Anvil COVID-19 Update: Anvil Virtual Operations

As a follow-up to my March 18, 2020 message, I want to update you on Anvil’s transition to remote execution. To ensure the safety and well-being of all Anvil employees and our community, we are accelerating our push to becoming a virtual engineering company.

As a follow-up to my March 18, 2020 message, I want to update you on Anvil’s transition to remote execution. To ensure the safety and well-being of all Anvil employees and our community, we are accelerating our push to becoming a virtual engineering company.

As of Monday, March 23rd Virtual Anvil is operational.

For years now, Anvil has shared work and projects among our branches. As a result, we have developed a robust set of tools, software, and work practices to allow the company to shift project work between remote offices and balance our resources. When one office has excess work, we realign our resources from other offices to maintain balance. We have now expanded our tools, work practices, and teleworking arrangements to allow all employees to work remotely if needed.

In so many ways, virtual Anvil will be very similar to our current operations. We have already worked together with many of our clients on SharePoint, Microsoft TEAMS, and other collaboration tools. We intend to continue to execute work, hold project meetings, give status reports, and otherwise continue with our project commitments on an uninterrupted basis.

We realize that during this disruption clients may have unique needs or questions they need answered quickly. Please reach out to us as we continue to be here and ready to support any client needs.

Anvil is here as we have always been, and I know that working together there is no problem we cannot overcome together.

Stay safe and healthy,

John Mahoney, Anvil President

Anvil COVID-19 Response: A Message from President John Mahoney

In light of these unprecedented times, I wanted to share the actions Anvil is taking to secure the health and safety of our workforce, while continuing to provide ongoing services to our clients.

In light of these unprecedented times, I wanted to share the actions Anvil is taking to secure the health and safety of our workforce, while continuing to provide ongoing services to our clients.

Anvil operates from five geographically distinct regional offices: Anchorage, Bellingham, Billings, Concord, and Denver. While the pandemic affects us all, we expect the impacts to vary by location, so we will be able to share work and support clients and projects from multiple locations, leveraging our current resources and tools.

Anvil is a leader in using technology and for years our employees have been able to work remotely. We have expanded our teleworking arrangements to allow a larger number of our employees to work remotely, most likely from their homes. We are providing all the hardware and software needed to do this. Along with our robust and secure network, this past year we started using Microsoft TEAMS as a collaboration platform, which will further enable us to remain productive for our clients. These recent improvements make us ready for the challenges ahead.

We are all in this together. Anvil remains committed to supporting our clients in all locations from any location.

Anvil is pleased to announce two key management changes: John Mahoney as Anvil’s President and Dan Lewis as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

John Mahoney joined Anvil in 2014 as a Project Manager, most recently serving as our BP Cherry Point Program Manager. He brings decades of industry experience and a proven record of successful management roles, including President at NORCON and VP of Project Operations at Fluor. He is a licensed Professional Engineer with an M.S. in Construction Engineering, Degree of Engineer (Post Masters) from Stanford University, and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the United States Military Academy.

“This is an exciting time for Anvil, and I’m excited and humbled to accept this role. As President, I will ensure we remain committed to working as One Anvil across all our branches while developing and maintaining long-term relationships and becoming partners with our clients. I look forward to working with a great team to ensure Anvil’s continued success and expansion.”

Former Anvil President, Gordy Lindell, now serves as Chairman of Anvil’s Board of Directors and will continue to work closely with John Mahoney and the senior management team.  Since 2014, Gordy has led Anvil’s growth into new regions and sectors. Under his leadership, the company formed Redi Anvil in Lakewood, CO to further expand our upstream and midstream capabilities.

“It’s been a rewarding experience and privilege to lead this amazing organization, working with our employees and clients.  I am certain that John Mahoney will continue to lead Anvil in the right direction.”

Since 2008, Dan Lewis has been Anvil’s Controller, working closely with Anvil’s former CFO, Rob Farrow, and the full management team. Dan brings over 20 years of corporate accounting industry experience to the CFO position. Rob Farrow has joined Anvil’s Board of Directors.

  • Employee Stop Work Authority Program
