Morristown-based professional services corporation Louis Berger has named a new president for its international division, it announced recently.
James G. Bach will serve as leader of the billion-dollar business’s efforts outside the U.S., reporting to CEO Jim Stamatis. Louis Berger provides engineering, planning, architecture, construction management and other services to government and private clients.
“As a skilled and seasoned executive with decades of leadership overseeing domestic and international operations at Louis Berger, Jim was a natural choice to assume the helm of our international division,” Stamatis said in a prepared statement. “Jim’s leadership skills and his extraordinary understanding of our global operations makes him distinctively capable of working across internal operations to align and rally talent and resources to meet our clients’ needs. Jim will be a strong asset to our international operation as we continue to enhance client service in target markets.”
Bach will be based in London at the company’s international headquarters.
He had previously been the company’s chief operating officer, serving in that role for four years in Louis Berger’s Morristown headquarters. Prior to that role, he was COO for the U.S. division for four years, part of a 35-year career with Louis Berger.
“When I joined Louis Berger 35 years ago, it was primarily an international company,” he said in a statement. “While we have immensely expanded our U.S. market during that time, our international work will always be part of our DNA as a company. I am enthusiastic to work with such an extremely talented and collaborative global team, and look forward to working with our teams across Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East to continue to deliver solutions for a better world.”
