A series of executive promotions will secure the next generation of leadership for Shockey Cos. concrete and construction operations, led by the naming of Jeff Boehm president of Howard Shockey & Sons Inc. and Tom McCabe president of Shockey Precast Group.

A vice president since 2004, Boehm joined Shockey Cos. in 1987 and has held operations, marketing, and management positions. He has led Howard Shockey’s efforts on several landmark construction projects, including The Village at Orchard Ridge in Winchester, the GRTC Transit Co. Headquarters in Richmond, and Western Virginia Regional Jail in Roanoke. As president, he will spearhead growth, manage business operations, and support the development of new markets.

A vice president since 1999, McCabe has served in numerous marketing, management and operational roles throughout his 31-year career at Shockey. He has been instrumental in the delivery of numerous sports facilities and parking structures, such as the Ravens NFL football stadium in Baltimore and Comcast Center Arena in College Park, Md., as well as mission critical building projects around the country.

“Jeff and Tom have ably served their respective companies, and now the time has come for them to lead us into the future. The deep knowledge they possess, both in terms of construction expertise and corporate culture, will ensure a seamless transition,” says Shockey Cos. Chairman Don Shockey.

The 118-year-old company plans to continue growing its geographic boundaries, and anticipates expansion into key market sectors, he adds, while maintaining core values of working safely; pleasing customers; treating its employees, subcontractors and suppliers fairly and ethically; and, building the highest-quality buildings.
