During the annual Garver Summit held last week in Little Rock, Dan Williams officially retired as the engineering firm’s chief executive officer. Brock Hoskins has stepped up to serve as Garver’s new CEO, in addition to his previous role as company president.
Williams joined Garver in 1982 as a project engineer and steadily rose through the company’s ranks. According to his LinkedIn page, he became Chief Operating Officer in 2004 and held that position for four years before being named Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. In 2012, he was named CEO and President for Garver.
“There is no doubt that Garver is a better company today because of Dan’s leadership over the last seven years,” Hoskins said in a statement. “We’ve been able to grow into exciting new markets because our clients and employees trust us to take care of them, and we’re going to continue to build on that legacy that Dan has left us.”
Hoskins was announced as Garver’s next CEO in 2018 when Williams announced his plans to retire. Hoskins became company president on Jan. 1, 2019.
Williams will now serve as Garver’s chairman emeritus.
