Mack Named 2019 ACPA Chairman

James W. “Jim” Mack, Director of Market Development-Commercial Strategy for CEMEX has been named  the 56th Chairman of the ACPA Board of Directors.  

He assumed the role with the traditional gavel passing ceremony last Thursday at the closing awards dinner at the ACPA annual meeting.  Chuck Niederriter, 2018 Chairman (and Chief Operating Officer of Golden Triangle Construction Co.) said Jim is the first Chairman in the history of ACPA to have served with a cement company, a regional shipper’s group, an ACPA-affiliated Chapter, ACPA National, and PCA.

“The combination of his work experiences, business sense, and his technical prowess give him some unique perspectives on the industry,” Chairman Niederriter says, adding, “But even more than that, Jim has a well-deserved reputation as being a staunch and tireless advocate for concrete pavements.” 

Jim thanked Chuck for his service as 2018 Chairman and described his two major objectives as 2019 Chairman.  

“The first is the implementation of the industry pavement promotion plan,” he said, adding, “The second item I want to focus on is the continuation of the ConcreteCOMPETES initiative started by Chairman Niederriter.”  The initiative is about aligning resources at the national level to scale up pavement promotion and to support the local promotion network, he says.

ACPA Names Niederriter as 2018 Chairman

ACPA’s 55th Chairman of the Board says, “I’ll be right there with you to push for concrete pavements and celebrate our victories, too!”

ACPA has named Chuck Niederriter, Chief Operating Officer of Golden Triangle Construction Company, as its 2018 Chairman of the Board of Directors.  Niederriter became the 55th person to serve as ACPA Chairman during a ceremony at ACPA’s Annual Meeting, where he accepted a ceremonial concrete gavel from 2017 Chairperson Lori Tiefenthaler, Senior Director of Marketing for Lehigh Hanson, Inc.

“The mission for 2018 will be for the national organization to work closely with the ACPA-affiliated chapters to provide increased service and assistance to our governmental partners at the state and local level,” he said, adding, “This is in direct support of decisions-making about pavement design and selection process for our highway systems.

“This is of great importance today considering the heightened awareness nationally for much needed improvements to the infrastructure in the United States,” he said, adding, “The transportation departments across the country are asking for help, and we are prepared to step in!”

Celebrating Successes
During his acceptance speech at ACPA’s 54th Annual Meeting, Niederriter said, “Our clients expect our projects to last a generation. Unfortunately, the measure of success for our product is that often goes unnoticed for 50 years. As such, we need to celebrate our successes.”

Addressing an audience of 285 association members, affiliates, and other guests, “As we move forward in 2018, I want to encourage, challenge, and invite you to ‘get into the trenches.’ I know your ACPA national and Chapter staff will be there, and I promise you I’ll be right there with you to push for concrete pavements and celebrate our victories, too!”
