BSC Ventures names new CFO

December 31, 2018

James “Buddy” Hill has been appointed to the position of Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.  Buddy is filling the vacancy created by the retirement of our longtime CFO Ron Roberts.

Buddy Hill began his career with K&W Machine Products after graduating from Virginia Tech with a BS in Finance.  He went on to earn a BS in Accounting from Radford University and spent a number of years in public accounting before returning to industry with Atlas Copco in Roanoke.  After earning an MBA from Virginia Tech, Buddy became Chief Financial Officer of the John C. Nordt Company and most recently transitioned to QualiChem as CFO when the Nordt Company was sold. 

Ron Roberts is retiring after 18 years with BSC. He joined BSC as Corporate Controller in 2001 and was promoted to his current role as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer in 2003.  Ron has been a key member of the senior leadership team and played an important role in our growth and transition to an ESOP.
