Fall 2021 Distinguished Service Award Presented to Katy Johansson

We are excited to present Katy Johansson with the 2021 CII Distinguished Service Award!

The Distinguished Service Award is the only CII Leadership Award selected by the CII staff. The recipient must have been a chair or co-chair of a CII standing committee or team, and have demonstrated a strong and lasting commitment to the mission and objectives of CII and to moving the industry forward.

Please join us in congratulating Katy!

Katy has been a dedicated CII volunteer for 20 years! She works for ExxonMobil Corporation’s Project Services Division, as their Benchmarking Global Technology Sponsor.

Katy earned her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Rochester, and worked in that field, but eventually made her way to capital projects. She has played a huge role in improving Exxon’s project performance over the last two decades.

She's been on three different research teams at CII. One of Katy’s first volunteer opportunities in CII was being a part of Research Team 192: Engineering Productivity Measures. Their primary objective was to continue development of a standardized productivity measurement methodology. After that, she held the Board Advisor seat for ExxonMobil for three years while also contributing her time and talent to RT-280 (Applying Probabilistic Controls in Construction) and RT 282 (Managing Indirect Costs).

In 2016, Katy joined CII’s Performance Assessment Committee and after a couple of years, became the Chair of this group. She has remained committed to improving CII’s Benchmarking offering and has faithfully served the membership by leading the effort to improve the way we capture, analyze and report data.
Most recently, Katy was one of the essential leads in the launch of CII’s Data Warehouse. The CII members and staff working on this initiative said she was such a supportive leader in her role on the Benchmarking Advisors Group and Technology Advisory Group (BAG/TAG).
In addition to leading the BAG/TAG, today Katy is active in CII’s Deployment Committee, Data Analytics CBA and supported the Data Warehouse launch with a presentation on stage.

Every time CII has reached out, Katy has graciously helped our team and the members – and always provides great insights and guidance.

Please join us in thanking Katy for her service and congratulating her for being chosen to receive this award.
