Conner holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Duke University, a master’s degree in civil and environmental engineering from Stanford University, and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
On May 13, NV5 appointed Edward Codispoti as CFO. Codispoti has extensive experience in financial leadership positions at high-growth publicly traded corporations and has established a record of global financial planning and analysis as well as building scalable finance organizations for companies experiencing rapid expansion.
“It is exciting to be joining a company with a rapid growth trajectory, and I look forward to leading the progression of the finance and accounting functions as NV5 continues to grow in both revenue and shareholder value,” said Codispoti.
Dickerson Wright, P.E., chairman and CEO of NV5, said both new additions bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to NV5. He believes their contributions will strengthen NV5’s board of directors and executive management team for continued organic growth.
“Laurie’s expertise in civil and environmental engineering, along with her experience in managing recurring revenue service companies, will be very valuable to our board,” Wright said. “Ed’s track record of building scalable finance and accounting organizations for publicly traded companies will provide tangible benefits for our operations and maximized value for shareholders.”
