Cyrus Izzo

Cyrus Izzo is the Co-President of SH Group, Inc. and of Syska Hennessy Group, Inc. He has over 25 years of management level experience, including extensive involvement in all aspects of major building systems, incorporating a comprehensive approach blending facilities management, MEP/FP design, IT, security and commissioning.

Mr. Izzo joined Syska Hennessy Group in 1993 from Ammann & Whitney, Inc., a renowned AE firm headquartered in New York City.

In 2005, Mr. Izzo accepted the challenge of conceptually designing and managing the formation of the first major national market focused business unit for Syska, the Critical Facilities practice. Under his leadership, the Critical Facilities practice has become the premier market leader in technical thought leadership within the International mission critical market. The prominent clients developed under Mr. Izzo’s leadership have significantly reduced Syska’s overall business concentration risk.

In 2007, Mr. Izzo accepted the role of Co-President of SH Group and Syska Hennessy Group. In this role, he supports the development of a collaborative management team that is more diverse in practice and that will contribute even more to the long term global expansion of the firm.
