Columbia Roofing & Sheet Metal, a leading specialty roofing contractor in the Pacific Northwest and Southern California, has named Michael Sheets as its General Manager and Chief Financial Officer. In this role, Sheets will take the helm of the 49-person company, managing day-to-day operations and financial responsibilities, including managing the construction of a headquarters expansion project slated to break ground soon and complete by year end.
Sheets most recently served as USA Director of Finance and Operations at Scott USA, Inc. and DFG Inc., in Ogden, Utah. He has also held controller and senior accountant roles for Eide Bailly LLP; Page Brake Warehouse; and Fly J Inc. – all Utah-based companies. Sheets holds a Master of Accountancy (M.Acc) and he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Accounting from Westminster College in Salt Lake City.
At a recent company meeting, Sheets explained how working for his father’s company as a kid laid the groundwork for what he looks for when selecting a business partner: “Part of what attracted me to Columbia Roofing was the Columbia Roof Advantage – our roofing maintenance program, which sets us apart from others in our industry. I’m here to redefine and fine tune. My dad taught me to focus on the little stuff – the nickels and dimes – and then the big stuff will continue to come in.”
“When I met Michael, I was impressed with his leadership abilities in finance; helping the companies he has worked for get organized financially. After spending more than two decades of running Columbia Roofing and many hours talking with Michael, I realized he is a great match with our Core Values and with our culture. I’m excited to have Michael take our financial reins and run with them.”
