Bob Pragada and Kevin Berryman, respectively chief operating officer and chief financial officer of Jacobs Engineering Group (NYSE: JEC), will assume additional duties as co-presidents of the global professional services provider beginning on Dec. 1.

Jacobs said Monday Pragada will manage all of its global operations and continue to oversee the buildings, infrastructure and advanced facilities unit along with Dawne Hickton, executive vice president and COO of the aerospace, technology and nuclear business.

Berryman will be responsible for Jacobs’ digital and information technology organization while continuing the management of financial, investor relations, mergers and acquisitions, internal audits and communications functions.

Steve Demetriou, chair and CEO of Jacobs, said the company recognizes the contributions of both appointees and that he will work with them to create value for shareholders and clients.

Pragada initially worked for the Dallas-based contractor from 2006 to 2014 and was named COO in September 2018 after returning two years prior. He was previously the CEO of Houston-based industrial services provider Brock Group.

Berryman was appointed to his most recent capacity in 2015 after serving as CFO at International Flavors and Fragrances.
