A Fortune 500 company, CH2M HILL has approximately $5.5 billion annual and 25,000 employees. It is recognized as a global leader in consulting, engineering, construction, procurement, program management and operations for public and private clients serving the energy, water, environmental, transportation and facilities markets. Ms. Hinman’s goals for the firm are market leadership, disciplined growth and exceptional client service. To achieve these goals, she has prioritized safety, sustainability, innovation, diversity, ethics and collaboration as drivers for CH2M HILL’s success.
In 2012 and 2013, Ms. Hinman served as the president of CH2M HILL’s International Division, which represented approximately US$2.5 billion annual revenue and 12,000 employees worldwide, outside of the U.S. Her main focus areas included Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Canada, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Singapore and China. Prior to taking this role, Ms. Hinman served as president of CH2M HILL’s 7,000 person Facilities and Infrastructure Division.

During this time, Ms. Hinman also served as director of Mergers & Acquisitions, responsible for overseeing the firm’s acquisitive growth strategies worldwide and for completing the acquisition of Halcrow Group, a UK-headquartered engineering firm with US$1 billion in annual revenue. In 2012 she served as Halcrow’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer prior to its integration into CH2M HILL.
