Engineering News-Record has named Tim Horst, president of Becon Construction, a Bechtel subsidiary, one of its Top 25 Newsmakers of 2007 . ENR recognized Horst for his work on the Gulf Coast Workforce Development Initiative (GCWDI) and its “I’m GREAT” campaign. GCWDI was established to recruit and train construction craft workers for the U.S. Gulf Coast region, which was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Horst has been program manager for the training of nearly 16,000 people so far through the “I’m GREAT” campaign.

Bechtel joined other companies, community colleges, labor organizations, and government agencies to support the GCWDI effort.
