Rich Mahaley

Burns & McDonnell recently selected Rich Mahaley to lead and expand operations in Orlando, Fla. Mahaley joined the international engineering, architecture, construction, consulting and environmental firm in the 1980s and most recently served as Burns & McDonnell India’s CEO and president for five years. The firm recently relocated within Orlando to a 12,000-square-foot office space at 2301 Maitland Center Parkway, to accommodate plans to triple the size of its local workforce throughout the next three years. The expansion in the region is part of firm’s nationwide effort to hire more than 1,000 professionals annually. “Throughout my career, I’ve felt compelled to grow,” said Mahaley. “From the top down, I’ve been encouraged to go as far as I can and stretch my managerial and technological capabilities to the max. I’m grateful for that encouragement and this new opportunity to grow and build our team in Florida to bolster our comprehensive, design-build service offerings.”
