ExecutiveBiz featured Mike Costas, general manager of defense and space business at Bechtel, in its most recent Executive Spotlight interview published Tuesday. He talked about the company’s 125- year history as well as its efforts to help bridge gaps in U.S. infrastructure modernization and latest technology implementation. Costas also shared his goals for Bechtel in the defense and space markets and how the senior leadership is driving company growth opportunities.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Costas about the work of Bechtel’s Defense & Space business:
“Bechtel is working to build sophisticated launch infrastructure for the Space Launch System for NASA. That’s a human spaceflight rated system, an extremely complex launch platform that will place men, women, and people of color on the moon. It continues to be an extraordinary challenge and we appreciate the partnership built with NASA in support of this important mission.
We’ve been at the forefront of working with the Department of State for many years in building relationships with countries across the globe. It would be impossible to build a rail project in a place like Riyadh, Saudi Arabia without mastering government relations and knowing their supply chains and community needs. This foundation has provided the ability to deliver critical diplomatic infrastructure which is a tremendous market opportunity for us.”
