Today is DT Global’s one year anniversary. On July 26, 2019 we launched DT Global, bringing together the legacy companies that comprised AECOM’s International Development services sector, Development Transformations, and all the entities that went before them – PADCO, ACE Consultants, parts of URS, The Services Group, and more. All told, our legacy companies bring together a rich history of over 50 years of implementing groundbreaking programs, improving lives, and transforming communities. As I like to think about it, today we are one year old, but 50+ years strong, and I consider myself privileged to be trusted with leading our incredible team through this first year.

DT Global is so much more than the sum of its parts. Over the past 365 days, my esteemed colleagues have come together to establish us as an independent international development company, ensuring that we maintained the technical excellence we are known for even while establishing a new company and culture rooted in the core values of integrity, diversity and inclusion, learning and adaptation, innovation, technical excellence, and collaboration. 

I am thrilled to have been a part of this journey so far, and I am very proud of how much we have accomplished. As we celebrate our one year anniversary, I would like to reflect on the many milestones and successes we have had, the systems we have established, the team we have built, and the communities, partners, and clients we have had the honor to support. Even in the face of a once in a lifetime pandemic, we have risen to the occasion. Our entire global team has adapted, shifting our programs to help our local communities and partners above and beyond our existing contracts and scopes of work. Together, we have found new ways to work and collaborate, fulfilling our promises to our clients and partners around the world. See below for an infographic highlighting just some of these accomplishments.

As we enter into a new year and look towards the future, I see only growth and opportunity ahead. But most of all, I am excited to be on this adventure with such a strong, smart, collaborative team alongside me.

Happy anniversary, DT Global.


Thank you for your support,
