LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 8, 2015--
AECOM (NYSE:ACM), a 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 M. 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

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

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 S. Burke. “We are
fortunate to have a depth of talent in our finance organization that
allows Steve to take on more operational responsibility.’’
