In 2005, Cyrus founded Syska’s first global practice, Critical Facilities, which led to the firm’s ranking by Engineering News-Record as one of the top three mission-critical engineering firms in the world. Under Cyrus’s guidance, the practice has designed core systems for some of the world’s most important data centers and trading floors. He continues to be a hands-on leader, managing several of the firm’s key client relationships and projects with organizations such as JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, and Microsoft.
