He is smart, educated and focused on the needs of the industry and the ACDI’s place in it. This search has been no easy task given the challenges of the Coronavirus. Regardless, the committee and Alex have reached this point with professionalism and great attention to the needs of the group. Alex’s education and work history made him a great choice and we look forward to working with him.”
This partnership is a continuation of the ACDI’s commitment to the construction industry.
