GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Infotech, a leader in infrastructure construction software solutions and expert statistical and econometric consulting services, announced today the appointment of Andrew Uelsmann as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer, effective immediately. Uelsmann was promoted to this role after a 12-year career with the company, now assuming the responsibility for Infotech’s financial strategy and operations and taking on a critical role on the senior leadership team.
Uelsmann has been instrumental in the company’s financial and business strategy throughout his career at Infotech. After starting as an intern in the company’s accounting department, he quickly demonstrated his ability to understand the business, market and customer base and then combine this knowledge with his financial expertise to support strategic execution.
“Andrew started as an intern for Infotech in 2008 and has now grown to be the leader who knows the financial landscape of both of our businesses more than any single person within our company,” Will McClave, President of Infotech Systems, said. “He has been the lead on many of Infotech’s recent strategic initiatives, including the building of our headquarters here in the Celebration Pointe development.”
Uelsmann will report to Infotech’s Vice President of Operations and Chief Legal Officer Amber McClave. “When it came time to choose a CFO, we knew there was no one inside or outside of the company who could compete with his ability to provide analyses that tells the story of where we are and where we are headed and utilize it to render strategic direction,” Amber McClave said.
In his role, Uelsmann will join the executive management team and be responsible for the financial strategy of Infotech’s two businesses: Infotech Systems and Infotech Consulting. Prior to Andrew’s appointment the responsibilities of the CFO were shared between the organizations Co-CEO’s, Dr. Tom Rothrock and Dr. Jim McClave, former Controller Chuck Engeman, and Uelsmann.
“We are proud to promote from within for this key role on our senior leadership team,” Jamie McClave Baldwin, President of Infotech Consulting, said. “Not only does Andrew understand our two businesses, but he understands our culture, and his analysis, expertise and guidance will help inform our strategy as we continue to grow at an unprecedented rate.”
Uelsmann earned his Bachelor of Arts in history and economics from Davidson College in Davidson, N.C., prior to earning his Master of Business Administration from the University of Florida with a focus on finance and competitive strategy.
