CD Specialty Contractors Hires Two New Professionals (November 2017)

Leading industrial and commercial insulation and scaffolding company expands team

CD Specialty Contractors, a Denver-based commercial and industrial insulation and scaffolding company, recently hired two new members to its team, Director of Safety Dan Self and Business Development Manager Earl McJunkin.

Self will oversee the safety department, ensuring that all projects remain accident and injury free while exceeding customer expectations in safety performance and regulatory compliance. Self has 30 years of mining and construction safety management experience. Prior to CD Specialty Contractors, Dan worked with industry leaders on multiple complex projects ranging from new construction, major demolition, to environmental cleanup.

“I look forward to becoming part of and assisting the CD Specialty Contractors team and strengthen its already prominent reputation as a leader in safety performance,” said Self.

McJunkin’s industry-wide expertise and customer service mentality brings a new layer of service to the company. McJunkin has more than 28 years of experience in the scaffolding industry. Prior to CD Specialty Contractors, he owned his own company and specialized in multiple industries, including pulp and paper, refining and power.

“I’m excited to join a team that holds the same values for safety and service as I do,” said McJunkin. “I look forward to learning from our team members along with growing with the entire company,” he continued.

Darren Franz, chief operating officer of CD Specialty Contractors said, “Dan and Earl’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge has already made them key additions to CD Specialty Contractors. Our increase in projects and partnerships led us to look for additional team members who would fit with our commitment to service and safety, and its very fortunate that we were able to bring on two seasoned professionals who are passionate and dedicated to moving the industry forward.”

The two new hires are in addition to the more than 300 employees on staff in the company’s Denver and Castle Rock offices and on job sites across the country.
