During his time at Excaliber Manufacturing (now Esmark Excaliber), Randy played a key role in the negotiations and financing of several acquisitions. During a period of top-line growth, he was directly involved in the successful negotiation of Excaliber Manufacturing’s multi-level refinancing. By recognizing the operational economic benefits of consolidation, Randy minimized overhead expenses by consolidating business units and administrative functions.
His consolidation efforts were put on pause during a time of economic downturn, to maximize local job retention. In 2009, Esmark Industrial Group acquired Excaliber Manufacturing, where it was renamed Esmark Excaliber.
In 2013, Esmark Inc. created a new executive management team for Esmark Steel Group, where Randy assumed the role of Esmark Inc.’s CFO. He’s since been heavily involved in assisting and restructuring both Esmark Steel Group and Esmark Inc.’s business operations.
Throughout his 40-year career, Randy was promoted to several managerial positions. After receiving his BSBA in accounting from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Randy started as a staff accountant/auditor with Deloitte Touche in 1980, where he first recognized the need for management review.
In 1983, he was promoted to Accounting Manager at Hill & Barth King, where he focused on revenue enhancement and stockholder wealth. He obtained his CPA license from the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants in 1983.
In 1994, Randy served as an entrepreneurial business partner for three retail automotive dealerships, with combined annual volumes exceeding $65 million. Through hands-on involvement in all aspects of management, he doubled the sales and service revenues of the dealerships under his direct control.
In 2002, Randy expanded the presence of Honda’s automobile line and continued market penetration of the motorsport division. He developed various marketing plans and assisted management to implement accounting controls and monitor financial results.
