Plain City, Ohio-based A2Z Field Services has announced the retirement of its president, Bill McMullen, and the promotion of longtime SVP Amie Sparks-Beebe to the position of president and CEO with the company.
In her previous role with A2Z, Sparks-Beebe's responsibilities included core business operations such as resource and organizational planning, process improvement, sales and service development, and technology integration.
The company expects a seamless transition as Sparks-Beebe expands her responsibilities to include growth strategies and initiatives as well as financial planning.
"I take great pleasure and pride in promoting Amie Sparks-Beebe to CEO of A2Z," McMullen said. "Amie’s accomplishments over the past eleven years have made her the obvious choice for this position. Her talents, energy and commitment to excellence have been a driving force within our organization, and I look forward to the continued growth of A2Z under her leadership."
Sparks-Beebe has a BA degree with a specialization in accounting from Ohio State University Fisher College of Business and she is a member of the Ohio State Accounting Association. She oversees three regional offices for A2Z located in Ohio, Texas, and North Carolina, and is based out of the company's corporate headquarters outside of Columbus in Plain City, Ohio.
Meanwhile, McMullen will maintain his ownership in A2Z but will not be involved in the management of the business.
"It's with mixed emotion that I leave my position at A2Z, but there is a time for everything, and I am truly confident as I pass the reins over to Amie that she will continue to move our business forward," McMullen said.
