Bechtel names new president

US LNG engineering firm Bechtel has appointed Craig Albert as new president and chief operating officer.

He will succeed Jack Futcher who plans to retire at the end of 2020 following a 40-year career with the company.

Futcher will serve as Becthel’s vice chairman and afterwards will remain as a non-executive director on the company’s board.

In his new role, Albert will be responsible for overseeing the company’s four global business units and lead Bechtel’s Operating Committee.

Albert will be based at the company’s headquarters in Reston, Virginia, and will report to CEO Brendan Bechtel.

The new appointments are effective September 8 of this year.

Albert joined Bechtel in 1998 as a senior member of Bechtel’s business development team.

He went on to management roles at major power, waste treatment, and LNG projects in the US and Australia.

In 2011, he oversaw the merger of Bechtel’s commercial nuclear power business with its defense and national security unit to form a new Nuclear, Security, and Environmental business unit, which he led as president.

He took the helm at Bechtel’s infrastructure business unit in 2016.

Shaun Kenny will succeed Albert as president of the infrastructure business unit, based in London.

Kenny has held multiple executive and critical project leadership positions since joining Bechtel in 1997.
