KANSAS CITY, MO — Burns & McDonnell announces several key leadership promotions to President and Senior Vice President after another record year of sales for the 100 percent employee-owned engineering, construction, and architecture firm. These individuals contributed to a year that produced $5.7 billion in sales and resulted in the support of nearly 17,000 projects supported by the growth of nearly 650 employees.

Joel DeBoer has been promoted to President in the Aviation & Federal Group, which he has led since 2021. DeBoer has spent his entire 32-year career at Burns & McDonnell, starting in 1991 as an Electrical Engineer assigned to both aviation and federal projects, then as a Project Manager before moving into leadership roles, where he served as a Department Manager, Vice President of Operations, and now General Manager and President for the group. DeBoer oversees all domestic and international aviation and federal projects for Burns & McDonnell and is responsible for national collaboration across all offices.

New Senior Vice Presidents include the following employee-owners:

Greg Carlson leads commercial construction/design-build (CDB) at the firm. With more than three decades of experience in the AEC industry, his project experience ranges from office, retail, and mixed-use to manufacturing, aviation, and federal work. Carlson helps provide the strategic vision for implementing design-build project delivery companywide. Since joining the firm in 2013, the CDB Group has increased sales year over year.

Andy Jarvis oversees operations of the Transmission & Distribution (T&D) Group, including projects, technical knowledge, and management of employee-owners. The group has substantial investments in a continued focus on quality and training, and Jarvis will maintain direct management of these areas and will work to share and advance best practices companywide. With the firm since 1994, Jarvis has a wide variety of management, engineering design, and construction experience in high-voltage substations, overhead and underground transmission lines, and utility telecom projects.
