Wilson & Company names new field director December 9, 2019 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share via email St. Louis-based construction management firm S. M. Wilson & Co. has promoted Mike Ashley to field director. Ashley’s promotion comes with a recent restructuring of S. M. Wilson’s Field Operations department. The Field Director position will replace the Director of Field Operations to allow for more than one individual to provide direct support, oversight and mentorship for the field aspects of projects from pre-construction to close-out, including support of superintendents and tradespeople. Ashley was brought into the Field Operations department to assist former Director of Operations Mike Zick. Both Ashley and Zick will assume the title of Field Director. In their new roles, they will each be assigned to specific clients and project teams. This will allow every team the benefit of a dedicated Field Director with the resources available to provide guidance and support. Ashley joined S. M. Wilson in 2004 and has worked on a variety of projects including Ladue Schools, Link in the Loop, City Foundry STL and Clarendale St. Peters. He is OSHA 30 certified and has more than 40 years of experience in the construction industry.
