The National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) has selected Frederick H. Grubbe, MBA, CAE, to serve as President and CEO. He will begin January 2. He will succeed Ty Gable, FASAE, CAE, who will retire at the end of the year after serving NPCA almost 26 years.
Grubbe brings more than 25 years of non-profit executive leadership experience in associations, foundations and government. He previously led the Appraisal Institute, National Fraternal Congress of America and the Think First Foundation. He has also been active in the Association Forum of Chicagoland, having served as Chair of the Board. In addition to his nonprofit experience, Grubbe has held senior positions with the U.S. Department of Transportation and in the White House.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to have this opportunity with NPCA,” Grubbe said. “As just the fourth President and CEO since the organization’s founding in 1965, I have some big shoes to fill following Ty Gable. With our nation’s leaders currently considering significant infrastructure investment in the next few years, the future for precast concrete products is very solid. I’m delighted to join with the organization’s seasoned leadership and outstanding staff team in ensuring that precast concrete manufacturers and products are at the forefront of that historic investment in our country.”
The NPCA represents manufacturers of quality precast concrete products and industry suppliers. The association has members in all 50 states, eight Canadian provinces and 11 other countries.
