New York — AECOM, a fully integrated global infrastructure firm, rang The Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange on May 31 in celebration of the firm’s 10th anniversary of its initial public offering (IPO). Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and chief executive officer, was joined by members of AECOM’s board of directors and executive leadership team.
“It’s a tremendous honor for all of us at AECOM to ring The Opening Bell for the second time at the NYSE, underscoring the progress we’ve made on our journey to become the world’s premier, fully integrated infrastructure firm,” said Mr. Burke. “Since our initial public offering a decade ago, we have significantly expanded our capabilities and grown our global footprint. I am proud to share this moment with our incredible employees as well as our visionary clients, whom we partner with to deliver innovative solutions for the world’s most complex challenges.”
In 2007, AECOM’s IPO was one of the all-time largest for the sector and one of the 10 largest NYSE listings that year. Since then, the firm has grown revenue 400 percent to $17.4 billion, its employee base has nearly tripled to 87,000 and its geographic reach has more than doubled to over 150 countries.
Today, AECOM is driving faster, smarter and better solutions that will define the next generation of infrastructure. The firm has ranked as the No. 1 “Top 500 Design Firms” for eight consecutive years by Engineering News Record, and was recently ranked No. 5 on the publication’s “Top 400 Contractors” list. Further, the company was named one of Fortune magazine’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” for the third consecutive year.
