San Marcos, Texas-based McCoy’s Building Supply promoted a “home-grown” manager to the role of corporate controller. Joshua Whitley, a 17-year veteran of McCoy’s who began his career with the company as an accounts payable clerk while attending Texas State University, was named corporate controller.
McCoy’s employs more than 2,000 people and operates 86 stores and two millwork facilities in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and New Mexico. And the rise of Whitley reflects an emphasis on efficient information systems within the company.
“During the first few years of Joshua’s employment, we were working hard to have a fully integrated 3-way match system that tied the Point-Of-Sale system to the Account Payable module of our software,” said Rick Neal, senior VP and CFO. “While implementing the integration, Joshua was a big part of helping me develop the system and I quickly realized his ability to process the system side of accounting into logical and well thought out processes.”
Whitley became senior accounting manager in 2011, assistant controller in 2014, and a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) in 2015. “It’s been fun to watch Joshua’s career at McCoy’s and the way he has masterfully taken on more responsibility with each of his job assignments,” said CEO Brian McCoy. “Joshua is a home-grown leader who takes on every challenge with expertise and enthusiasm.”
“It’s a blessing to have been a part of McCoy’s growth,” says Whitley. “I’m excited to mentor and lead the fine team we’ve assembled within accounting as we build upon our sound accounting systems and processes to provide accurate and timely financial information for our company’s decision makers.”
