Massey Services Promotes Gwyn Elias to CIO
Harvey L. Massey, Chairman and CEO of Massey Services is pleased to announce that Gwyn Elias has been promoted from the position of Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) to Executive Vice President, Chief Investment Officer (CIO), effective January 1, 2014.
Massey Services has just completed its 29th consecutive year of profitable growth, and has gone from four service centers in 1985 to currently having 104 service centers, with more openings planned for 2014.
