February 3, 2012 — Lamar, Mo. — Finley Engineering, a leading end-to-end consulting engineering firm with interests in the telecommunications and utility industries, will be undergoing key management changes after the announcement that Rod Christenson, president and CEO, will be retiring at the end of 2012. Mike Boehne, current vice president of Marketing and Business Development, will assume the roles of president and chief operating officer, with responsibility for managing the day-to-day operations of the company.
Finley’s record growth over the past three years has secured client broadband and power-engineering engagements with total project costs exceeding $250 million. “This record growth for Finley requires that we strategically plan our future, and I see no better candidate to help manage that growth than Mike Boehne,” says Christenson. “Our record of achievement has been extraordinary and is a direct result of our committed team.”
Christenson will continue as CEO, directing the overall corporate functions of the company until his retirement later this year.
“Rod has led our company through an unprecedented time, when demand for our engineering expertise has never been higher,” says Ken Knuth, chairman of the board of Finley Engineering.
“I’m honored to add to my responsibilities and help position Finley to succeed in enabling the smart broadband future of our valued communications and utility clients,” says Boehne.
Finley will continue to service clients as usual during this seamless transition. Existing clients can contact their respective account representative with any questions.
