Westwood Contractors names new CEO
Westwood Contractors has a new Chief Executive Officer.
The company named Stefan Figley as CEO, a role he officially assumed on December 7th. Robert D. Benda, who has served as CEO since 2005, will continue to lead Westwood as chairman.
Figley, a certified franchise manager, was selected through a statewide search linked to Westwood’s succession plan. He has worked extensively developing and leading large and small teams in the US and abroad for national and international brands, including Steamatic, where he most recently served as President until joining an international corporation, Jani-King, ServiceMaster and Leo Burnett, was sold worldwide.
Figley also served as COO, strategy advisor, chief marketing officer, and other roles. His highly collaborative approach and leadership style result in well-aligned teams within a company to maximize competitive advantage and exceptional customer benefits. In addition, he has an enormous network of customers, prospects, subcontractors and other resources, which will further expand the company’s growth potential.
“We are excited to welcome Stefan to the Westwood team on behalf of the entire Board of Directors, and we believe he has the combination of skills and experience required to build on Westwood’s 37-year track record,” said Benda . “Stefan’s extensive marketing experience, including national and international roles, and the successful track record of leading large corporations operating nationally will bring additional resources to the talented Westwood team and ensure a bright future for the company.”
