AECOM recognized by Fortune magazine as a World’s Most Admired Company for sixth consecutive year


LOS ANGELES (Jan. 21, 2020) — AECOM (NYSE:ACM), the world’s premier infrastructure firm, announced today that it has been named to Fortune magazine’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies for the sixth consecutive year.

“We’re proud to be recognized as one of Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies yet again,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our reputation as the world’s premier infrastructure firm remains stronger than ever. This significant honor is reflective of our leading global brand and celebrates the expertise and talent of our employees who are committed to delivering innovative, impactful solutions for our clients around the world.”

The annual survey is conducted by Fortune and global management consulting firm Korn Ferry, with top executives, directors and securities analysts rating enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent.

In fiscal year 2019, AECOM delivered strong financial results that exceeded its expectations on nearly every key financial metric, and enhanced value for its employees, clients and investors. Its teams advanced innovative solutions and delivered transformative work that will leave a lasting legacy – from the development of new megacities in the Middle East to skyline-shaping projects in New York City, from iconic new stadiums and arenas in Los Angeles to critical transportation projects in the United Kingdom and first-of-their-kind environmental solutions in Hong Kong. Further, AECOM continued to demonstrate its commitment to fostering the diversity of its workforce, achieve world-class safety results, infuse sustainability principles throughout the organization and give back to communities through its Blueprint for a Better World corporate responsibility platform.

According to Fortune, the World’s Most Admired Companies list is considered to be the definitive report card on corporate reputation. The companies featured on the list represent “the pinnacle of excellence” in nine key performance areas:
