Rosendin Names Greenawalt CEO as Part of 2020 Succession Plan

PHOENIX, AZ — Rosendin, an employee-owned firm in the electrical contracting industry, announces it will promote Mike Greenawalt to Chief Executive Officer as part of the 2020 Executive Leadership Succession Plan, replacing Tom Sorley, who is retiring after 26 years at the helm. Greenawalt will become part of the new Executive Committee, along with four other leaders who are replacing retiring company executives.

The retiring executives have more than 100 years of experience at Rosendin combined. To ensure a smooth transition during a time of rapid growth, they will remain with Rosendin through 2020, providing support and mentoring for the new executive team, and a bridge for business partners.

“Realizing that our C-Suite executives were considering retirement around the same time, we decided the best thing for both our customers and our employees was to announce our succession plan early,” said Sorley, who will remain Executive Chairman of the Board. “Allowing for longer transitions helps promote stability, while also giving the new leadership team more time to refine their processes and to focus on their team priorities that will take our company forward into the next 100 years.”

Sorley continued saying, “Mike’s contributions over his career helped solidify Rosendin as an important player nationally in the construction industry. He embraces new technology and has developed advancements that are having significant influence throughout the commercial construction industry. As I began considering retirement, I knew that Mike was the right person to assume my role as CEO because, in addition to building upon what we’ve already achieved, he’ll continue to innovate and take the company to even greater heights.”

Greenawalt has over 40 years of construction industry experience beginning his career as an Apprentice Electrician. He joined Rosendin in 2002 as a Division Manager in the Arizona office and grew the office and team, becoming Vice President of Operations. Greenawalt’s management and field experience have provided him with the skillset and expertise to grow highly technical and effective operations teams across the country. As Chief Executive Officer, Greenawalt will continue to build on Rosendin’s foundations to lead, inspire and build while positioning the company as an industry leader.

“Having started my career as an apprentice, I know what it’s like to wake up in the dark and drive to a job site, and I know what it’s like to sit in an office with a bid due date the next day,” Greenawalt said. “I understand the effect that a seemingly small decision has on employees at all levels of the company, as well as the effect it has on our customers and partners. I’m committed to carrying this perspective with me as we focus on the next 100 years of Rosendin to make sure we have the talent, resources and processes in place to take advantage of the many growth opportunities we’re seeing across the country.”
