AECOM announced today that Clarence T. Schmitz has joined its Board of Directors.
Schmitz’s extensive career in the professional services industry spans four decades, with significant global experience as an executive and board member. Most recently, he served as chairman and chief executive officer of Outsource Partners International, Inc., a company he co-founded as a startup and grew to become one of the largest firms dedicated to outsourcing finance, accounting and tax services — with approximately 4,000 employees and operations in the United States, United Kingdom, India, Malaysia and Bulgaria — prior to its sale to EXL Service Holdings.
Previously, Schmitz was executive vice president and chief financial officer of Jefferies Group, Inc., and spent 25 years at KPMG LLP, where he held a number of leadership positions, including national managing partner, and served on its Board of Directors and management committee.
“It is an honor to welcome Clarence to our Board of Directors,” said AECOM President and Chief Executive Officer Michael S. Burke. “His diverse experience guiding organizations that have delivered extraordinary growth will greatly complement the existing expertise on our Board as we focus on the continued growth of our business.”
