"I am thrilled to join an organization that embraces a vibrant culture and forward-thinking vision," Kelley said. "I am eager to harness the team's collective strength to deliver unmatched customer experiences, forge new pathways for employee growth and development, and elevate the business to new heights that will create a lasting impact and set the standard of excellence within our industry."
Total-Western's history dates back to its creation in 1972. Through various acquisitions and organic growth in local markets, the company has continued to grow its footprint across the Western U.S.
In his new role, Kelley will be responsible for achieving organizational goals through the growth and development of Total-Western's customer base, management team, and core craft services for the Southern California and Intermountain regions of the Southern District.
"Dane is a great addition to a strong team in the South District," said Lou Hall, Chief Operations Officer for Total-Western. "His experience and qualifications will provide the leadership necessary to continue our accelerated growth in the southwestern U.S., complement our EPC capabilities, and implement strategies for expansion both geographically and within our existing service lines."
Kelley brings with him more than 15 years of management experience, having most recently worked as Service Sales Manager for Southland Industries, a design-build-maintain MEP contractor. While there, he created and implemented a sales and business development program that expanded sales, improved client satisfaction, and created a path for continued organizational growth and leadership succession.
Kelley earned his Master of Business Administration from Pepperdine University and his bachelor's degree in business administration - finance & operations management from Western Washington University.
