John Spitaleri Shaw has been named Portland Cement Association senior vice president of government affairs. As head of the group’s Washington office, he will represent PCA and its members before Congress and the White House. Before joining the group earlier this year as vice president for legislative affairs, Shaw served as assistant secretary for environment, safety, and health at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). He was commended during that term for reestablishing a positive relationship between the department and the DOE worker community by expanding the Former Worker Medical Screening Program and implementing a seamless worker compensation program transfer to the Department of Labor.
Replacing Shaw is David Hubbard, who has represented cement industry interests on Capitol Hill for the past 17 years. He will manage the association’s federal legislative advocacy efforts on a variety of fronts, including environmental compliance, transportation and infrastructure legislation. In addition, Hubbard is the treasurer of PCA PAC, a political action committee. Prior to his cement industry tour of duty, he worked in the Office of the Secretary of Commerce during the Reagan administration, representing department interests on Capitol Hill.
