Street Lee Named McKim & Creed CEO
RALEIGH, NC — The board of directors of McKim & Creed is pleased to announce that Street Lee, PE, ENV SP has been appointed the company’s next Chief Executive Officer, effective January 1. John T. Lucey, Jr., PE, McKim & Creed’s CEO since 2014, will continue to serve in the role of Chairman of the Board.
