McClure Engineering has named Keith Esarey, who has been vice president since 2016, as president of the corporation.
A principal of the firm, he has served on its board since 2009, and takes the president’s title from principal Keith Cooper, who remains with the company and takes on the chairman’s role. Cooper had served as president since 2009.“We expect a seamless transition both internally and externally, as we have been transitioning responsibilities over the last year,” Cooper said in a statement. “Keith’s ongoing guidance and dedication to McClure over the past 20 years has more than earned him this position. We are excited to watch his leadership continue to make a difference here.”
Esarey began his career as an intern with McClure in 1992, worked for Monsanto after graduating from Missouri S&T and rejoined McClure in 1997.
The company’s other officers include Vice President Phil Wentz and Secretary/Treasurer Eric Schactman.
McClure Engineering, a mechanical and electrical consulting engineering firm, is one of the St. Louis region’s largest engineering firms, ranked by its 33 local, licensed engineers as of April 1, according to Business Journal research. The company, which has 84 total employees, reported gross billings of $10 million for 2017.
