Chad Coldiron

Zweig Group, a full-service AEC management advisory firm, announced its executive search team has successfully placed Brian Myller with its client ADEC Innovations as president of its global Professional Services businesses. As a leader of practices, initiatives, and business units at several of the country’s largest environmental science and engineering firms, Myller will have overall responsibility for leading the global growth strategy across ADEC Innovations’ Professional Services brands and businesses.

Zweig Group’s executive search team, led by Chad Coldiron – a principal and director of executive search at Zweig Group – completed this search for ADEC Innovations.

"One of the most difficult recruiting scenarios a professional services firm can be involved with is successfully bringing in a top-level leader from outside of the organization. That process becomes even more difficult when firms lead this process from an internal lens. It goes well beyond a candidate’s past experience and technical skills – it takes a nuanced approach to find the right fit to lead your organization," Coldiron said. "Brian has impacted some of the most well-known professional services firms in the world and we are excited to see what’s next as he joins the ADEC Innovations family of companies."

 ADEC Innovations designs, develops and delivers innovative solutions and services in ESG, knowledge management, healthcare, and sustainable development. Prior to joining ADEC Innovations, Myller has led successful staff and technical practice development, discipline integration, technology innovation, and business development initiatives at a number of environmental science and engineering firms.

“Brian’s experience demonstrates a passion for innovation and staff development that strongly aligns with our goals and business philosophy of making a difference while working in a collaborative, team-oriented environment,” said James Donovan, global CEO of ADEC Innovations. “We are confident that Brian will successfully lead our Professional Services businesses through our next phase of growth by applying his holistic perspective for cross-connecting disciplines, services, and people that strengthen the value we provide our clients and society.”
