Burns & McDonnell Names Jeff Reid Director of Canada for the Burns & McDonnell Energy Group


KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Reid has been named director of Canada for the Burns & McDonnell Energy Group, which is the company's power generation division. In this new role, he will oversee new generation opportunities, power generation upgrades, retrofits and related expansion activities throughout all provinces of Canada.

Jeff Reid has been named Country Director - Canada for the Burns & McDonnell Energy Group.

Over the past 10 years, Burns & McDonnell has greatly expanded its presence in Canada, designing and building some of the country's largest power generation and transmission projects. Burns & McDonnell is currently managing construction of the 350-megawatt Chinook Power Station for SaskPower in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, and a controls upgrade at the Bruce Power Nuclear Station in Ontario.

Over his 21-year career with Burns & McDonnell, Mr. Reid has been instrumental in fostering client relationships, developing and executing new generation projects, large-scale air quality control retrofits and a range of other plant upgrades to fossil-fuel power generation plants operated by the largest utilities in North America. He has been instrumental in developing the firm's engineer-procure-construct (EPC) project delivery methods and has led the firm's efforts with coal gasification projects. More recently, he has helped the firm win several reciprocating engine power projects for utilities needing fast-start power resources to complement the addition of large-scale renewable generation.

"Jeff has been very successful in working with our largest power customers, helping them sort through critical, major capital investment decisions," says Rick Halil, president and general manager of the Burns & McDonnell Energy Division. "With his track record of building strong relationships and deep understanding of the power industry, we are excited about our future growth prospects in Canada."

A civil engineer with a structural emphasis, Reid began his career at Burns & McDonnell in 1997, working initially in the oil and gas sector, and then on large retrofits, expansions and repowering of coal-fired power facilities prior to moving into a business development role in 2001. He received his bachelor's degree in 1994 and master's degree in 1997; both from Iowa State University.
