Crawford, Murphy & Tilly’s (CMT) Angie Koester was recently named to the Springfield Business Journal’s 2022 list of Forty Under 40. The Springfield, IL-based publication annually recognizes young professionals in Springfield and the surrounding area based on their leadership and accomplishments, both in their chosen fields and in their communities.

With CMT since 2018, Angie serves as CMT’s Human Resource Manager, managing an HR team that serves over 400 employees across CMT’s 25 offices. Angie and her team are responsible for human resource planning, talent recruitment, compensation and benefits, compliance, staff development and training, and overall employee relations.

“Every day, Angie embodies and serves as a model of CMT’s core values – especially our values of integrity, teamwork, and fairness,” says Kristy Allen, CMT’s Human Resource Director and Angie’s direct supervisor. “With professionalism, patience, and superior technical competency, Angie is a phenomenal mentor to our HR staff and a trusted resource for our employees.”

With over 14 years of experience, Angie brings a wealth of technical and industry knowledge. She applies that insight by consistently pushing CMT’s HR team to advance their processes and procedures, all to continuously improve the employee experience at CMT.

Outside of CMT, Angie is engaged in numerous industry and community organizations, including the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), and Illinois Women in Leadership. Perhaps most impressive, however, is Angie’s ability to balance her professional dedication to CMT and her industry with her personal dedication to her home life and young family. Angie resides in Chatham, IL with her husband Jared and their three busy kids: Jake, Jimmy, and Addi.

Congratulations to Angie Koester – 2022 Springfield Business Journal Forty Under 40 Inductee!
