Nichole Wheeler Named Cisco-Eagle Chief Financial Officer

A former employee-owner, Wheeler brings a wealth of experience and leadership skills

Cisco-Eagle CFO Nichole Wheeler

Effective April 1, 2023, Nichole Wheeler has been named Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Cisco-Eagle according to President Bryan Gauger.

In her new role, Wheeler will lead the company’s financial and accounting teams and serve as a key member of its senior leadership team.

“Nichole is ideal for this role,” said Gauger. “She is a proven problem solver and forward thinker with a knack for building consensus. Her previous experience with our culture and our industry made her ideal for our leadership team.”

Returning home

Wheeler was a previous Cisco-Eagle employee-owner who was a member of the accounting team from 1999 to 2005. She was instrumental in financial statement reporting, audit administration, ERP system implementation, ESOP transition and other finance and systems support.

Following her 2005 departure, Wheeler worked with HMT, a global provider for the above ground storage tank industry. During her 15 years with the organization as a key manager—and ultimately executive leadership team member—she contributed to growth, organic and acquired, both domestically and abroad.

Wheeler has proven success. She has led finance and operational teams for continuous process improvement, merger and acquisition integration, financial planning and analysis and increased liquidity and working capital.

A track record of excellence

Her career spans over 25 years of varied experience and management of financial systems, general accounting, tax, audit, treasury, and board/investor relations, allowing her to bring a broad range of knowledge to share with the Cisco-Eagle team.

Nichole holds a Master of Science in Management Information Systems from Oklahoma State University and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Business Administration from the University of Kansas. She is a certified public accountant (CPA) and certified management accountant (CMA).

Wheeler replaces longtime CFO Randy Williams, who is a previous employee-owner of the year. Williams will remain with Cisco-Eagle as Treasurer.

In her new role, Wheeler will work from Cisco-Eagle’s Dallas headquarters.

“I’m excited to rejoin the team of employee-owners at Cisco-Eagle,” Wheeler said. “Randy has been in place since the beginning of the ESOP and is leaving us in a great place. Working together we can continue to grow the business and honor the impressive footprint he is leaving behind. I am most looking forward to getting back to the Cisco-Eagle culture and people.”
