Coldspring recently announced the promotion of Greg Flint to president and COO. Flint was formerly the company’s vice president of operations and strategy and is a lifelong Coldspring employee with more than 34 years of service.

During his 16-year tenure on the Coldspring executive team, Flint worked closely under the leadership of previous president and COO, John Mattke. Listening to customers’ needs and then utilizing change management to improve Coldspring’s LEAN management system are Flint’s areas of expertise, according to the company. His deep knowledge and understanding of the business, connections with the employees and members of the stone industry, along with his strategic background and focus, position him well for leading the Coldspring organization going forward. 

“As a second-generation employee, it is an honor to be given the opportunity to lead Coldspring, an organization I’m proud to be a part of,” said Flint. “It’s especially humbling since Coldspring continues to play a leading and significant role in the industry and markets we serve. I look forward to building on our current successes in the marketplace, driving continuous improvement and ensuring Coldspring thrives for another 100 years by serving the unique needs of our customers.

“As president and COO, my primary goal is the continuous improvement of delivering value for our customers by capitalizing on our vast capabilities and resources, including the great people who are part of the Coldspring family. With a strong team in place, we’re well positioned to write the next chapter in the Coldspring story.”

John Mattke will provide guidance as president of the new Coldspring subsidiary, Stone Panels International, during the next phase of its transition in Marble Falls, Texas. Flint and Mattke will work closely in the coming months to ensure a smooth transition. Mattke also will provide ongoing guidance and support to Flint and the Coldspring executive team in key areas as he assumes a new role as a member of the Coldspring board of directors.

“It has been a privilege for me to serve as President of Coldspring for the past 13 years,” said Mattke. “I’m grateful for the guidance and support of the Alexander family and the board of directors all these years and to all my fellow employees for what we have accomplished together. I look forward to ensuring a smooth transition and continuing my service to the company in my new role.”
