With K2 Design and Fabrication’s continued growth as a company, it was time to make the addition of a new project manager. K2 believes in having employees with great work ethic and proficient skills to help run a well-oiled facility. This was no exception in hiring their new Project Manager, Jim Roberts (photo right).
Jim Roberts has extensive and relevant skills from his 20+ years of experience working at companies that include Sparks, GES, and DisplayWorks as an industry related builder, production manager, estimator, and specific to his current role – a project manager.
K2 knows a project manager needs to be on his or her toes at all times – being able to keep up with this fast-paced industry, be well-organized, be team-oriented, have leadership qualities, and can communicate effectively with the team and the clients. K2 is pleased to have hired on Jim Roberts who fulfills this role within the company.
David King, president and co-founder of K2 Design and Fabrication, shares K2’s excitement to have Jim Roberts join their team, “Jim brings value to the team with his skills. We’re excited to have him on board. Project managers have an integral role to oversee each project and help ensure everything runs smoothly – which is important for us and our clients.”
Also, in other K2 news, K2’s Controller, Louis Boish, with 25 years under his belt as a Controller and having been with K2 since inception, is readying for retirement this spring.
“We all appreciate what Louis has brought to K2 throughout the years (particularly his friendship and voice of reason!) and wish Louis all the best,” said Claudia King, CFO and co-owner of K2 Design and Fabrication.
Though Louis, as well as his expertise, will be missed at K2, they are pleased to announce Nancy Risher, accounting manager at K2, will be taking over many of Louis’s responsibilities, and they feel very confident about the transition.
Nancy came to K2 with an impressive background of education and certifications that helps her be well equipped for this task. She has a BS in Organizational Management from Nyack College, has a Certificate in Middle Management from Columbia University, as well as earning licenses as Registered Representative, Real Estate Agent and Certified Tax Preparer.
Not only has Nancy proven herself capable and driven during her tenure at K2, but she has extensive experience and titles she has earned that lends to her skills in accounting and management. This experience ranges from being assistant vice president of operations at Shearson/American Express, the fiscal director of Discipleship Outreach Ministries, director of accounting at Westways Staffing Agency, to the current position of accounting manager at K2.
She has had leadership and training experiences that include accomplishing the Series 7 Exam through the Investment Manager Training, being an elder at Discipleship Chapel, having multiple trainings in fundraising, bookkeeping, accounting, sales and marketing, and more.
K2 has been more than happy with Nancy’s work ethic, proficiency, and ability for strong leadership while at K2, and believes she is strongly suited for these added responsibilities.
K2 congratulates Louis and Nancy as he begins his new journey into retirement, and she moves on to grow within the company and continue her success at K2.
