Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, promoted Becky Mehaffy to workforce manager.

In her role, Mehaffy will be responsible for the day-to-day coordination of Tarlton’s field workforce.

Mehaffy brings to the position more than a dozen years of experience at Tarlton, most recently serving as a contractor management representative at the firm’s projects for Monsanto Co. She began her career at Tarlton as a laborer apprentice on the Facilities One segment of the Cross County MetroLink Expansion project.

“We are excited about the direction that Becky will take our workforce,” said Dirk Elsperman, Tarlton executive vice president and chief operating officer. “She is a hands-on construction professional that knows Tarlton and the work we perform. Becky uniquely bridges the gap between Tarlton’s traditions and the future of construction.”
