Bailey Announces Staff Promotions and Additions

Bailey has announced the promotion of Shane Brockshus and Alec Charais to the newly created positions of chief operations officer and chief marketing & product development officer, respectively. Marc McCormack will continue leading company-wide sales direction and sales leadership development, now as chief sales officer. Additionally, Ofelia Wegley has joined the Bailey organization as chief human resources officer.

“We are looking forward to having Shane, Alec and Ofelia in their new positions, contributing to setting direction for the future of our company,” shares Terry McEnaney, Bailey’s chief executive officer. “Shane and Alec have been with Bailey for 20 years and have continually shown themselves as strong leaders who bring creative, thoughtful and impactful ideas to the table and make them happen. Ofelia joins our company with two decades of experience within and outside the horticulture industry, bringing our human resources team great insight and direction.”

Bailey has seen significant growth in recent years after the acquisition of Plant Introduction Inc. and Carlton Plants. Elevating these key business functions to a more senior level complements the existing management structure led by Chief Executive Officer Terri McEnaney, Chief Financial Officer John Bailey and Chief Information Officer Pat Bailey.

“As we developed long-term strategic plans, it became evident that these positions and individuals were the right fit,” adds McEnaney. “having the right voices at the table is important for future success, and we are grateful and excited to have Shane, Alec, Ofelia and Marc share their expertise. They will have a positive impact on the Bailey organization and bring a well-rounded  vision of customer advocacy to ensure that our customers continue to be at the forefront of our decision making.”

These new roles are effective immediately, with Shane continuing to work at the company’s West Coast facilities for the immediate future before relocating to Bailey’s headquarters in Minnesota. Alec and Ofelia are already based out of the Minnesota headquarters.
