Richard McKinney, formerly chief information officer at the U.S. Transportation Department, has joined AECOM’s management services group as vice president of enterprise information technology strategy.
McKinney will oversee the delivery of AECOM’s systems engineering and information platforms and services to clients, the company said Wednesday.
John Vollmer, president of AECOM’s management services group and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2017, said McKinney’s experience and leadership would help the Los Angeles-based engineering firm “continue to both shape and deliver on our clients’ strategic vision for IT transformation.”
