McCoy’s Building Supply Adds Top Talent To Accounting Team

McCoy’s Building Supply recently announced the appointment of Ignacio Fortuno as Corporate Controller and Joshua Whitley as Assistant Controller. The appointments are designed to enhance strategic financial planning as the company’s plans for growth come to fruition.

Before joining the McCoy’s team, Fortuno spent four years as Director of Internal Audit at HEB Grocery Company. His credentials include accounting and auditing management positions at CARQUEST Auto Parts® and Ernst & Young. He earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from the School of Banking and Commerce in Mexico City, Mexico.

Fortuno says he aims to make an impact by meeting the people of McCoy’s and learning more about the building supply industry. “Over time, my goal is to be a key contributor to the growth and profitability of the company,” explains Fortuno, “which means understanding the truth behind the numbers to uncover opportunities for the business.”

Fortuno feels fortunate to join a company that encourages serving others with a team mentality. “The accounting department’s number one focus is to provide each store with sound financial information and analysis to make great business decisions,” adds Fortuno. “I’m proud to join a team with a long track record for providing great service.”

Whitley is a 15 year McCoy’s veteran and most recently served as Senior Accounting Manager. He started his career in Accounts Payable after earning his bachelor’s degree in business administration with a major in accounting from Southwest Texas State University.

Whitley’s new role will focus on implementing financial and accounting systems to improve planning and forecasting. He looks forward to learning from the extensive experience of Fortuno, Neal, and the company’s previous CFO, Chuck Churchwell. “I’m lucky to have great leaders and mentors to learn from and grow with,” states Whitley. “My team has been very supportive of this change and I’m confident we can leverage our knowledge to expand our capabilities as we look to the future.”

“Josh is one of the most intelligent men I’ve had the pleasure to work with,” explains Neal. “He’s been instrumental in creating most of our current accounting systems and his new role allows us to build on the foundation Chuck established to accomplish more as a department,” adds Neal.
