AECOM names W. Troy Rudd as new chief financial officer

AECOM 112AECOM, a Los Angeles, CA-based premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, today announced the appointment of W. Troy Rudd as executive vice president and chief financial officer, effective Oct. 5.

Rudd, a senior vice president concurrently serving as treasurer; chief operating officer, Design Consulting Services (DCS) Americas; and chief financial officer, DCS Global, assumes the CFO role held by AECOM President Stephen Kadenacy, who has served as CFO since 2011. As president, Kadenacy will take on a broader operational responsibility across the organization, while continuing to be responsible for a wide range of critical corporate functions.

Holding a series of financial leadership roles since joining AECOM in 2009, including responsibility for AECOM’s treasury, corporate controllership and financial reporting, risk and controls, tax and shared services functions, Rudd has been instrumental in advancing AECOM’s growth initiatives. He drove efforts to raise capital to fund the AECOM/URS transaction, and was a key member of the team that led the largest integration component involving the DCS Americas group.

Prior to joining AECOM, Rudd was a partner for 10 years with KPMG, where he held leadership roles and served many of the firm’s most-valued clients.

Keenan Driscoll, corporate vice president and assistant treasurer, will assume the role of treasurer. A senior finance leader with broad corporate finance and capital markets experience, Driscoll has been with AECOM since 2010.

“I’m pleased to welcome Troy and Keenan into these new roles and I’m confident they will extend the strong financial leadership Steve advanced during a period in which our company doubled in size,’’ said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Burke. “We are fortunate to have a depth of talent in our finance organization that allows Steve to take on more operational responsibility.’’
