AECOM announced today that Paul J. Gennaro, senior vice president and chief communications officer, has joined the advisory board of Emory University’s Center for Ethics.


As an international leader in the exploration of ethics, the center is dedicated to exploring how ethical issues underlie the decisions that shape minds, lives and society.  The center is committed to inspiring and advancing scholarship and education in ethics, igniting the moral imagination of leaders in all walks of life, and fostering lives of moral meaning and ethical engagement.

“Paul brings strong corporate expertise in advancing ethical communications to the board,” says Dr. Paul Root Wolpe, director of the Emory Center for Ethics. “Working with Paul and AECOM will provide an excellent, new vantage point for the Center for Ethics — making our board even stronger than it already is.”

As a member of the advisory board, Gennaro will partner with center personnel and provide insight to the university by leveraging his global experience at AECOM, which is recognized as “One of the World’s Most Ethical Companies” by the Ethisphere Institute.

“I am truly honored to join the advisory board for the Emory University Center for Ethics,” said Gennaro.  “I look forward to interfacing with center staff and members of the advisory board on the collective need for leaders in business, government and academia to advance dialogues and actions in support of ethical cultures and practices.”

Gennaro also serves as the chairman of the Ethisphere Institute’s Communications Advisory Board, where AECOM is partnering with Aflac, the Arthur W. Page Society, Dartmouth University, Edelman, Ford Motor Company, General Electric, the Panama Canal Authority and Waste Management Inc., to elevate the conversation around global best practices in internal and external communications related to the advancement of ethical business cultures.
