KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Oct. 2, 2017) — Burns & McDonnell has added five experienced project managers to its Aviation team, extending the firm’s established capabilities to deliver integrated and design-build project services.

“With airports, airlines and their owners rising to meet customer demands and address growth needs, the ability to deliver comprehensive projects — and to do so efficiently and effectively — is more important than ever,” says Bret Pilney, vice president of the firm’s Aviation Group. “That’s what we do, and that’s why we’re adding to our team. These professionals are well-known in the industry for delivering successful projects, and doing it by bringing teams together. They’re a perfect fit.”

The new project managers:

  • Mark Deaton, who works to deliver integrated design-build services for clients focused on quality, value, efficiency and empowerment during renovations and new construction projects. He has more than a quarter century of experience, including the past decade leading a 40-member federal project team and its $500 million project portfolio.

Her more than quarter century of experience includes the past seven as assistant director for capital programs and environmental management at the Massachusetts Port Authority. The authority, known as Massport, owns and operates three airports — Boston Logan International Airport, L.G. Hanscom Field, and Worcester Regional Airport — along with the Port of Boston’s containerized cargo, cruise and autoport terminals.
