Jacobs has promoted retired Maj. Gen. Tim Byers to lead the company’s Federal & Environmental Solutions business. This includes support to U.S. government agencies and commercial clients responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.
“We’re honored to have Tim on point working with our clients and leading our team of Federal & Environmental Solutions professionals in these dynamic and challenging times,” said Jacobs President and Chief Operating Officer Bob Pragada.
“His depth of leadership experience and ‘people first, mission always’ ethos is key in helping the government and private sector deliver critical solutions that advance strategic initiatives and support operational and environmental excellence,” he added.
F&ES is a global business delivering mission-driven buildings, infrastructure and environmental solutions to U.S. federal, public sector, private sector and defense contractors. As senior vice president and general manager of F&ES, Byers brings to the role almost four decades of engineering and operations leadership.
He joined Jacobs four years ago to lead F&ES growth and sales after retiring from the U.S. Air Force after 32 years. As the Air Force civil engineer, he led a 54,000-person engineering workforce and managed an $18 billion worldwide facility, infrastructure and real estate portfolio.
