Virginia Beach-based Groundworks has promoted two employees, including one to chief sales officer and another as chief revenue officer, the foundation and water management solutions company announced Thursday.
Ben Flowers has been promoted from vice president of Groundworks’ southern division to chief sales officer, a new role for the company. Flowers will lead its sales force. In his previous role, he managed leadership development and growth for multiple Groundworks brands, including AFS Foundation and Waterproofing Specialists, Alpha Foundations and DryPro Foundation and Crawl Space Specialists.
