Associate, Core Team Leader

Denver, CO

Lindsay Kenney has been a process engineer and project manager at CRB for over 18 years, serving clients in various industries, including food, chemical, pharmaceutical and biotech. Kenney’s experience includes process engineering, process modeling and project management as well as commissioning/startup and validation of process and process utility systems. Her specialized knowledge and desire to assist clients with difficult projects have earned her the reputation of being a leader in her field.

“It’s been exciting to witness the changes in the biopharmaceutical industry over the course of my career. I have not only seen a progressive demand for technical excellence in a complex field but also an emphasis on project execution and delivery. I’ve always appreciated how CRB values both technical quality and professional development and project management and execution. Using these skills and fostering a collaborative team environment with our clients is how we address the demands of each and every project.”

In addition to developing her skills as a process engineer, Kenney has focused her path on leadership and career development both for herself and others. Her primary focus has been on capital project management, coordinating multidisciplinary teams on highly technical projects, including several in the oligonucleotide industry. With the increased demands for facility capacity and speed to market, Kenney understands the needs of clients to have quality, high-capacity production facilities with ever-increasing pressures on overall project timelines.


Lindsay took over as Business Operations Lead for the Denver office for CRB in 2017, leading a team of 25 architects and engineers.  The team serves various clients in the front range, specializing in biotech, active pharmaceutical ingredients, specialty chemical, and cell and gene therapy industries. Kenney is fortunate to not only be a part of these exciting markets in the front range but a part of the career development of a very talented and motivated team.

A past recipient of the Engineering-News Record’s top 20 under 40 award, Kenney has served on the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering Rocky Mountain Chapter board of directors for five years and has served as the chapter president, the first woman to be named as such. “Colorado is such an exciting place for our industry and one of the fastest-growing areas for high-tech startups. I want to make sure the region remains a hotbed for the industry,” Kenney said.

Kenney earned her Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering from Washington University in St. Louis in 2002. A Midwest native, Kenney began her career with CRB at the firm’s St. Louis office and is currently located in Denver.
