What are your priorities as a finance leader over the next 12 months?
Dave: It really is managing through the integration of the new companies we acquired. Digesting those businesses, bringing them into the fold, trying to drive the synergies that we expect, and then really helping to refine our processes in finance, as well as in other disciplines. There’s a lot that finance can do to support reporting, be it around construction cycles, purchasing information, or doing various analytics. We’re really at the point where we’re trying to enhance our processes. That’s what a vast majority of ’16 is going to be. As we look beyond that, we’ll look for gaps in the systems—where if there are ways to be more efficient, there might be some systems that we might want to go after. But now we’re at the point where we just want to execute a little bit more efficiently than we have, and I feel like we have the right folks in place to do that.
