"My accomplishments revolve around leading growth, developing people, building teams and, if I had to pick one thing in particular, safety. People talk about numbers, but any number is not okay. If it is not zero, people are still getting hurt.”
Craig L. Martin
Former President & CEO
Jacobs Engineering Group
Craig L. Martin Named Legacy Award Winner for Southern California
For nearly a half century, Craig L. Martin, former president and CEO of Dallas-based Jacobs Engineering Group, specialized in major infrastructure projects worldwide, including energy, transportation, environmental, water and wastewater, power, utilities and telecommunications.
Jay Greenspan, founder of JMJ, began working with Martin in 2003 to reduce and eliminate worker injury in heavy industrial settings.
During Martin’s leadership tenure as president and CEO of Jacobs (2006-2015), the firm joined the Fortune 500. Revenue grew to over $12 billion; workforce tripled to 65,000, with 250 offices in 30 countries. By 2010, Jacobs ranked in ENR’s list of the top 10 firms for design and construction.
In 2007, Jacobs initiated “Beyond Zero – A Culture of Caring.” The company objective was to engage the company to commit to safety through new attitudes extending beyond the office and project sites into employees’ lifestyles and their communities.
In 2019, Martin and his wife, Diane, founded the Craig and Diane Martin National Center for Construction Safety at the University of Kansas, his alma mater, with a $3.5-million endowment. The objective is to develop life-and-injury-saving ideas and technologies.
