United Engineers & Constructors’ CEO Scott Reeder announces retirement

Mount Laurel-based United Engineers & Constructors Inc. CEO Scott Reeder announced that, on June 28, after 46 years, he will retire. Reeder will continue to support the company as a board member.

Art Lembo, president of United’s Power Generation business, will assume the leadership role for the company.

Reeder began his career at Catalytic, a United legacy company, after graduating from Virginia Polytechnic Institute. During his career, Reeder served in a number of project leadership and senior management roles executing complex projects across North America and internationally.

Prior to his appointment to corporate leadership, Reeder led programs and projects ranging from turnkey engineering, construction and commissioning to operating support of large nuclear facilities and the design and construction of nuclear processing facilities.

Reeder’s experience also includes environmental compliance projects for coal-fired power plants and fleetwide maintenance and outage services support programs. His teams earned international recognition for innovation, industry leadership in industrial safety and achieving exceptional value through teaming.

“I am humbled by the experience of leading United Engineers & Constructors over the past four and a half years,” Reeder said. “It has truly been an honor to lead the company and work alongside the talented and dedicated members of our team. United’s focus is its people, and I am proud of what we built together.”

“United and its employees have benefited tremendously from Scott’s leadership and mentorship, and he has helped set forth a vision for the future of United,” Brad Holtmeier, partner at CriticalPoint Capital, said. “We are incredibly grateful for Scott’s partnership with CriticalPoint and wish him the best during his retirement.”
