U.S. Engineering announces the promotion of Rebecca David to Chief People Officer of U.S. Engineering Company Holdings, effective immediately.
Joining the company in 2007, David successfully built the Human Resources program at U.S. Engineering from the ground up. She quickly built relationships throughout the organization and pushed all of us to think about how we could further empower team members.
Since then David has taken the lead on numerous transformative initiatives at U.S. Engineering, including professional development programs, the internship and externship program, the high-performance culture strategic initiative and an internal recognition and performance feedback platform. In addition to the large projects, she has improved and advanced administrative functions across our companies. CEO Tyler Nottberg remarked, “Anybody who has worked with Rebecca knows how deeply she cares about all our team members. She understands what we do, but more importantly, she understands who we are and what we want to be in the future. Her tireless work on behalf of the organization has made all of us better.”
Outside of U.S. Engineering, David is dedicated to serving others in the community. She is a current Kansas City Symphony Business Council Member, a KC Chamber Executive Women’s Leadership Council Member, an American Heart Association “Go Red for Women” Executive Leadership Team Member, a Jackson County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Board Member and a UMKC Bloch School of Management HR Advisory Board Member. In past years she has participated as the Jackson County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Board Development Committee Chair, a Kansas City Symphony Alliance (KCSA) Board Member, and a Blue Springs School District Music Boosters Board Member. This year she was recognized by The Kansas City Business Journal as a Woman Who Means Business, a designation highlighting 25 women in the Kansas City area for their career accomplishments and contributions to the Kansas City business community.
As Chief People Officer, David will be responsible for more strategic efforts in the areas of cultural stewardship, succession planning and management and leadership development. She will serve as a trusted partner to the Presidents and Vice Presidents in all U.S. Engineering companies and will continue to Leave a Legacy in this organization and beyond.
