Taft Electric Company announced today that Jeff Wofford has been selected as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective September 1. He is the former CFO of Consolidated Electrical Distributors, Inc. (CED) and, for the past 11 years, was the CFO of Able Services, an engineering and building maintenance company based in San Francisco.
Wofford will direct and supervise all financial planning and transactions of the company and analyze its financial strengths with the goal of implementing optimum strategic direction.
During his tenure at Able, the company grew to approximately 15,000 employees and was working with more than 420 different union locals in 46 states across the country until they were purchased last year by ABM, a Fortune 500 company.
“Jeff brings a wealth of experience and strategic leadership to his new role, which will be invaluable in helping us to continue our growth and success,” said James (Jim) Marsh, CEO of Taft Electric Company. “The financial innovations he brought to such prestigious companies will bring a new dimension to Taft’s financial operations.”
