Knight Piésold Appoints Devin Field as Chairman and Chief Financial Officer

December 5, 2017, Denver, CO, USA – Knight Piésold announces the appointment of Devin Field as chairman and chief financial officer (CFO), effective January 1, 2018. Devin succeeds André Nieuwenhuizen, who is retiring as chairman and CFO after twenty years of leading Knight Piésold.

Devin joined Knight Piésold earlier this year after serving as the CFO and managing director at M+W Group in Singapore, where he drove the financial performance of multiple operating units in the Asia Pacific region, including the UAE, Australia, India, China, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Prior to that, he worked at Black & Veatch in the USA and later transferred to Thailand as the Asia Pacific finance and administration director, overseeing operations in Asia and Australia. He also previously worked at Fluor Daniel in the USA, where he became involved in international finance. Devin holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Texas.

He brings more than 25 years of international financial management experience, holding leadership roles within division and corporate levels at top tier engineering construction companies. He has been involved in managing strategies to identify and venture into new markets and business segments, while enhancing operations through balanced risk management and responsible cost saving initiatives.

“Devin is an excellent addition to our global management team, and we are confident that he will be leading Knight Piésold onward to continued success,” said Leon Furstenburg, board director. “Our history spans nearly 100 years, and this is an exciting time as we deepen our focus on operational excellence and profitable growth, positioning Knight Piésold for another hundred more.”

“Working with André has been an honor and a privilege, and we thank him for his invaluable and passionate leadership over the last two decades,” said Leon. “A dynamic, visionary leader, he has shaped our strategic direction and made us the success we are today. The company has attained remarkable achievements under his guidance, and we will continue to build on his legacy.”
