Smith-Midland Corporation has named Stephanie Poe its chief financial officer.

Poe previously served as the company’s controller. She succeeds AJ Krick, who is starting his own CPA business, according to a news release announcing Poe’s promotion. Krick also recently announced a candidacy for the Scott District seat on the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors.

Poe has been with Smith-Midland, a precast concrete manufacturer, since 2017, according to the release. She previously worked in public accounting at Ernst and Young. She holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Appalachian State University, a master’s in accounting from George Mason University and is a certified public accountant in Virginia, the release states.

“Stephanie excelled in her role as Controller and has extensive knowledge of our business, the financials, and our processes during her five-year tenure with Smith-Midland,” Ashley Smith, president and CEO of Smith-Midland, said in the release. “She has served as a leader in numerous accounting roles across our business. I look forward to working with her in her new position.”

Smith also thanked Krick for his service to the company.

“Over the past eight years, we have become a stronger company during AJ's tenure," he said. "Since hiring AJ in 2014 the Company has had over 200% growth in total assets and total equity, revenue growth of 125%, uplisted to Nasdaq, and had eight straight years of positive earnings."

Smith-Midland Corporation has three concrete manufacturing facilities – in Midland, Reidsville, N.C. and Columbia, S.C. – and operates Concrete Safety Systems, the company’s J-J Hooks Safety Barrier rental division. Easi-Set Worldwide, a wholly owned subsidiary of Smith-Midland Corporation, licenses the production and sale of Easi-Set products and provides diversification opportunities to the precast industry.


Correction: An earlier version of this story referred to Smith-Midland Corporation as a cement manufacturer. Smith-Midland is a precast concrete manufacturer, per a company spokesperson.
