Michael F. McNally recently retired as one of nine members of Skanska AB's Senior Executive Team responsible for Skanska's $20 billion global operations. As President and CEO of Skanska USA Inc., he was directly responsible for Skanska's US Construction Operations, USA Building, which specializes in building construction and Skanska USA Civil, which is focused on industrial and civil infrastructure work. From 2009 through 2012, Mike was also responsible for Skanska's US Commercial Development operations and all Skanska activities of its 11,000 employee Latin American unit.
Under Mike's leadership, Skanska grew and strengthen its presence in the U.S., with more than 10,000 employees in 39 offices and more than 800 active projects across the country, generating $7.3 billion in construction revenue in 2014 making the US operation the largest and most profitable in Skanska (43% of Skanska's global construction profit). Under Mike's leadership Skanska USA grew to be the second largest domestic building contractor and third largest domestic heavy civil contractor.
Mike has proven to be a strong advocate for two of Skanska's most important priorities, safety and sustainability. He played a key role in spearheading the launch of an industry-wide Safety Week, involving 31 national and global competitors who come together with the common goal of eliminating worker injury. Additionally, Mike took a public stance and pulled Skanska's membership from the US Chamber of Commerce in protest of the chamber's support of an industry group intent on undermining progress made in the area of green buildings. For his outstanding dedication to LEED, USGBC and green building, Mike received the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in the Private Sector Award in 2013.
Mike holds a BSCE degree from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from the University of Rhode Island. Mike currently sits on the following boards: State of Rhode Island Commerce Corporation, Granite Construction, and Terracon Consulting Engineers.
