KBR Promotes Calton to Executive Vice President, Operations

KBR has reported the promotion of Dennis Calton to Executive Vice President, Operations. Calton will direct KBR's Project Management and Controls (PMOC) department as well as the company's Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Services (EPCS) department. Calton will assume the duties formally held by David Zimmerman who was named President, KBR Services last fall. Zimmerman will now focus exclusively in the role of President, KBR Services.

Calton's promotion is part of KBR's continued effort to maximize its business structure, while positioning the company for future growth. Last September, the company announced a reorganization that resulted in the creation of six distinct business segments.

"Dennis brings a wealth of experience to his position. In his over 30 year tenure with KBR, he has served in key project management and engineering roles," said William P. Utt, KBR's Chairman, President and CEO. "I am confident Dennis' leadership will provide added value to KBR's work in positioning itself as a market leader, focused on future growth and success."
