Limbach Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: LMB) (“Limbach” or the “Company”) announced today the appointment of Michael M. McCann as Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), effective March 29, 2023. Mr. McCann currently serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (“COO”) of Limbach, a role he has held since 2019. Mr. McCann will take over as CEO from Charlie Bacon, who has served as the Company’s CEO since 2004. Mr. Bacon will continue to serve as a member of Limbach’s Board of Directors until the Company’s 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, at which time he will retire from the Board of Directors.

Gordon G. Pratt, Limbach’s Chairman of the Board, commented, “On behalf of Limbach’s Board, I’d like to thank Charlie for his leadership and commitment to Limbach during his 19 years of service to the Company. Preeminent among his many accomplishments were successfully taking Limbach public in 2016, building the Company’s current owner direct strategy (“ODR”), and developing an outstanding leadership team that has, and we believe will, continue to yield strong performance. Charlie has developed an outstanding culture at Limbach, led by his unyielding commitment to caring for employees, customers and the contractors that interface with the Company. Another notable highlight is Charlie’s commitment to employee career development, including the development of his successor, Mike McCann. We believe Charlie has indeed set the stage for long term continued growth and operational success of the Company.”
Mr. Pratt continued, “As part of our regular Board discussions and governance practices, we have been working with Charlie on succession planning and I am very pleased that we have been able to groom our next CEO from within the organization. Mike joined Limbach in 2010, and as COO has demonstrated a firm handle on all aspects of the business, as well as building relationships with Limbach’s customers. Mike is well-respected throughout the industry and is the right person to step into the CEO position.”
Mr. Bacon stated, “I am honored to have led Limbach as its CEO over the past 19 years and am very grateful for the many opportunities, experiences and relationships I have had throughout that time. I am extremely proud of our employees and their unwavering commitment to taking excellent care of each other and our customers. Given the strength of our leadership team, our people, culture, values and the transformational strategy we developed in 2019, I believe the Company is well-positioned to grow and thrive in the years ahead. Since joining the Company in 2010, Mike has demonstrated success at every level and is well respected by the team. As a significant shareholder of Limbach and out of my general care and concern for the people of Limbach, and the long term success of the company, I feel very fortunate to leave the Company in his very capable hands.”
Mr. McCann noted, “I want to thank Charlie, Gordon and the other Board members for their confidence in me. I have been working closely with Charlie preparing for this role, including executing Limbach’s strategic shift to focus on our ODR business. We have an incredible company that has a long and stellar history of delivering value to our customers, while providing a place where employees care and take pride in their work. I am committed to continuing to build upon that success and leading the next chapter of Limbach.”
