Associated General Contractors of America Introduces New Officers to Lead Construction Industry
Chuck Greco of Houston-based Linbeck Group Will Serve as President; Contractors from South Dakota, Texas and Massachusetts Will Help Lead Trade Group
The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) today announced the new officers who have been selected to lead the nation's largest construction trade association. Chuck Greco, chairman of Houston, Texas-based Linbeck Group, will serve as president; Mark Knight, president of Webster, S.D.-based Foothills Contracting Inc., will serve as senior vice president; Art Daniel, president and COO of Cedar Hill, Texas-based A.R. Daniel Construction, Inc. will serve as vice president; and Joe Stella, president of Wakefield, Mass.-based P.J. Stella Construction Corp., will serve as treasurer.
"During the course of my career I have had countless opportunities to observe just what a positive impact this association has had on our business and our industry," said Greco, AGC's new president. "Our ultimate goal is to build a more successful industry for the future and to be recognized as the talented professionals we are and the meaningful contribution we make to the built environment every day."
As president, Greco will lead the officers in a national effort to address growing workforce shortages, improve the productivity of the nation's construction companies and help builders succeed in the ever-changing economic and political environment. Among the top issues the officers will address are the proliferation of new, and often ineffective, regulatory burdens, the need for new infrastructure investments and the continued adoption by the industry of new technology and new approaches to completing projects. The officers will serve in these positions until March 2016, at which point Knight will move into the position of president.
AGC is the largest and oldest national construction trade association in the United States, and represents more than 26,000 firms, including 6,000 of America's leading general contractors, and over 9,800 specialty-contracting firms. More than 11,000 service providers and suppliers are associated with AGC through a nationwide network of 93 chapters. AGC represents contractors on Capitol Hill, and within federal agencies and the courts, in addition to providing the latest educational resources technological tools of the trade.
