Black & Veatch Names Proven Energy, Natural Resources Executive Steve Meck as Global Sustainability Leader's General Counsel


Global sustainability and critical infrastructure leader Black & Veatch has appointed Steve Meck as general counsel and chief compliance officer. As part of the company's leadership team, he also will serve as secretary of the Black & Veatch Board of Directors.

Meck will lead the team in providing the full suite of legal support and advice needed to enable Black & Veatch's multi-billion-dollar annual business. He will drive enterprise-wide compliance and integrity in all transactions undertaken by Black & Veatch's global workforce of roughly 12,500 professionals, in particular supporting the company's transition to transparently meet the latest environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards.

Meck brings extensive experience in commercial contracts, enabling advanced technology investments and securing large-scale projects, including in the mining, petroleum and construction industries.

Given his more than 20 years of working in United States, Japan and Australia, Meck brings an essential global perspective to propelling complex engineering projects toward execution in the fast-moving critical infrastructure space. That requires a contemporary understanding of megatrends, clients' priorities, regulations and new technology sources.

"We are very excited to have Steve join us ? with his personal energy and client-savvy approach ? to lead our global legal, risk and compliance activities," Black & Veatch Chairman and CEO Mario Azar said. "How we manage risk and performance on behalf of our clients is the core of our strategic differentiation in how we deliver value at scale as an innovative market disruptor."

"Black & Veatch is the industry benchmark in tackling the world's largest, first-of-a-kind critical infrastructure projects in energy, water and communications," Meck said. "It's a fantastic time to be part of the world-changing innovation that Black & Veatch's clients rely on when they partner with us."

A lawyer by trade, Meck has served as general counsel and chief compliance officer at The Weir Group PLC ? a 150-year-old manufacturer of highly-engineered products for mining, industrial and construction sectors ? and held leadership roles with mining giant BHP in Australia and the United States.
