Ronald Burg, former vice president at CTLGroup, has been named executive vice president of the American Concrete Institute (ACI).

He will replace ACI executive vice president William Tolley, who will retire from ACI at the end of June after 35 years of service.

Burg will join the 100-member ACI staff at its Farmington Hills, Mich. headquarters on July 6. "As an engineer who has worked my entire career in the concrete industry as a researcher, consultant, and practitioner, I can think of no more exciting opportunity than to join the staff of the American Concrete Institute," Burg said.

"Throughout my professional career, I have always been very impressed with the role ACI plays in the engineering and construction community as the prime source of knowledge, insight, and influence regarding concrete and its applications," he said. "As executive vice president, I look forward to working with ACI's staff, volunteer members, and the international concrete community as we continue the outstanding history of ACI in providing unparalleled knowledge and insight on all aspects of concrete technology."

Burg began his concrete and construction career with Professional Services Industries Inc. as a staff engineer, manager of construction services, and eventually quality assurance coordinator at the LaSalle Nuclear Power Plant.

In 1983, he joined the staff of CTLGroup in Skokie, Ill., where he moved up the ranks, beginning with research engineer, quality assurance coordinator, senior research engineer, manager of fire/thermal technology, director of materials technology, principal engineer, and eventually vice president.
