Chrissy Thom

As Senior Vice President & General Manager, Americas - East, Chrissy Thom challenges today by being an authentic leader with demonstrated strength in global and cultural inclusion and connectivity. She brings experience grounded in all facets of our business – operations, sales, project delivery and solutions & technology.

With a technical background in biology, Chrissy spent her formative years researching how restored ecosystems can build resilience in our coastal communities. As a leader, Chrissy has leveraged her scientific training to help teams build an integrated approach like working on the complex interactions and patterns of an ecosystem. She focuses on connecting with people with different areas of expertise and how we can ignite solutions that inspire. Key focus areas include: technical career development and leadership, inclusion and diversity, leveraging global connectivity, innovation, growth and sales, and delighting clients with excellent delivery experiences. With a variety of roles throughout her career, her passion is project delivery, and nothing is more important than building the best talent and solutions to earn our clients' trust.

As a demonstration of Chrissy’s standout accomplishments in innovation and technology growth, she was asked to do something new for the company in 2020 during the height of the pandemic and lead a cross-market strategy to rapidly address our client’s dynamic challenges. She developed a plan that ensured Jacobs was able to bring timely thought leadership and next generation support to our clients and employees during a highly uncertain and challenging time. Chrissy’s plan included the building blocks that shaped Jacobs’ Boldly Moving Forward Strategy.

With a focus on building customer relationships and leading through collaboration and talent development, Chrissy collaborates with Jacobs’ team of diverse subject matter experts across all markets to proactively bring end to end solutions to projects in communities around the world.

“Across the diverse markets and geographies we serve, I am proud of Jacobs reputation as a trusted partner that our clients and communities rely on when the stakes are highest. It is the people and our innovative culture that make it happen, and my job is to unlock their potential.”
