Shook Construction names new chairman, CEO


One of the region’s larger construction firms on Monday named a new chief executive and a new chairman as part of a company succession plan.

Dayton-based Shook Construction Co. appointed Frank Klein, chief executive officer since 2009, as chairman of the company’s board of directors.

Bill Whistler, president since 2009, will assume the new role of president and CEO.

Both appointments take effect Jan. 1, officials said.

Shook Construction is known for number of high-profile area projects, including the Dayton Public Schools building construction program, the Miami Valley Hospital southeast addition and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and the GE Aviation EPIScenter at the University of Dayton.

Officials said Whistler will lead day-to-day operations, support the leaders of the company’s business segments, and manage relationships with banking, bonding and insurance providers as well as strategic clients.

Klein will be responsible for strategic planning and ongoing leadership development within the company.

A number of additional promotions were announced as part of the plan.

Chris Halapy, a vice president, will be promoted to executive vice president. He is based at Shook’s Cleveland office.

Mike Eckley, vice president of the education business segment, will become special adviser to Halapy.

Officials said Shook will realign the health care and education business segments under Andy Goetz, who currently serves as vice president of the health care segment.

Similarly, the company will realign the industrial, and data center and telecommunications segments under Chuck Peabody, who is based in Indianapolis and currently serves as vice president of the industrial business segment.

Mike Schmidlin, currently vice president of the data center and telecommunications segment, will support Peabody.

Founded in 1926, Shook Construction is a privately held corporation headquartered in Dayton, with offices in Cleveland, Indianapolis and Raleigh, N.C.
