“We transform the world around us each and every day,” says longtime construction industry leader Anne Ellis.
Ellis has personally had a hand in so many transformations in her career that if each were a pre-cast concrete slab, you’d have enough to construct a skyscraper.
In a career that has spanned more than 30 years, Anne Ellis has seen just about everything that the construction industry can throw at a person.
And she’s wore enough hats that she could practically start her own haberdashery: engineer, project management, instructor, marketing, policy influencer, lobbyist.
Yeah. She’s done all that.
Her current role is as Vice President of Global Initiatives for AECOM Technology Corporation, and she recently concluded a two year stint as President of the American Concrete Institute (ACI). It was another example of Ms. Ellis’ habit of breaking through glass ceilings, as she was the second female — and first female engineer — to head the non-profit society comprised of over 20,000 engineers and construction professionals.
