Balfour Beatty’s US Civils business has appointed three leaders to executive roles,  the company announced on March 15. Dan Young and Jay Boyd will become vice presidents of operations in the Southwest and Southeast regions, respectively, while Terri Eller will serve as vice president, controller of the unit.

Young has more than 30 years of heavy civil experience, and previously served as the company’s director of construction in the Southwest. In his new position, he’ll continue to oversee joint venture operations for the $1.7 billion Interstate 635 East Project in Dallas, a design-build roadway project on behalf of Texas DOT, according to the release.

Boyd has worked for Balfour Beatty since 1999, and brings several decades of supervisory and hands-on experience in complex heavy civil and marine construction projects, per the release. His specialty is in delivering environmentally sensitive projects.

Eller has been with the firm since 2009 and has served in various controller roles, ensuring that accounting activities accurately reflect the business’ strategic financial objectives. She is a Certified Public Accountant, and holds a Master of Professional Accountancy degree from Georgia State University.

“Our business is evolving and continues to offer excellent opportunities for career development across the nation,” said Mark Konchar, Balfour Beatty’s president of US Civils. “These appointments will not only strengthen and maintain our operations but support strategies that focus on key markets and essential projects in our communities.”

The promotions come on the heels of the contractor’s full-year results, when the builder reported its profits dropped nearly 15%. The hit largely came in its investment portfolio. Balfour Beatty continues to de-risk its portfolio of work, which comes at the expense of civil, or infrastructure, work — 24% of the company’s 2023 backlog was in this type of construction, compared to 42% in 2020.
