This March, 30 professionals from across Tetra Tech began their first session of the Tetra Tech Leadership Academy. The Class of 2017 represents the latest installment in Tetra Tech’s corporate professional development program. The Leadership Academy supports the development of outstanding business leaders, while broadening participants’ network of advisors, mentors, and colleagues.

Operating unit leaders from across the company nominate their top, rising project managers, and 30 men and women are ultimately selected by Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO Dan Batrack. Academy participants work with leading professionals from Tetra Tech’s global operations; interact with executive management; expand their knowledge of the company; and hone their operational, financial, and interpersonal skills.

The Tetra Tech Leadership Academy consists of three modules offered throughout the calendar year, focusing on our people, performance, and strategy. Members of Tetra Tech’s executive team lead each of the modules, which are tailored to the company’s business model and emphasize its 50-year history of Leading with Science®. The sessions take place at locations in the United States and Canada and focus on key elements of leadership. Each session features Tetra Tech experts on topics such as financial and risk management, contract terms and conditions, strategic growth plans, business development, and human resources. As part of the Academy, participants will increase their understanding of corporate structure and functions, knowledge that is crucial for the company’s future leaders.

After completing the program, Academy alumni are tasked with special assignments, participation in corporate initiatives, and collaboration on strategic pursuits. Nearly 120 employees from across Tetra Tech’s markets and geographies have completed the year-long program since its inception in 2013.

“I have been very impressed by the caliber of the Academy’s participants, and look forward to seeing their continued development and contributions to Tetra Tech’s future success,” said CEO Dan Batrack.
