PS&S hires veteran engineer as first chief growth officer

Architecture and engineering firm PS&S has named a chief growth officer — a new position — it announced Monday.

Andrew Malek has joined the Warren-based company, which also provides environmental and surveying services, to lead its strategic growth and expansion efforts nationwide and develop new business opportunities in the public and private sectors.

“We are excited to have Andrew join PS&S to help spearhead our strategic growth,” CEO and President John Sartor said in a prepared statement. “Andrew will be an important addition to our management team. In addition to our recent purchase of DW Smith and the opening of a new office in Texas, we now have plans to expand our existing presence in New York as well as new geographies in North Carolina and Florida. As we look to grow, Andrew will be a key member of our management team, helping us to increase PS&S’ exposure and develop new business.”

Malek, who has more than 35 years of experience as an engineer in multiple disciplines, spent 14 years with multidisciplinary firm AKRF Inc., including time as CEO. Most recently, he has served in various leadership and management positions overseeing building construction and other projects for private clients.

“I am thrilled to join PS&S’ leadership team as chief growth officer,” he said in a statement. “I was drawn to PS&S by its amazing employee-focused culture, seasoned technical leadership and multidisciplinary service offering in many growing markets. I look forward to working with this experienced leadership team to increase awareness of PS&S’ practice areas and build on the firm’s growth momentum in both the public and private sectors.”
