WesternOne announces management change at Britco

By WesternOne   


March 20, 2015 - WesternOne Inc. has announced that Mike Ridley, President of WesternOne's modular building construction and leasing business division, has resigned to pursue other opportunities.

Obie Erickson, Vice President of Manufacturing at Britco, has been appointed as interim President of Britco’s Canadian operations and will assume the majority of Mr. Ridley’s duties effective immediately.  Mr. Erickson has been with Britco for over 25 years and has extensive experience leading teams in the design and construction of Britco’s full range of modular products. He will be primarily focused on pursuing modular construction and leasing growth opportunities in Canada and monitoring production levels to meet the demands of the energy, commercial and other potential markets.

Brent Morgan, who has 16 years of experience in the modular construction industry in both Canada and the United States as a leader in sales, manufacturing and finance, will continue as President of Britco’s US operations. Along with Mr. Erickson, Mr. Morgan will now report directly to Peter Blake, CEO of WesternOne, and together, they will actively lead the Britco organization’s team to execute on strategic growth opportunities.

“Mike has been a valuable Britco team member and strong advocate for the modular construction industry over his 18-year tenure, and we wish him the very best in his future. I look forward to working more closely with both Obie and Brent as we evolve our growth plans,” said Mr. Blake.
