TP Mechanical has announced a shift within their leadership team by moving Bill Riddle to President and Chief Executive Officer of the company. Scott Teepe, Sr. leaves the position of CEO and will become Chairman of the Board. He will remain at the company as an advisor.
This transfer of leadership has been in the works for the past year, according to Tara Teepe, Marketing Coordinator. “Scott has led TP Mechanical to our current level of success and we’re excited for Bill to continue evolving and growing the company for the sake of our customers, employees, and stakeholders,” she said.
Riddle looks at his new role with a bright perspective and is excited to keep growing and moving the company forward. As Scott Teepe initiated TP Mechanical employee development program, Riddle’s initiative will be to build upon that established foundation. He hopes to continue creating additional avenues for the development of all TP Mechanical employees and help them reach their highest potential within the company.
“The number one priority for me is to develop and grow our employees by highlighting each of their specialized skills,” says Riddle. “We want our employees to achieve their professional goals and provide them with opportunities to move up in the ranks of the company into leadership roles.”
Riddle knows how important this mentoring can be. He has been with TP Mechanical for 30 years, and began his career as an apprentice for the company.
Since then, he’s held positions in the field and at the corporate level, including project management, superintendent and estimating. He was appointed President in 2011, and prior to that held the position of Vice President of Commercial Construction.
“Our best asset is the people who work for us, support our company and provide top-notch service to our customers,” said Riddle. “I want to make sure they have the same opportunities to grow in their career that I received.”
