The Board of Directors for CIRI’s wholly-owned design/build construction subsidiary, CIRI Services Corporation (CSC), is pleased to announce the selection of Jared Edgar as the company’s new president, effective June 17. Over the past year, Edgar, who previously served as CSC’s vice president, worked closely with outgoing President Richard “Dick” Weldin. Edgar has been instrumental in improving organizational processes, procedures and business development at CSC and its subsidiary companies.

Weldin, a CIRI shareholder, notified the CSC Board earlier this year of his intention to transition to an inactive role in an effort to devote more time and energy to personal interests. “I know that the CSC Board of Directors and the entire CIRI family join me in wishing Dick Weldin the very best in his new pursuits,” said CIRI President and CEO Sophie Minich. “Dick’s leadership helped successfully establish CIRI’s presence as a dominant construction company in the federal government contracting arena in the Alaska market.” Weldin will continue in an advisory capacity to assist in a smooth leadership transition.

In addition to his time with CSC, Edgar brings more than ten years of U.S. Department of Defense experience advising and administering programs throughout the United States and internationally. He holds a juris doctorate from Willamette University and a master’s degree in management from the University of Maryland. Edgar was raised in Wasilla, Alaska, and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Alaska Anchorage.

CSC and its subsidiaries (Weldin Construction, Silver Mountain Construction and ANC Research and Development) provide design/build construction, project management, self-performed electrical, mechanical, HVAC and heavy civil concrete services, as well as specialization in military and civilian fuel systems in Alaska and the Pacific region.
