Marlea Tichy has over 30 years of experience in the construction and engineering industry and has held key executive leadership, operations and project management roles in the fields of water, infrastructure, buildings, military facilities, environmental clean-up, airports and sports facilities.
Rising to the level of CEO, Ms. Tichy’s recent career accomplishments have included opportunities to orchestrate a series of PE turnarounds.
Earlier, Tichy played a key role in establishing the design-build subsidiaries at both MWH Global and CDM, holding significant Operations and Board level roles at each firm. While COO of MWH Constructors, she helped grow the group to over $250M, profitably overseeing operations in both the U.S. and the U.K. before being promoted out of the role to assist the firm in a new venture.
A highly versatile executive, Ms. Tichy has a strong track record of working across organizations to achieve business goals and success. She has shown unusual adaptability to “go where the business needs are” and perform as a highly capable operations, project, business, functional, sales and corporate executive leader. Many of her more notable career accomplishments have resulted from her ability to start-up or “fix” a project, program, business, or division while continuing to perform her “day job.” She is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard University, and holds a bachelor’s degree in construction management from the University of Denver.
