Gold Mechanical makes key hires

Posted online

Gold Mechanical Inc. has made two key hires that would help the Springfield mechanical contracting company "sustain our momentum," its CEO says.

Angie Way has been hired as the company's chief financial officer, effective May 1, and Carl Kicklighter started April 2 as construction manager, said CEO Ron Bogart.

"We are extremely blessed to welcome these proven leaders to our executive team," Bogart said via email. "With a strong team already in place at Gold, and having achieved a 25% growth last year, their extensive experience is exactly what we need to sustain our momentum. Both individuals are of the highest caliber, and we couldn't be more pleased to have them on board."

Way is set to join Gold Mechanical from Springfield architectural firm BRP Architects, where she also serves as CFO. Way's LinkedIn profile indicates she's worked ats the architecture firm for 20 years.

Bogart said Way would focus on financial management and risk management. The CFO responsibilities previously were held by the controller, he said, noting both roles now exist at the company.

Kicklighter is taking over the responsibilities of Cliff Buchannan, who is set to retire in July when he turns 70, Bogart said.

Kicklighter's role as construction manager involves spearheading Gold Mechanical's largest business unit, Bogart said, with oversight of projects in a four-state region. Kicklighter, who was Plant Manager of the Year for Springfield Business Journal's Coolest Things Made in the Ozarks event this year, previously served as plant operations director for Vital Farms of Missouri LLC before he left the role in February.
