Frederick "Fred" Werner is Group President, Design and Consulting Services, Americas, for AECOM (NYSE: ACM), a premier, fully integrated infrastructure firm that designs, builds, finances and operates assets for governments, businesses and organizations in more than 150 countries.

In this role, Mr. Werner leads the group's technical services practice areas — including architecture, cost consultancy, design, economics, energy, engineering, environmental, planning and program management — across the Americas, Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC). He ensures that AECOM is advancing growth across all of these regions and practice areas. Mr. Werner is also a member of AECOM's EMEA Executive Board, which oversees operational performance and drives strategic growth. Additionally, he is also a member of AECOM's Executive Leadership Team at the enterprise level.

Prior to this role, he was Chief Growth Officer and President of EMEA. Previously, he served as President, Corporate Development, and has also led AECOM's U.S. Infrastructure Group, which brought together the company's business throughout the U.S. in the fields of transportation, energy, water and development.

Mr. Werner also served as Chief Executive Officer of AECOM's Americas Transportation Group — part of the U.S. Infrastructure Group. He was promoted to that position following a successful stint as President of AECOM's legacy DMJM Harris operation.

During his time as DMJM Harris President, major projects included the design of the new Second Avenue Subway and the Permanent World Trade Center PATH Terminal projects in Manhattan; program management of the $2.4-billion Alameda Corridor rail expressway for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach; program management of the $2.5-billion Tren Urbano transit system serving San Juan, Puerto Rico; and general engineering consultancy for the $5-billion Phoenix, Arizona, freeway system.

Mr. Werner began his DMJM Harris career in the Geotechnical Division, where he progressed through a variety of roles — from Vice President and Manager of New Jersey Operations, Senior Vice President and Manager of New York Operations, to Chief Operating Officer — before becoming President.

During his professional career, which spans more than 30 years, Mr. Werner earned industry-wide recognition for his expertise in corporate operations management and for the management of large, technically complex civil engineering projects. He has overseen major projects in numerous market sectors, from highways and bridges to airports, ports and transit.
