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

critical market. The prominent clients developed under Mr. Izzo’s leadership have
significantly reduced Syska’s overall business concentration risk.
