Director of Accounting and Treasury
Kathy started with Richard Scheck in 1984 when the company was first formed and served as the company’s first Controller. Currently she holds the title of Director of Accounting and Treasury – (actually company historian works, too!). When the business began, there was Richard Scheck and Kathy, and a handful of pipefitters in the field. Kathy describes those as fun times and confirms that the loyalty to Mr. Scheck has prevailed to this day. Kathy’s favorite thing to do is hang with her 9 year old grandson, Jake. He makes Kathy smile every day.
