Va. construction exec announces retirement
Bill Goggins to retire from Clancy & Theys
Bill Goggins, senior vice president and Virginia division manager of Raleigh, North Carolina-based Clancy & Theys Construction, will retire at the end of the year, the company announced Tuesday.
Based out of the company’s Virginia office in Newport News, Goggins has been with Clancy & Theys for nearly 30 years. Chad Cowger, vice president and project executive, will succeed Goggins.
In his time with Clancy & Theys, Goggins has overseen some of the firm’s largest Virginia projects, including Dollar Tree’s Chesapeake headquarters, Norfolk’s Wells Fargo Center and the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach. Goggins joined the company in 1994, five years after it opened its Virginia office, growing the office from just a handful of employees to more than 80, while the company grew to more than 400.
“Bill has left an invaluable mark on the Virginia division and Clancy & Theys as a whole. His leadership, steadfast work ethic and vast construction knowledge have been the foundation for the Virginia office’s success since he took over the division in 2007,” Baker Glasgow, president of Clancy & Theys, said in a statement. “At the beginning of his leadership, Bill was dealt an impossible hand with the onset of the 2008 financial crisis. However, through hard work and perseverance, Bill led the office to brighter pastures that awaited on the other side.”
Goggins serves on several boards, including Old Dominion University’s Civil Engineering Technology Advisory Committee, ODU’s Coastal Resilience Committee, the Associated General Contractors of Virginia’s legislative committee and the executive board of the Colonial Virginia Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
