ITEM 5.02.


On September 15, 2022, Jacobs Solutions Inc. (the “Company”) announced that Bob Pragada, currently President and Chief Operating Officer, will succeed Steve Demetriou as Chief Executive Officer and join the Company’s Board of Directors. Mr. Demetriou, currently Chair and Chief Executive Officer, will continue as Executive Chair of the Board of Directors. The changes are effective January 24, 2023, the date of the Company’s annual shareholder meeting. It is expected that Mr. Demetriou will serve as Executive Chair for a minimum of two years.

Mr. Pragada rejoined the Company in 2016 after serving as President and Chief Executive Officer of The Brock Group, one of the largest providers of industrial services in North America, for approximately two years. Prior to that, Mr. Pragada worked in various executive and senior management capacities with Jacobs beginning in 2006. He has served as the President and COO of the Company since 2019. Mr. Pragada also serves on the board of directors of Eaton (NYSE: ETN).

Each of Mr. Pragada and Mr. Demetriou participates in the Company’s Leadership Performance Plan (the “Plan”), the Company’s long-term equity incentive plan, the Company’s Executive Severance Plan and the Company’s Executive Deferral Plan in connection with their current roles, and will continue to be eligible to participate in such plans in their new roles. Any changes in base salary, the incentive target under the Plan and the amount of the fiscal 2023 equity incentive grant will be determined and approved by the Human Resource and Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors in November 2022.

There are no arrangements or understandings between either Mr. Pragada or Mr. Demetriou and any other persons pursuant to which each was appointed as an officer or director of the Company (other than arrangements or understandings with directors or officers of the Company acting solely in their capacities as such). There are also no family relationships between either Mr. Pragada or Mr. Demetriou and any director or executive officer of the Company, and neither Mr. Pragada nor Mr. Demetriou is party to or has any direct or indirect material interest in any transaction requiring disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
