He added all four appointees will help broaden the firm’s knowledge base, client relationship and understanding in key areas of government programs.

Somerville will help expand design-build service offerings and lead indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity and original equipment manufacturer management programs in his new position. He previously managed AECOM’s federal facilities business line.

Staponski will be the construction services lead and manage the development and expansion of program management and construction management operations, construction and design-build services and overall market approach.
