Parsons Corp. has promoted Jon Moretta to president of the engineered systems business unit, effective immediately.
Moretta joined Parsons in 2016 and served most recently as the industrial market leader in the company’s critical infrastructure business segment.
“Jon is a proven performer in driving organic growth and leading the company’s environmental sustainability practices,” said Carey Smith, president and CEO of Parsons.
Under Moretta’s leadership, Parsons’ industrial business managed the world’s largest mine closure and reclamation projects at the Giant Mine in Northwest Territories, Canada, and Faro Mine in Yukon Territory, Canada, along with environmental remediation programs around the world.
“Under his leadership, Parsons has thrived in diverse markets by deploying creative solutions and innovative technologies for customers in utilities, mining, water and wastewater, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, and within state and federal government organizations,” Smith said. “His technical depth and experience in leading complex programs and organizations will guide our engineered systems team to continued success as we help our customers create the future.”
Moretta replaces Chris Alexander, who announced his intent to retire earlier this month. Alexander served most recently as president of Parsons’ engineered systems business unit.
