AECOM announced the appointment of Tom Prendergast as New York Metro Executive for its Design & Consulting Services business. In this role, Prendergast will be responsible for delivering projects across business lines and leading more than 3,000 staff within the states of New York and New Jersey.

“Tom’s prior leadership roles and his vast knowledge of the greater New York area are invaluable for our clients,” said Dan Faust, chief executive of AECOM’s U.S. East region. “As we lead the charge to a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive future, we will benefit from Tom’s extensive experience working on critical infrastructure projects and leveraging technology and digital platforms to deliver innovative solutions to our clients.”

Prendergast joined AECOM in March 2020 as a national transit lead in the Americas, following 25 years with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in New York City, the largest agency of its kind in the country serving over 8.5 million daily users.

In his new role, Prendergast will focus on delivering seamless solutions for AECOM’s clients that leverage its integrated delivery platform of architecture, building engineering, transportation, water and wastewater, and program and project management. He will continue to develop client relationships across the New York and New Jersey markets and focus on strategic growth areas.

“I’m excited to lead AECOM’s New York Metro area,” said Prendergast. “We have an incredible group of engineers, architects, planners, technicians, and managers who are among the most talented not just within our company but within this industry. Here in New York and New Jersey, infrastructure is more than our backbone, it’s an essential driver of our economy, culture, and quality of life and our project teams are proud to play such an important role shaping forward progress.”
