Colonna’s Shipyard promotes three executives

(NORFOLK, Va.) – Tom Godfrey, president and CEO of Colonna’s Shipyard, on Monday announced the promotions of three executives from the company’s leadership team to new positions.

“These positions will play a significant role in the growth of our company,” Godfrey said. “Today’s business environment brings with it new challenges; these new roles are necessary to respond to these challenges and fortify our position as we grow and expand our vision beyond 2023.”

“Randall, Jordan and Chris are the logical choices given their breadth of experience across various departments of our operation,” Godfrey said. “While they bring new energy and perspectives to our executive team, they also embody our company’s legacy and will continue to work closely with our board of directors.”

In his new role, Crutchfield will oversee all enterprise operations, including shipyard and industrial categories, Weld America LLC, and Accurity Industrial Contractors LLC. He will also oversee the human resource function for the Colonna’s family of companies. Webb will retain responsibility for enterprise contracts administration, procurement, legacy waterfront business, Down River and Colonna’s Shipyard West.

Colonna’s will assign Crutchfield’s responsibility for Steel America’s day-to-day operations to Hartwig as its senior director. He will oversee the heavy fabrication, in-plant machining, and off-site machining operations.
