Tyler Kimberley has been named the new president of IMCO General Construction in Ferndale.
Kimberley, who was formerly the company’s vice president of operations, takes over for Frank Imhof, who has served as IMCO’s president for the past 34 years. Imhof will continue at the company as CEO.
“This is a time of transition, but most of all, a time of opportunity,” Frank Imhof said, in a press release. “There are many areas of growth-potential for IMCO and for IMCO employees.”
Kimberley began working summers for IMCO as a laborer while in college. He earned his bachelor’s in construction management from the University of Washington, moving on to work full-time for Frank Coluccio Construction in Seattle.
While at that company, he managed large-scale tunneling projects on the Hawaiian islands of Oahu and Maui.
Kimberley then returned to IMCO in 2007.
As president, Kimberley will have direct responsibility for IMCO operations and personnel. Imhof will concentrate on long-term business plans and business strategies, according to the company.
In another move, Tony Anderson has been promoted to vice president of operations. Anderson joined IMCO in 2001, and first became a company executive in 2007. He now will oversee all IMCO projects.
Anderson has most recently managed IMCO’s international operations, including projects in Guam and new market ventures in locations including Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
IMCO is one of the largest general contractors in Whatcom County, based on employee count. It had 150 employees in 2012, according to information provided by the company.
Among its notable services and projects are wastewater treatment plants, utilities and truck-crossing improvements.
IMCO was founded locally in 1978 by Frank and Patti Imhof.
