Former USAID Head Alonzo Fulgham To Help Form CH2M Hill Intl Development Strategy

Alonzo Fulgham

CH2M Hill has appointed Alonzo Fulgham, a former chief operating officer and acting administrator at the U.S. Agency for International Development, to the company’s environmental services business group.

The Denver-based company said Fulgham, a 20-year USAID veteran, will serve as vice president for strategy and sustainable international development and join the strategic planning and business development team.

His responsibilities will include identifying and securing new business in sustainable development, climate science and public health and security.

Fulgham will bring experience and knowledge of the international development marketplace as the company aims to expand in new markets and remain competitive in the environmental industry sector, said Dr. Mark Morris, senior vice president and director of strategic planning and business development for the environmental services group.

“I sense there is a healthy balance between competition and collaboration as the firm seeks to solve complex engineering problems in the face of extreme infrastructure, environment, and climate change challenges, ” Fulgham said in a release.

President Obama appointed Fulgham acting administrator of USAID in January 2009 after serving three years as the agency’s COO.

As administrator, Fulgham managed an estimated $15 billion portfolio in more than 88 countries.

The company said his areas of focus included climate change resiliency and remediation; food security and land management; health access and HIV/AIDS response; and sustainable economic development in emerging economies and fragile states.

Following USAID, he joined non-profit organization International Relief and Development as a vice president, leading global strategy and operations for securing non-U.S. government business in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
