Heritage Construction and Materials (HC&M), a diverse and innovative collection of infrastructure related businesses, announced that as part of a year-long succession plan, Kevin Kelly will transition from his role as President of Walsh & Kelly to serving as Chairman of the Board.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to lead this company,” said Kevin Kelly. “I am incredibly proud of all we have done together, but I also look forward to stepping away from day to day responsibilities.”
With over 35 years of industry experience, John Peisker, P.E., was chosen to assume day to day leadership of the company. Peisker, who has been with Walsh & Kelly since 2015, received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois. His deep expertise in road construction and personal knowledge of the business make Peisker the ideal candidate to lead the organization into the future.
“W&K has a strong, long-standing, and proud history of providing customers quality construction for their roadways, runways, and parking lots,” said John Peisker. “We are a family business, and our co-workers are our extended family. We will continue to uphold these values and our reputation for safety, integrity, quality, and relationships.”
“Kevin has successfully led the business for 20 years and will remain available to us for continued advice, counsel and friendship. We wish him continued health and prosperity,” said HC&M CEO, Greg Kelly. “John is well regarded by colleagues, respected as an industry leader, and has the full support of the entire HC&M group as he assumes this new leadership role.”
