Cole & Associates announced the addition of Tom Reynolds as its newest shareholder of the company.
Reynolds began working at Cole in 2006, where he worked as an Instrument Man, an entry level position in our survey department. He soon identified a career path and took the opportunities available to advance his knowledge of the field by completing his degree and licensure, while continuing to work at Cole. As a valuable member of the company, Reynolds now serves as the Survey Manager in our St. Louis office and has completed survey projects across the country in conjunction with Cole’s other offices.
“Tom is a perfect example of the character and work ethic that embodies Cole. It is with great pleasure that we congratulate Tom and welcome him to the shareholder’s circle,” said Kevin Riggs, President/CEO.
Since the late 1990s when the company’s founder Mel Cole put the firm’s shareholder agreement in place, Cole has seen many of its company leaders take part in this incredible opportunity. This speaks volumes for the success and integrity of the firm, its shareholders and its employees, Riggs said.
Current shareholders include Riggs; Lisa Baker, CFO; Jeremy Roach, Director of Planning and Landscape Architecture; Terry Westerman, Survey Manager; and the Cole’s three Vice Presidents of Regional Operations – Jim Roth in Phoenix; John Harshbarger in St. Charles and St. Louis; and Sandy Stephens in Dallas.
