Arcadis appoints Kelly Farrell as CEO of CallisonRTKL

Arcadis (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading global Design & Consultancy organization for natural and built assets, today announced that Kelly Farrell AIA will become CEO of CallisonRTKL, the company's architecture business, as of 10 May 2019. Currently an Executive Vice President of the practice, Ms. Farrell succeeds Tim Neal, who led CallisonRTKL for the past two years.

With gross revenues of 301 million in 2018 and over 1,600 professionals, CallisonRTKL is a top five player in global architecture and a leader in retail design and commercial mixed-use developments.

A registered architect with more than 20 years of industry experience, Farrell has been with CallisonRTKL since 2004, steadily earning positions of increasing responsibility and managing a diverse portfolio of projects throughout the globe. She has served on the CallisonRTKL Executive Committee for the past four years, as well as Global Workplace Practice Group Leader, responsible for the firm's work with the US Federal government and multi-national corporations. Prior to her new role, Farrell served as CallisonRTKL's Western Region Sponsor and Executive Vice President for Projects and Partnerships.

Tim Neal, after a long career with Arcadis and nearly two years as CEO of CallisonRTKL, has decided to explore career opportunities outside of Arcadis. During his accomplished career at Arcadis, Neal served almost four years as Global Director of the Buildings business line at Arcadis NV. Prior to Arcadis, he spent over six years as the regional leader of the UK and European businesses of EC Harris.

CallisonRTKL has recently successfully navigated a series of management changes, including a strategic review which ended with Arcadis' commitment to maintain ownership, so Farrell's appointment brings stability and a known quality to its leadership. As someone who has made her career at the firm, she understands the unique demands facing today's global architecture and design practices.

Farrell has worked throughout the world on a wide variety of projects. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Masters in Architecture from The Catholic University of America.
