Sponsored by Deloitte Private and The Wall Street Journal, the program recognizes outstanding U.S. private companies and the achievements of their management teams.

Burns & McDonnell is among the 2023 designees of U.S. private companies that have demonstrated excellence in strategic planning and execution, a commitment to their people and to fostering a dynamic culture, as well as strong financials. Designees propelled their businesses forward and remained true to their purpose and values by investing in their people, creating advantage through digital transformation, taking measurable action on sustainability, and demonstrating their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

“We’ve worked relentlessly to make our clients and our communities successful since 1898,” says Ray Kowalik, chairman and CEO of Burns & McDonnell. “Being 100% employee-owned is at the heart of Burns & McDonnell, and it is the key to having everyone care more about our clients, our communities, each other and our company.
