Okelberry will take on a restructured role of Jim Golding, President of the Construction Materials & Services Group at Clyde Companies, who retired at the end of 2021.
Golding began his career with Clyde Companies in 1984 as a Civil Engineer at Geneva Rock Products. He quickly progressed from Vice President of Construction to Chief Operations Officer/Executive Vice President, and then President of Geneva Rock before taking his latest role at Clyde Companies.
Since 2019, Okelberry has been serving as President of Sunroc, and he previously worked as Vice President/COO of sister company WW Clyde. He began working for WW Clyde in 1992, advancing in the company before ultimately transitioning to Sunroc.
Okelberry has a bachelor’s degree in construction management and a master’s degree in business administration from Brigham Young University.
“I am honored by the board’s trust in me to take on this new role,” Okelberry said. “Constructing the infrastructure of our communities is a passion of mine. This role gives me an opportunity to contribute in a way that will improve the quality of life in our communities for generations to come.”
Elder will be promoted from Vice President of the Idaho region of Sunroc, a position he has held since 2019. He started his career at sister company Geneva Rock in 2004 and transferred to Sunroc two years later, advancing to his current role.
Elder earned a bachelor’s degree in construction management from Brigham Young University and a master’s degree in business administration from Boise State.
Rather than replace Elder’s former position, Sunroc’s three remaining Vice Presidents, Mark Wimmer, Vice President of Construction; Russell Leslie, Vice President of Construction Materials; and the newly appointed Vice President of Masonry, Ryan Dalling, will take on expanded roles to encompass Elder’s responsibilities in Idaho.
“I’m grateful for this new opportunity to serve as President of Sunroc,” Elder said. “I appreciate the vote of confidence I’ve received from our leaders at Clyde Companies. I’m passionate about our success at Sunroc, and I look forward to leading the company along the same path of success as those before me.”
The announced restructuring and organizational changes represent the evolution and continued growth of Clyde Companies and its subsidiaries.
