The parent company of WW Clyde, Geneva Rock, Sunroc, Sunpro and Scott Contracting has announced three executive promotions within its Intermountain State construction materials and road building operations. Jeremy Hafen, who during a 16-year tenure has led Clyde Business Group, Sunroc Corp. and Sunroc Building Materials, has been appointed Clyde Companies president. He assumes most duties of Clyde/Geneva Group President Jeff Clyde, who has retired after nearly four decades with the business. Jim Golding, president and 37-year veteran of Geneva Rock, has been appointed Clyde Companies Construction Materials and Services Group president. His successor is Jay Ritchie, transitioning from an executive vice president post. All will continue reporting to Chairman, CEO and President Wilford Clyde.

“These changes reflect a thoughtful and strategic approach to long-term growth and succession planning for the entire organization,” says Hafen. “We honor the leaders who have guided the organization to become what it is today, and are confident the future of Clyde Companies continues to be very bright as we remain committed to our core values and long-standing principles.”

The executive transition dovetails a Clyde Companies stock deal for Denver-based concrete pavement contractor Interstate Highway Construction. An integration process has commenced with a merging of the business and Scott Contracting, a Denver neighbor acquired in 2018, to form IHC Scott Inc. “We are confident this acquisition will strengthen our company’s strategic growth throughout the Intermountain West as we continue to operate committed to our mission statement, ‘Building a Better Community,'” Hafen affirms.
