Environment, Energy & Construction and Oil & Gas – over the coming months.

exceptional leader with an ideal set of skills and experience for the new COO
position. Having led Flint and its nearly 13,000 employees through the rapid
growth and development of the North American energy sector, Bill has a deep
understanding of the engineering, construction and technical services market
and knows what it takes to successfully manage a major public company. Bill
also spearheaded the seamless integration of Flint into URS, demonstrating
tremendous leadership skills, and I’m confident that Bill will be an
invaluable asset for URS as COO.”

Mr. Lingard said: “I am honored to have the opportunity to continue to work
with our extraordinarily talented leadership team – including our four
division presidents – in this new role. In a challenging, highly competitive
market, URS has tremendous advantages, including scale and geographic reach,
leading talent and expertise in a diverse group of market sectors, and a
strong culture of client service. I look forward to contributing to the
Company’s ongoing growth and success.”

On the promotion of Mr. Hicks, Mr. Koffel said: “Tom is a gifted strategic
thinker and a financial leader in our industry. This promotion recognizes the
many valuable contributions Tom continues to make to our company, and we look
forward to him continuing to play a leading role in the growth and development
of URS.”

Commenting on Mr. Shaw, Mr. Koffel stated: “Wayne has long been a driving
force in the success of Flint and in its integration with URS. He has done an
excellent operating job as COO of our Oil & Gas division, and I am confident
he will continue to build on that success and track record in his new role as
President of the division.”
