Kevin Lynch has 25 years of experience with expertise in acquisition strategy.

LOS ANGELES—Kevin Lynch, a 25-year real estate veteran, has joined AECOM as EVP and chief strategy officer. Based in AECOM’s Los Angeles headquarters, he will focus on progressing the company’s global growth plan while coordinating with operations and company leaders.

“Kevin’s successful track record of developing global growth strategies for large and complex organizations, as well as his deep experience across multiple industries, provides him with a unique perspective that aligns very well with AECOM’s growth goals and vision,” says Michael S. Burke, AECOM president and CEO. Lynch was unavailable to comment about the new position.

Lynch is a seasoned expert of acquisition strategy, operating strategy and commercial due diligence. He formerly served as a senior partner at Deloitte Consulting LLP. There, he managed the company’s acquisitions growth, partnering with small and large companies from a variety of industries. He has also formerly served as the director of cross-industry strategy practice for PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Although Lynch will focus on AECOM’s global strategy, one of the firm’s largest projects is underway right here. In partnership with Mack Urban, AECOM has recently submitted site plans for the six acre, $80-million plot of land it purchased last year. Designed by AC Martin, the plans include multifamily units, hotel space and ground floor retail space on two adjacent sites.
