It takes many different leadership styles to reach and inspire any given group. This year, TCP recognizes a group of Influencers whose effective and creative approaches have significantly impacted the concrete industry.
The Innovator: Robert Finfrock sets a high-tech pace for precast producers.
- The Change Agent: Rich Szecsy brings concrete standards into the 21st century.
- The Facilitator: Mark Perniconi enables real action through research.
- The Consensus Builders: SAE Ready-Mix Concrete Truck Safety Committee raises the bar for ready-mix truck safety.
All share a restlessness—a combination of refusing to accept the status quo just because “that’s the way it’s always been done,” frustration with change that is slow to come, and determination to keep the concrete industry competitive by embracing 21st century technology. We applaud these Influencers who, each with a distinct approach, are dedicated to empowering and advancing the concrete industry.
