By ThisIsReno

SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

Leaders at Q&D are pleased to announce the following changes in the accounting department. The company has hired Chuck W. Cook as Chief Financial Officer and is promoting accounting manager Valerie Burnett to the position of Controller.

Cook will oversee the accounting team, contributing his diverse financial management skills and years of experience to Q&D’s corporate strategy of lean and profitable construction management.

Cook comes to Q&D with over twenty years of financial management expertise, including tenure at FMC Corporation, where he managed all financial aspects of a billion dollar partnership for Fortune 500 companies. He spent the last 13 years at Peavine Construction where he directed all financial aspects of operations for the heavy highway and underground construction company.

Cook holds a Bachelors of Accountancy with a minor in Economics and a Masters in Business Administration, both from New Mexico State University.

Formerly Q&D’s Accounting Manager, Valerie Burnett will become the Q&D Controller, a move to align her title to better represent the work and responsibility she has taken on in the last 7 years of her tenure here at Q&D.  Burnett will support the CFO, managing day to day accounting activities.

A construction company’s finances are a measure of its ability to properly serve its customers.  Q&D is confident that these changes will promote the stability and positive outlook set in place by our company’s leaders with the help of Mr. Cook’s predecessors in the CFO position. Q&D is poised to take advantage of improving markets because of its excellent financial position, and strategies of responsible credit management and conservative growth.

Q&D Construction has been a Reno/Sparks based business since 1964.  Proud of the company’s heritage and values, its employees promote service, quality and integrity through their relationships with clients, the subcontracting community, and the public at large.  Q&D is a diverse builder, offering expertise in commercial, residential, estate-home, and general engineering construction.  Learn more at http://www.qdconstruction.com/.  Visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/qdconstructio
