Shook Promotes Several Long-Time Employees

Shook Construction announces several leadership transitions as the company grows within its water/wastewater construction groups.

Promotions (Joe Mellon, Eric Rees, Riley Tolen, Tim Myers)

Tim Myers will transition out of his operations role and into preconstruction. His new focus will be picking up new water/wastewater treatment plant work in the quantity and frequency that our growth plan for the water resources market channel requires. Tim has been part of the Shook family for 32 years.

Stepping up as executive vice president is Joe Mellon, who is a 24-year veteran of Shook Construction. In his new role, Joe will support the company’s water resource business segment leaders in completing work under contract, as well as growing market share.

Project Manager Eric Rees has been promoted to vice president of the water resources Midwest region business segment. Having spent his entire 22-year career at Shook, Eric will oversee all water and wastewater construction projects specifically in southern Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.

Project Manager Riley Tolen has been promoted to vice president of the water resources Mid-Atlantic region. Similar to those noted above, Riley has been with the company his entire career. He replaces Jon Powelson who is retiring from this role after a 30-year-long career with Shook.

“My sincere congratulations goes out to each of these key business unit leaders,” shares President and CEO Bill Whistler. “As one can clearly see, we continue to build from within and thus leverage the great talent within our company.”
