DENVER, Colorado – CDM Smith is proud to announce that Frank Terrasi has joined as a Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for the firm’s construc­tion unit, CDM Construc­tors Inc. Terrasi will be responsible for the unit’s operating activities including revenue and sales growth, resource management, procurement, cost and margin control, and financial goal management.
