Power 100 list

Robert M. Scaer, PE

Chairman of the Board and CEO

Gannett Fleming Inc.

As chairman and CEO, he formulates and implements the strategic plan that guides the direction of Gannett Fleming and drives the firm’s continued growth and expansion into new markets. Scaer said the firm is committed to “our continued diversification of services, being an employer of choice, and being a thought leader across our industry”.

He’s been chairman and CEO since January 2017, but had five other careers during his time at Gannett Fleming.

From 2002 to 2009, Scaer served as president of GeoDecisions, Gannett Fleming’s geospatial and IT solutions division. During that time, he testified before Congress on the use of geospatial technology in homeland security, and the company built an application that integrates transportation, logistics, in-transit visibility and infrastructure data in a single, secure application.

Life lesson’s he’s learned: Al of life is so precious; it can change in a moment. You can never take anything for granted and need to make sure you enjoy the ride. No matter what happens, you must be willing to change and adapt and see the blessings in every day.

He loves to hike! Most weekends, you can find Scaer on a local trail. “I’ve traveled to some pretty amazing places with Gannett Fleming, so I take advantage of the local scenery when I can. Some of my favorite hikes include the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and Colorado Springs,” he said.
