Hard work doesn’t go unnoticed at Shook.
In January, it was announced that Chris Shafer would assume the role of CFO. In his new position, he will also oversee risk management, human resources, and information technology.
“Chris embodies our core values,” shares Executive Vice President Chris Halapy. “It’s important to us to first look within to fill leadership roles so that we can maintain our culture as we continue to grow.”
Shafer is a Certified Public Accountant and has 20 years of experience. He joined the company in 2014 as a controller, then was promoted to director of finance. Since then, the company has experienced substantial growth thus creating many opportunities for its own employees to step up into new leadership roles.
“This is an exciting time for the company,” says President and CEO Bill Whistler. “Through this period of significant growth, Chris has shown an acute awareness of the financial intricacies of our business and the construction industry as a whole. Combine that with his innate leadership skills, and he was the perfect fit to step up into our CFO role.”
We are confident that he will contribute to the continued prosperity of the company and another successful 93 years.
