Manufacturing is in Larry’s blood and his DNA. He and his brothers worked in the family business after school, running presses and working in the tool and die room. After serving as a tool and die apprentice, for four years, Larry moved on to key roles in purchasing, quality control, production management, and finally executive management since 2009. Larry served eight years with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves while attending Colorado State University, where he earned a degree in Industrial Technology Management. In addition to being a third-generation metal worker, Larry is a third-generation bee-keeper.
Vice President, Finance
After spending her early professional years in a small CPA firm, Cynthia transitioned to the manufacturing environment, working with several firms for 15 years before joining Metalcraft in 2002. Cynthia not only manages the accounting and finances at Metalcraft, she’s also responsible for Human Resources. “That really keeps me busy because we’re growing and we have a culture of providing our team members opportunities for training and personal development,” she points out. Initially a part-time employee, Cynthia grew with Metalcraft. “That’s what’s really nice about our firm,” she explains, “there’s opportunities to take on new challenges and expand your role.” Cynthia enjoys outdoor activities in the Colorado mountains, traveling, and attending theater performances and concerts in and around Denver.
Mark joined the Metalcraft team in 2014 after nearly 25 years in the automotive and aerospace industries. His career has centered around quality systems management and quality control, and he continues that focus at Metalcraft, maintaining the firm’s ISO certification and helping reinforce a continuous improvement culture. "When my wife and I decided to move to Denver to be closer to family, I had the choice of working with several manufacturers. I liked how Larry described his vision for the company as one of moving forward, expanding capabilities and supporting team member potential.” Mark enjoys spending time with family (including “plenty of grandkids”), supporting Crimson Tide football (he’s an Alabama grad), and participating in outdoor activities like fishing, hunting, and golf.
Pam is essentially the customers’ liaison to our shop floor. After receiving orders, she helps schedule jobs and then works closely with the Purchasing, Quality and Logistics teams to coordinate and keep things on track. Pam joined Metalcraft in 2007 after working as a training coordinator for Carrier West. “Shifting from the distributor side of things to manufacturing was a challenge but it’s really been a fun change,” she says. “Some days, I just pinch myself and say, ‘Wow, we make some really incredible things!’” In addition to enjoying time with family and friends, Pam and her boyfriend “play with trains” (her description!), maintaining a G-Scale train system in their backyard and actively participating in local train clubs.

Business Development Manager
Heather has a Mechanical Engineering degree from Kettering University, formally known as GMI (General Motors Institute). She worked for the automotive industry in Detroit for a couple of years and though she liked being a product engineer, she quickly realized that she was better suited to getting out from behind the desk, talking to people, and helping them solve problems. She went back to school, earned an MBA at Oakland University, and shifted into business development. Her work in technical sales eventually brought her to Colorado. She has worked for a wind turbine parts manufacturer in Castle Rock, as well as a manufacturing startup in Golden before landing at Metalcraft. She has three kids and is an avid coach for their soccer, basketball, and lacrosse teams. She also volunteers at Girls Inc. and their STEM program Eureka! where she helps girls experience focused learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math.
