Virginia Business magazine named Ferguson CFO Dave Keltner as its CFO of the Year. The award recognizes chief financial officers whose ingenuity and dedication have led to success for their companies, staff and professional careers.
Keltner was honored in the Publicly Traded Companies’ category. He joined Ferguson 23 years ago as vice president of construction lending for the Erb Lumber subsidiary of Stock Building Supply. In 1999, he was named vice president of construction lending for Stock before being promoted to CFO seven years later. During his tenure as CFO, Keltner has guided a team of associates who have overseen 75 successful acquisitions and integrations, including 35 over the past six years that have added $1.1 billion to Ferguson’s annual sales. His leadership and business approach have helped propel Ferguson to unprecedented post-recession growth.
Keltner will soon become interim CFO of Wolseley plc, the Britain-based parent company of Ferguson.
