URS Corporation (NYSE:URS) today announced that Timothy R. McLevish, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Kraft Foods Group, Inc., and former Chief Financial Officer of Kraft Foods, Inc. (predecessor to Kraft Foods Group, Inc.), Ingersoll-Rand and Mead Corporation, has joined the URS Board of Directors, effective immediately.

Martin M. Koffel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of URS, stated: “We are pleased to welcome Tim McLevish to our Board of Directors. With more than a decade of experience as chief financial officer of leading global companies, he has deep knowledge of financial reporting, internal controls and procedures and risk management, as well as a keen understanding of business strategy in a range of fast-moving, highly-competitive industries. We look forward to his valuable insights and counsel as a Board member.”

Mr. McLevish stated: “I am delighted to be joining the URS Board and look forward to working with the other Directors and the Company’s management team to build on URS’ record of delivering growth and to generate value for the Company’s stockholders. With its leading positions across multiple attractive markets, URS is well positioned for the future, and I am committed to doing what I can as a Director to help the Company achieve its potential.”
