Bailey Announces Management
Promotions
Bailey has announced the promotion of Shane Brockshus
and Alec Charais to the newly created positions of chief
operations officer and chief marketing and product
development officer, respectively.
Marc McCormack will continue leading company-wide sales
direction and sales leadership development, now as chief sales
officer. Additionally, Ofelia Wegley has joined Bailey as chief
human resources officer.
" We are looking forward to having Shane, Alec and Ofelia in
their new positions, contributing to setting direction for the
future of our company, " said Terri McEnaney, chief executive
officer. " Shane and Alec have been with Bailey for 20 years and
have continually shown themselves as strong leaders who
bring creative, thoughtful, and impactful ideas to the table
and make them happen. Ofelia joins our company with two
decades of experience within and outside the horticulture
industry, bringing our human resources team great insight
and direction. "
Elevating these key business functions to a more senior
level complements the existing management structure led
by McEnaney, chief financial officer John Bailey, and chief
information officer Pat Bailey.
" As we developed long-term strategic plans, it became
evident that these positions and individuals were the right
fit, " McEnaney said. " Having the right voices at the table is
important for future success, and we are grateful and excited
to have Shane, Alec, Ofelia, and Marc share their expertise.
They will have a positive impact on the Bailey organization and
bring a well-rounded vision of customer advocacy to ensure
that our customers continue to be at the forefront of our
decision making. "
These new roles are effective immediately, with Shane
continuing to work at the company's West Coast facilities
for the immediate future before relocating to Bailey's
headquarters in Minnesota. Alec and Ofelia are already based
out of the Minnesota headquarters.
