Peter Nicol, CH2M HILL's Senior Vice President & Global Business Development Director, will participate in the CEO Roundtable in the India Business Forum. Neil Reynolds, CH2M HILL's International Operations Director of the Water Business Group, will participate in the CEO roundtable in the Middle East and North Africa Business Forum.
