2020 Honorary Member
Ann Massey, President of Corporate Development for Wood plc and the former CEO of Environment and Infrastructure Solutions for Wood plc, says her insatiable curiosity led her to study geology; but it was dogged determination that kept her working in that field. As interested as she was in the subject, she says she was ill prepared for the environment she encountered when she graduated and went to work in the oil field in the early 1980's. "It was the first time I realized there was definitely prejudice toward women in the oil field and in business in general. I wanted to help change that not only for myself, but others."
With that dogged determination, Ann has over 30 years of experience in project, program and operations management and business development. She has spent the last 10 years leading a Top 10 global environmental business as the former CEO of MACTEC, President of AmecFW E&I, and most recently CEO of Wood E&I. She believes her success is a result of creating high-performing teams that deliver profitable engineering, consulting and project management services to customers across the globe. Ann maintains a visible active role with several key customers, drives a customer focused culture, and mentors others, especially women in the business.
She is a leader that inspires people by example, and she is unabashed about her enthusiasm for the industry.
Ann has an BS in Geology and an MBA from Tennessee Technological University.
