Time and time again, PSMJ research shows that transition planning is one of the biggest long-term challenges facing A/E/C firm leaders.

Many are struggling to answer the question of who will run their firm tomorrow. But, instead of taking action to develop and implement a proven transition plan, too many firm leaders are putting it off...instead staying focused on near-term client demands, keeping backlog high, and other day-to-day priorities. However, ignoring transition planning puts the firm's capitalization, clients, and employees in great jeopardy...to say nothing of the evaporating shareholder value that is a near certainty.

Brian Burnett

Senior Consultant

Brian Burnett joined the ranks of PSMJ consultants after a 34-year career at a mid-size engineering firm, where he was President/CEO since 2003. He is now helping leaders understand and implement best practices for internal leadership and ownership transitions. Brian’s real-world experience with leadership and ownership transitions comes from having been a part of his former company’s four major leadership transitions in the firm’s 58-year history. In 1985, Brian became a partner and Vice-President when the founder of the company retired. In 1997, Brian became President when the current President at the time died tragically. In 2003, Brian became the President/CEO upon the retirement of a 40-year corporate leader. From 2013 to 2017, Brian was responsible for helping the company replace and transition nine major leadership positions, including his CEO position. Overseeing this final transition required extensive planning and leadership development over an eight-year period prior to Brian retiring in June 2017.
