Michael Kolloway, formerly vice president and deputy general counsel for the Americas region at Parsons, has been promoted to senior VP, general counsel and secretary of the Pasadena, California-based engineering and infrastructure services contractor.
Parsons said Monday Kolloway succeeds Clyde Ellis, who will transition to a new role as chief legal adviser and support corporate activities.
Ellis also informed the company of his plans to retire in 2018 after a 12-year career there.
“Mike has a wealth of knowledge and experience working on legal matters, and his background spans a broad spectrum of areas,” said Chuck Harrington, chairman and CEO of Parsons.
Kolloway spent 15 years at AECOM (NYSE: ACM) where he previously held the roles of senior corporate VP and assistant general counsel for the engineering firm’s operations and risk management business.
The more than 30-year legal veteran has also co-authored chapters on two engineering contracting books earned his law degree from University of Illinois.
