SACRAMENTO, CA — Balfour Beatty announces the appointment of Emily Kay to incoming President of California operations. Kay will provide strategic, operational oversight, meet the expanding needs of clients and partners in high-growth markets, and work alongside local leadership teams to help leverage collaboration, innovation, and best practices.

Kay succeeds current California President, Brian Cahill, a 31-year Balfour Beatty veteran who will retire at the end of 2024. She will work in a transitional role until the end of the year and assumes her new role and responsibilities as President in California starting January 1, 2025.

Kay has been with Balfour Beatty for 10 years and has more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry. She has held various positions at the company including her role as Vice President of Operations in California, where she leads teams in providing operational excellence through deliveries of county facilities and K-12 additions, modernizations, and new construction projects in southern California. She also spearheaded the expansion of Balfour Beatty’s special projects operations in the Los Angeles area, where the company provides services for a wide variety of market sectors.

“Appointing Emily ... is the positive and future-forward momentum we need to support and strengthen our growth in the industry,” said Eric Stenman, Balfour Beatty U.S. President and Chief Executive Officer. “[Kay] embodies leadership qualities that support our people-first commitment to our teammates, industry partners, and clients, and will provide essential services in developing and enhancing our communities."
