Clancy & Theys Virginia wouldn’t be what it is today without Bill Goggins. For almost 30 years, Bill has provided world-class support to the Virginia project team. He’s amassed a wealth of industry knowledge, and he’s left a mark on the firm that can’t be measured.
It’s the end of an era for Clancy & Theys Virginia as Bill Goggins is retiring on December 31st, 2023.
An Extensive Track Record in Construction
Bill first joined Clancy & Theys in 1994, just five years after the company opened its Virginia location. Since then, Bill has helped grow the location from just a handful of employees to more than 80 — while the larger Clancy & Theys company grew to over 400.
His experience is extensive. Throughout his career, he’s worked in a number of different positions and helped drive results in project management, estimating, constructability reviews, value engineering, scheduling, design-build, and more.
In Virginia, Bill has played an integral role in the construction of some of Tidewater’s most recognizable projects. These include Dollar Tree’s corporate Chesapeake campus, Canon’s Advanced Cartridge Manufacturing Facility in Newport News, the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Norfolk, and the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach. Clancy & Theys’ impact in the greater Virginia area would not have been possible without Bill’s thoughtful, dedicated leadership.
A Legacy of Leadership
Bill’s influence on Clancy & Theys Virginia runs deep. During his tenure, he worked closely with many local Economic Development Associations. His efforts to advance Clancy & Theys Virginia are unparalleled, as is his dedication to the greater Tidewater and Hampton Roads area.
In 2020, Bill was included in Virginia Business’ Inaugural Virginia 500 2020 Power List. This was due to his outstanding leadership and success in growing Clancy & Theys’ Virginia location.
When he’s not hard at work with Clancy & Theys, you’ll find him actively involved in supporting the future of the construction industry and the community in which he lives and works. At present, he serves on Old Dominion University’s Civil Engineering Technology Advisory Committee, Old Dominion University’s Coastal Resilience Committee, the Associated General Contractors of Virginia’s Legislative Committee, and the Executive Board of the Colonial Virginia Boy Scout Council.
Beyond the business, Bill is a devoted family man, friend, and neighbor. He is well known for his generosity of spirit and passion for helping others. His work ethic, tenacity, and passion will be greatly missed but we are so excited to see what his future holds.
A New Leader Emerges
Project Executive Chad Cowger will be taking over as Clancy & Theys Vice President and Virginia Division Manager. Chad has worked at Clancy & Theys’ Virginia office for 19 years and has had a hand in many of the firm’s notable Tidewater projects.
Highly skilled in project management, Chad has the right blend of experience, leadership skills, and work ethic to help push Clancy & Theys Virginia into the future and beyond. We’ll be sharing more about Chad in the months to come.
