Major General Tim Byers Leading Jacobs' Federal & Environmental Solutions Business
DALLAS, April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:J) is pleased to announce that Major General Tim Byers has been promoted to lead the company's Federal & Environmental Solutions (F&ES) business, including support to U.S. government agencies and commercial clients responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.
F&ES is a global business delivering mission-driven buildings, infrastructure and environmental solutions to U.S. federal, public sector, private sector and defense contractors.

As senior vice president and general manager of F&ES, Byers brings to the role almost four decades of engineering and operations leadership. Major General Byers joined Jacobs four years ago to lead F&ES growth and sales after he retired from the U.S. Air Force as The Air Force Civil Engineer, having served 32 years, which culminated with his leadership of the 54,000-person engineering workforce. During this time, he managed an $18 billion worldwide facility, infrastructure and real estate portfolio.
"We're honored to have Tim on point working with our clients and leading our team of Federal & Environmental Solutions professionals in these dynamic and challenging times," said Jacobs President and Chief Operating Officer Bob Pragada. "His depth of leadership experience and 'people first, mission always' ethos is key in helping the government and private sector deliver critical solutions that advance strategic initiatives and support operational and environmental excellence."
A purpose-driven leader, Byers believes in giving back. He is active in Jacobs' VETNET and ACE Employee Networks and serves on the Wounded Warrior Advisory Board, National NDIA Board, SAME Foundation Board and ACEC Water and Environmental Board. He has a master's degree in Engineering Management and a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering. Byers is also past National President and Fellow of the Society of American Military Engineers and holds several distinguished leadership awards from the U.S. Air Force.
