Malcolm McLaren, PE, Founder and Chairman, is pleased to announce the next phase of McLaren Engineering Group’s succession plan with the appointment of Jeremy Billig, PE, current President, to the role of CEO. Billig will be taking the helm of McLaren’s operational structure as Mal shifts into a new strategic position as Executive Chairman of the Board.

The anticipated transition of both roles signifies a rollout of a strengthened future vision for out-of-the-box thinking and technical excellence with a tactical emphasis on process and technological advances. Built upon McLaren’s hallmarks of responsiveness and applied ingenuity, we are poised for the next phase of growth and expansion as we continue our trajectory into a built environment staple.

In Malcolm McLaren’s new role as Executive Chairman of the Board, he will provide strategic oversight as he leads the firm’s Board of Directors, while directing the absorption of innovative technology and overseeing complex projects.

“I started McLaren Engineering Group when I was 25 years old with a slide rule in one hand and a SCUBA tank in the other,” comments Malcolm McLaren, PE. “Four and a half decades later, I’m proud to say the firm has developed beyond my expectations by responding to our clients’ needs and pushing the envelope technically. Over the past few years, we have focused on building an organization that is nimble, flexible, and primed for growth. It is an honor to hand the reins to Jeremy, who is a brilliant, meticulous, and process-driven trailblazer. Under his direction and foresight, I know the next generation of leadership will amplify our core values while bringing the team to new heights.”

“Building upon the entrepreneurial roots Mal planted, I aim to bolster McLaren’s reputation of out-of-the-box thinking and technical excellence with a tactical emphasis on process and technological advances,” says Billig. “As we earn more accolades as a top engineering firm, our hallmarks of responsiveness and applied ingenuity will continue to lay the foundation for our next phase of growth and expansion. Throughout my career, Mal has been an exemplary leader, mentor, and engineer. Since founding the firm in his basement in 1977, he has propelled us to the forefront of the AEC industry. As CEO, I will be expanding on this foundation and ushering in a new chapter with a defined direction.”
