The NRMCA Research Engineering and Standards (RES) Committee annually selects an individual for the Richard D. Gaynor Award which recognizes dedication and commitment to advance technical initiatives that benefit the ready mixed concrete industry. For 2013 the committee selected Ken Rear for his considerable contributions in forwarding the NRMCA P2P Initiative and for his focus on education for industry members. 

Mr. Rear worked with Heidelberg Technical Center of Lehigh Cement when the P2P Steering Committee was formed in 2002. He co-chaired the committee and directed several of its initiatives. Mr. Rear emphasized the importance of evolving toward performance-based specification within the American Concrete Institute – recognized as an important initiative within the ACI Strategic Development Council; formation of Innovation Task Group 8 which he chaired and facilitated the development of the ITG-8 report; and supported the formation of ACI Technical Committee 329 that will focus on performance requirements for ready mixed concrete. While at Grace Construction Products, Mr. Rear was very active in facilitating educational programs for customers. Mr. Rear is now retired and spends his time between Florida and Maine.

The Richard D. Gaynor award will be presented at the NRMCA Annual Convention in San Antonio, TX, March 2-4, 2013. For more information, contact Colin Lobo. Past recipients of the Gaynor Award are posted on the NRMCA Web site.
