Randy Schmidt has been named Managing Director of the Burns & McDonnell Terminals and Pipelines group, replacing Ted Born, who is retiring. Schmidt's promotion was effective 1 January 2017.
Under Born's leadership, the Terminals and Pipelines Group has contributed significantly to Burns & McDonnell growth in recent years by successfully executing a number of large projects for major oil and gas industry companies.
Schmidt will be based in Houston, where he will lead a nationwide group of 140 engineering, procurement, and construction professionals who are engaged on several large volume storage and transportation projects for a range of petroleum-based products. In his 14 years with Burns & McDonnell, Schmidt has led teams on a wide range of projects, including several major oil and gas pipeline, storage and loading/unloading facilities for marine, rail and truck modes of transportation.
"The oil and gas industry is a fast and furious business and Randy has a track record of excelling in that type of environment," says Mike Fenske, Senior Vice President. "Meeting aggressive schedules on complex, high-budget petroleum projects has become our specialty. Randy is an expert on EPC project delivery with a deep understanding of the true benefits it can deliver to clients."
During his 24 years of professional experience, Schmidt has specialised in leading multi-discipline teams on all phases of large scale facilities improvements. In addition to his oil and gas experience, he has overseen completion of a program of projects through EPC delivery for the district heating and cooling plant serving the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical complex in the world.
