"Joining AECOM will provide an excellent opportunity to expand our client offerings -- by practice area and geographically," he said. "The scale and scope of a global leader like AECOM will also benefit our employees through increased professional development opportunities." Petrocelli will take on a broader leadership role within AECOM's combined water business. He will also join the AECOM Leadership Council.

The investment banking firm of Farlie Turner advised Boyle on the transaction. This acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by Boyle shareholders and necessary regulatory approvals.
