James Ferris, industrial client group chief executive for global engineering and construction firm CH2M Hill, has announced his plan to retire Sept. 1, 2006. Ferris had worldwide responsibility for all of CH2M Hill's industrial, manufacturing, and energy and power businesses. He will continue to serve as a director on CH2M Hill's board, and as a consultant and advisor to the firm.

Ferris joined the CH2M Hill management team in January 1994 as president of the then-new Federal Group. One of Ferris's first initiatives was to build a Department of Energy (DOE) business, which was successfully launched with CH2M Hill's selection as DOE's Rocky Flats contractor in 1995.

Ferris also serves as a director on several boards and is a trustee of The Keystone Center, a not-for-profit enterprise dedicated to the development of technological-based policy directives for environmental sustainability around the globe. He has participated in the World Economic Forum (WEF) at Davos, Switzerland, and the engineering and construction governors committee at WEF. He also has been a member of the Prince of Wales Business Leaders Forum, and the G8 Renewable Energy Task Force.
