Santa Clara, Calif., - (March 5, 2013)  Santa Clara-based general contractor and construction manager, Blach Construction Company, today announced two executive promotions. Laura Bold has been promoted to Vice President, Accounting & Finance and Matt Bell has been promoted to Vice President, Marketing & Customer Service. 

Throughout her career spanning over 16 years at Blach, Laura Bold has served in increasingly responsible positions, proactively managing the company’s processes and controls to keep pace with its accelerated growth. Bold has dramatically enhanced Blach’s accounting systems and forecasting abilities over her tenure, improving its financial procedures to keep up with the growing complexity of the construction industry.  Her knowledge of accounting and her approach to working with Operations leaders has enabled Blach to grow and finance its operation through its own profitability, without any debt.  

Viewed as a role model, Bold’s exemplary leadership has earned her a high level of credibility and trust within the company. Recognized for her significant contributions to the company in an executive role, Bold received a YWCA Tribute to Women in Industry (TWIN) award in 2005. 

Matt Bell celebrated his 10-year anniversary with the company last year, and during his tenure, has completely modernized Blach’s corporate branding.  Bell spearheads the company's customer service initiative and works with Business Development to produce winning proposals and presentation material in the pursuit of new business. His keen insights and instincts have significantly elevated Blach Construction in the eyes of its customers, prospects, recruits and the community in general. 

Blach’s new website is one of the most visible successes Bell has delivered this past year.  Bell consistently helps the company distinguish itself in this hyper-competitive field, and by doing so, makes Blach’s primary work of building great projects and relationships that much easier.

“These appointments are well-deserved,” noted Mike Blach, president & CEO. “Laura and Matt have provided a great deal of leadership and expertise to our company, playing key roles in our high growth and success.  Moreover, each of them, through their personal example, makes Blach Construction a better place to work.  They truly embody our core values and care deeply about our customers, our co-workers and the communities in which we live and work.”
