Tom Boldt Continues as Chairman of the Board

Kievet succeeds Tom Boldt, the fourth-generation leader who has served as President and CEO since 1998. Tom Boldt remains Chairman of the Board, providing oversight and authority over the board of directors as well as guidance to the company’s officers and executives.
