CH2M HILL spins off Critigen, a critical infrastructure company

Denver, October 19, 2009 – Critigen, a global technology consultancy for critical infrastructure, today announced its entry into the market as a privately held company.

Recently divested from CH2M HILL’s 62-year, $6.4 billion engineering business, the independent company emerges with domain expertise combined with technology-based approaches for the critical infrastructure market.

Critigen serves both public and private-sector clients, including government, state, local, engineering firms and financial institutions with technology-based approaches to support the delivery of essential services.

Critigen’s client roster touches every sector of critical infrastructure – energy, water, facilities, government, financial, commercial, transportation and emergency response – with nearly 700 global employees allowing clients to visualize, collaborate, secure and manage their information.

Critigen’s clients include the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force as well as Genworth Financial, the Wyoming Dept. of Environmental Quality and carbon-neutral city Masdar, located in the UAE. In addition, one of Critigen’s largest clients is CH2M HILL with which it holds a three-year preferred provider agreement.

The company is now owned by Golden Gate Capital, a private equity investment specializing in the IT industry with about $8 billion of capital under management.
