(RTTNews.com) - Exponent, Inc. ( EXPO ), an engineering and scientific consulting firm, announced late Thursday that its Board of Directors intends to appoint President Catherine Ford Corrigan, 49, as its Chief Executive Officer and President.

The appointment will be made at its board meeting following the annual shareholder meeting on May 31, 2018. Exponent's current Chief Executive Officer, Paul Johnston, 64, is expected to become Chairman of the Board of Directors at that time.

Johnston will also continue in an executive role to assist in the transition, on a half-time basis for twelve months. He was COO between 2003 and 2009 and as CEO since then.

Corrigan joined Exponent 21 years ago and has assumed increasingly responsible positions over time. Most recently as President, she is responsible for management of all of the Company's consulting groups and business development activities.

Johnston said, "It is with great confidence and pleasure that I transition the chief executive role to Catherine. She has demonstrated tremendous leadership as she has risen through the organization. Catherine has earned the respect of our employees and clients. She is the right person to lead our firm into the future."
