Jacksonville-based Haskell appointed James “Jim” O’Leary as president, succeeding Steve Halverson, who will remain chairman and CEO.

O’Leary also remains chief operating officer.

Halverson was president and CEO for 18 years.

Haskell is a global architecture, engineering, construction and consulting firm.

“Steve’s tenure has been a master class in thriving during dynamic market cycles, strengthening and growing the enterprise, and always staying focused on the best client outcomes,” O’Leary said in a news release.

Halverson was appointed president in August 1999 by company founder Preston Haskell, who established the company in 1965.

“Jim O’Leary is the right leader to guide Haskell to a future larger than its past,” Halverson said.

During Halverson’s 18 years, Haskell made strategic acquisitions and initiatives resulting in a fully integrated architecture, engineering and construction firm with 1,352 employees in 20 offices in the U.S. along with offices in Mexico and Asia.

The news release said the company expects to record new sales of more than $1 billion, serving clients in markets including consumer packaged goods, federal, health care, energy, infrastructure and transportation.
