United Engineers & Constructors’ CEO Scott Reeder Announces Retirement

Scott Reeder, Chief Executive Officer of United Engineers & Constructors, Inc. (United), has announced his retirement, effective June 28, 2024, after more than 46 years of service. Following his retirement, Mr. Reeder will continue to support United as a Board member.

Mr. Reeder began his career at Catalytic, a legacy company of United, after graduating from Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Throughout his tenure, he held various project leadership and senior management positions, overseeing complex projects across North America and internationally. Before ascending to corporate leadership, he managed programs and projects ranging from turnkey engineering, construction, and commissioning to operating support for large nuclear facilities and the design and construction of nuclear processing facilities. His extensive experience also includes environmental compliance projects for coal-fired power plants and fleet-wide maintenance and outage services. Many of these projects received accolades for outstanding value and industry-leading results. Under his leadership, teams earned international recognition for innovation, safety, and exceptional value through collaboration.

Since becoming CEO in 2020, Mr. Reeder successfully guided United through a transition of ownership during the global pandemic and revitalized the company’s brand, reinstating its historical name, United Engineers & Constructors, reflecting its nearly 120-year legacy.

“I am humbled by the experience of leading United Engineers & Constructors over the past four and a half years,” said Mr. Reeder. “It has truly been an honor to lead the company and work alongside the talented and dedicated members of our team. United’s focus is its people, and I am proud of what we built together.”

Brad Holtmeier, Partner at CriticalPoint Capital, remarked, “United and its employees have benefited tremendously from Scott’s leadership and mentorship, and he has helped set forth a vision for the future of United. We are incredibly grateful for Scott’s partnership with CriticalPoint and wish him the best during his retirement.”

Art Lembo, currently President of United’s Power Generation business, will succeed Mr. Reeder. Mr. Lembo, having held numerous executive leadership roles within the company, is well-positioned to continue United’s mission of supporting North America’s critical infrastructure build and modernization while working closely with clients and employees.
