Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Portland Cement Association (PCA) has recognized Frank Craddock and Al Innis as winners of the 2012 John P. Gleason, Jr., Leadership Award. The awards were presented late last month in Chicago at PCA's annual fall committee meeting. The awards honor employees of PCA member companies who have exhibited industry leadership by taking the Association in new directions. Awards were presented in each of PCA’s two categories of key strategic initiatives: Business Continuity and Market Development. Innis was honored in the Business Continuity category, Craddock for Market Development.

Craddock is an executive vice president for CEMEX, Houston, which is a member of both PCA and NRMCA. He was instrumental in fostering the creation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Concrete Sustainability Hub, which was established in 2009 with the goal of accelerating emerging breakthroughs in concrete science and engineering, and transferring that science into practice.

Innis is the vice president of quality and product performance for Holcim (US) Inc., Dundee, MI. (Holcim is also a member of both associations). He provided constant efforts with the AASHTO/ASTM Harmonization Task Group to get limestone cements accepted in the final agreement. These changes to standards resulted in millions of dollars in savings per year to the cement industry. In addition, it provided an opportunity for manufacturers to produce greener cements with lower carbon footprints.

The award is named after John P. "Jay" Gleason, Jr., who served as PCA president from 1986 until his retirement in 2007. Gleason was known for his consensus building among both members and allies and for his strong leadership skills.
