agency, Fuchs has spent the last 20 years playing a pivotal role in business and government. After graduating from the CIA’s Special Operations and Career Training School, he held positions as an operations officer, systems engineer, program manager and foreign weapons systems intelligence analyst. He also holds federal appointments by the Secretary of Defense to the National Defense University Board of Visitors and the Defense Science Board’s Intelligence Task Force.
That knowledge and experience has carried over to Fuchs roles in the engineering services industry. Through CEO appointments at organizations such as MacB, OAO Technology Solutions and TASC, he has been at the forefront of leading organizations that design and deliver mission critical engineering and technical solutions that directly support the Nation’s global security efforts.
As CEO of MacB, he has led the premiere engineering and technical services company supporting the DoD and intelligence community with over 2,000 employees worldwide.
Fuchs will join a distinguished list of other prominent honorees including the current Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Economic Development, Stephen Moret; former Louisiana State Representative, William Daniel; former President and CEO of Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO); and distinguished NASA veteran, manned space flight pioneer, and chief designer of the Mercury space capsule, Dr. Maxime Faget.
Rick Koubek, Dean, LSU College of Engineering stated, “The College of Engineering is honored to recognize Sid Fuchs as a stellar engineering alumnus for our 31st annual Hall of Distinction. Sid has enacted strong leadership through transformative roles in his profession, and impressive contributions to society. His global experience represents the true significance of the LSU Engineer.”
