NRMCA has promoted Jon Hansen to vice president, national resources North Central region; Amy Miller to vice president, national resources Southeast region; Brian Killingsworth to vice president, pavement structures and Tien Peng to vice president, sustainability. The changes, announced earlier this month by NRMCA President Robert Garbini, were made in recognition of their superior efforts in serving Association members through high-quality promotion and engineering support. Each of them was previously senior directors of NRMCA.

Hansen joined NRMCA in August 2006. Prior to joining NRMCA, he was the director of marketing for the Iowa Ready Mixed Concrete/Iowa Concrete Paving Association partnership. Miller joined NRMCA in 2008 as a member of the National Resource Directors team. She serves as a liaison of the concrete industry to key National Accounts as well as serving NRMCA through efforts with state associations located in the Southeast. Killingsworth joined NRMCA in 2011; prior to that he involved in several research projects with the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), FHWA and state Departments of Transportation. Peng also joined NRMCA in 2011; prior to that he worked in the building design and construction industry developing green homes, communities and commercial buildings.

In addition to these promotions, NRMCA has also restructured its Government Affairs and Operations, Environmental and Safety departments. Kevin Walgenbach has been named senior director of compliance and regulatory affairs. He will focus on advising the ready mixed concrete industry on compliance with operations, safety, labor and environmental regulations. Walgenbach will also continue to monitor and advocate on key regulatory issues of importance to the ready mixed concrete industry. He previously was senior director of legislative and regulatory affairs. Replacing Walgenbach in the Government Affairs department is Elizabeth Fox who is a senior director. Prior to joining NRMCA, Fox spent nine years working in the Senate, most recently as a staff member on the Environment & Public Works Committee with responsibilities including EPA regulation, water and infrastructure, mining, natural gas and alternative fuels.

Finally, Nicole Maher has been named chief operating officer of NRMCA. She was previously a senior vice president. In her new position, Maher will assist the office of the president and personnel with completion of performance-based goals and the work plan projects as approved by the Association’s Board of Directors, as well as development and maintenance of the annual budget. She will also continue managing the Meetings Department and NRMCA’s three affiliated manufacturers bureaus, as well as work with industry partner organizations at the state, regional, national and international levels.
