The Portland Cement Association (PCA) has appointed Tom Beck, president of Continental Cement, as chairman of its board of directors. Ron Henley, president of GCC of America, was also named vice chairman of the board.
Michael Ireland, PCA president and CEO, says: “The PCA board of directors plays a critical role in determining our legislative, regulatory and business priorities.”
Beck takes over the PCA board from Allen Hamblen, president and CEO of CalPortland.
Beck says: “As chairman of PCA’s Board of Directors Allen Hamblen strengthened the cement industry in many ways. In taking over this important position, I view my role as being part of a relay team. Allen has simply passed the baton to me for the next couple of years. We must continue to be more focused, efficient and effective. That includes continuing our alliance with the National Ready Mix Concrete Association and the American Concrete Pavement Association so that each association can focus on their core strengths as we all strive to produce better results.”
Beck has served as senior vice president of Continental Cement and was a past chairman of the American Concrete Pavement Association.
Prior to joining GCC of America, Henley was president of Boral Construction Materials. He is also a board member of the Denver Scholarship Fund.
