INTREN announced today key changes to their leadership team which will provide deep expertise and diverse leadership well into the next decade. At the helm, former Illinois utility commissioner and corporate attorney Sherina Maye Edwards’ position as the interim Chief Executive Officer has been made permanent, while INTREN-veteran and Executive Vice President Matthew Turk has been promoted to President. New to the team is Jennifer Ballard Croft, who was recently hired as the Chief Legal and HR Officer.

“Sherina is an exceptional choice to lead this company and as a board, we have full confidence that she will continue her record of strong leadership,” said Founder and Board Chair, Loretta Rosenmayer. “In a short time, she has integrated herself with the company, our employees, our customers, and has played a key role in the company’s future organizational and growth strategy.

Newly appointed president, Matthew Turk, has held various leadership roles throughout his 30-year tenure at INTREN. From driving the company’s safety culture to customer-focused service and bringing more diversity to the workforce, he has been instrumental in the success that the company has achieved today.

In the newly created Chief Legal & HR Officer position, Jennifer Ballard Croft was most recently the Chief of Staff and the Chief Diversity Officer for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, the nation’s second-largest prosecutor’s office. Prior to entering public service, Jennifer was a Partner at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP where she focused her practice in the areas of labor and employment litigation and counseling. She is also a nationally recognized speaker and published author.

“I am excited to be part of INTREN’s future and welcome both Matthew and Jennifer into their new roles,” said Edwards. “INTREN has seen record growth and strong financial results despite a challenging year. We look forward to broadening our scope and providing innovative turnkey solutions that serve our customers while championing diversity and inclusion throughout every level of the organization.”
