Mark Rynning has started a role as chief operating officer in Mount Laurel-based Hill International, according to a Monday announcement from the firm. Rynning comes to Hill following more than three decades with Tetra Tech Inc. where he led the Resilient, Sustainable Infrastructure Division. He will report to Hill CEO Raouf Ghali and oversee Hill’s operations around the world.

Rynning began his career as a design engineer, rising through the ranks to become a project manager, client manager, operation leader and business unit leader before assuming the division president role at Tetra Tech.

“Hill is unique in our industry,” Rynning said. “There is no exclusively program, project and construction management firm of similar size and reach as Hill. This independence gives us a strong platform for growth: Clients know they can trust Hill, and we have the depth and breadth to support even the largest, most ambitious construction programs out there. All of this made joining Hill an exciting opportunity for me, and I’m ready to continue our tradition of excellence and client service.”

“Around the world, clients are executing increasingly bold and complex construction projects,” Ghali said. “Mark’s track record of profitable success and skillsets as a leader are exactly what Hill needs today to ensure we continue to deliver the infrastructure of change for the long-term.”

Rynning holds Bachelor of Civil Engineering and MBA degrees from the University of Florida and is a registered Professional Engineer in Florida.
