Clarice Kinsella, P.E., has joined HDR, one of the largest employee-owned companies in the United States, to lead growth across the industrial, mining, power, oil and gas, and waste markets. She becomes the firm’s third program management director.

Kinsella comes to HDR after more than 20 years of program management and project management office experience in the energy industry. She has built a strong reputation in leading clients toward development of transformative strategies.

She is also a strong advocate for women and strives to make a difference in her local community. In 2020, she received a STEMMy from Central Exchange in the rising trendsetter category. And she is an alumna of Leadership Missouri, where she and a team of business leaders explored how economic development locally had a much further reach into the world economy.

“Our world has become more complex with rapidly evolving market conditions and technologies; it’s impossible for one person to know it all,” Kinsella said. “Collaborating — vertically and horizontally — and knowledge sharing have become paramount to success.”

Kinsella will work with Julie Labonte, P.E., water program management director, and Erin Slayton, P.E., DBIA, ENV SP, transportation program management director.

HDR’s program management Services is a multidisciplinary service involving the controlled implementation of a wide range of public and private infrastructure programs throughout the U.S. and abroad. These services, which are tailored to each client's specific needs, are designed to drive delivery certainty and efficiencies, control risks and facilitate sound decisions — all aimed at creating the most value for HDR's clients. Recent efforts include the $1.7 billion Arizona DOT South Mountain Freeway Project and the $2.2 billion Advanced Wastewater Treatment Program for the Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District.

Kinsella has advised some of the world’s largest utilities on how to use new technology to increase efficiency of project and construction management, which is what she will do for HDR across power, industrial and waste markets around the globe.
