KBR's President and CEO Stuart Bradie said: "We are delighted to welcome Mark to KBR. Along with his extensive financial and capital markets expertise, Mark's long-time experience in the government contracting sector, including knowledge of the government services investment community, will be immensely helpful as we expand our professional service offerings. I am confident that with Mark on our team we will achieve further shareholder value and financial success going forward." 

Bradie also commended Ferraioli on his succe​ssful tenure at KBR saying, "We are grateful to Brian for his many significant contributions to KBR: overseeing all the financial affairs of the company, strengthening the company's financial management and reducing overall cost structure. I know Brian is looking forward to a much deserved retirement and we can all rest easy knowing that Mark is fully equipped to take on the task of KBR's financial leadership as our new CFO."

"I am excited to join the company and am privileged work with such a diverse business and workforce," said Mark. "KBR's recent transformative actions position the company for a new era of growth and value creation, and I believe my experience will complement our team in delivering that goal," he continued.
