AECOM has announced that Paul Praylo has been named Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Construction Services (CS), a global construction division that grew from under $2B to nearly $7B in revenue in just five years.

In this elevated position, Mr. Praylo will oversee operations across all business units within CS, playing an active role in several initiatives including operational excellence, strong project performance and comprehensive risk management and safety efforts.

"Since Construction Services was established in 2011, Paul has been the backbone of our leadership team and instrumental to the group's expansion," said CS Group President Dan McQuade. "In his new role, Paul will be an important partner in ensuring operational excellence across business units as we continue our international expansion and focus on integrated delivery."

"I am very proud to be part of a team that has achieved tremendous growth in a short period of time," said Mr. Praylo, "We have wide ranging delivery capabilities that operate on a global platform. Between our power, civil infrastructure, building construction and oil and gas operating groups we have a remarkable foundation to build on, as the need for infrastructure rises."

AECOM is well-positioned to meet increased demand for infrastructure development globally, having established a full-service construction business with a strong presence in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and growing capabilities in the Asia Pacific region.

A well-respected leader across the company for over 15 years, Mr. Praylo most recently led finance and administration for CS. Before AECOM, he held leadership roles at Deloitte Consulting, servicing Fortune 100 clients. He earned an Accounting B.B.A. from Siena College and an M.B.A. in Finance & Information Systems from New York University.
