The Maryland company that says it is one of the largest family-owned, ready-mix concrete and sand and gravel producers in the mid-Atlantic by revenue, sales, and volume has a new CEO.
Francis “Hall” Chaney III has been promoted to CEO of Gambrills-based Chaney Enterprises, the company announced Wednesday. Chaney, who was named president in October 2016, succeeds William “Bill” F. Childs IV, who retired this month after 27 years at the company.
At Chaney Enterprises, Hall Chaney has also worked in sales and business development and has been a project manager, concrete operations manager and executive vice president. Since he became president of the firm, Chaney Enterprises has acquired Howlin Concrete, Dunkirk Supply, which is now known as BuilderUp and PCS Concrete. The company has also offered limestone for sale and is operating its first railway with an 80-car train to transport limestone at its 520-acre facility on Acton Lane in Waldorf.
In a news release, Chaney said he would continue the company’s devotion to serving the needs of its customers and communities and noted the company’s commitment to its workers and the environment.
“Continuing to grow this family business based on the same core principles and culture from which it was formed is a true passion for myself and our entire leadership team,” Chaney said. “We will look for continuous strategic growth opportunities, while maintaining our core focus on our quality, efficiencies and customers’ needs.”
Chaney is chair of the Maryland Transportation Builders and Materials Association’s education committee, serves on the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association executive committee, is a Maryland Ready Mixed Concrete Association board member and serves the Chaney Foundation and the Maryland Motor Truck Association.
Chaney, who lives in Anne Arundel County, holds a bachelor’s degree in logistics and supply chain management and a master’s degree in real estate and development, both from the University of Maryland.
