    “I am very enthusiastic and eager for the opportunity to serve as Executive Director for the NWCCA—a highly respected organization that plays such an important role in advancing the interests of the wall and ceiling segment of the construction industry. It is indeed an honor to have been selected and entrusted with this position, and I look forward to working with our board, our members and our partners to explore new opportunities and to face industry challenges of the future.”
