NRMCA’s Promoter of the Year Award is presented for outstanding contributions in support of concrete promotion with a particular focus for strong performance in recent years. Larry Gibbes of Argos USA is this year’s winner as a result of his outstanding efforts in promoting concrete that have resulted in more than 35,000 yards of concrete placement just from recent promotional activities.

Gibbes has spent his entire 27 year career promoting concrete in and around Charlotte, NC, and has been very active in supporting the Carolinas Ready Mixed Concrete Association and other industry organizations over that time. As an example of his promotional ability, in 2009 he was instrumental in convincing the City of Charlotte Engineering Department to accept a concrete paving alternate for a new local road (Fred D. Alexander Blvd.) which was already designed for asphalt. Charlotte had not built a new concrete road in 28 years. Gibbes took the city engineers on a tour of old concrete roads and provided decades of concrete road maintenance records in his convincing argument. Charlotte now has completed the first three phases of this road using concrete (14,000 yards) and is also developing a sustainable roads program thanks to Gibbes' efforts.

The Promoter of the Year Award will be presented to Gibbes on March 6 during the Awards Breakfast at the NRMCA Annual Convention in Savannah, GA. For more information, contact NRMCA's Glenn Ochsenreiter at
