A new Vulcan organizational structure places key leaders over one single- and six multi-state operating divisions: Western, California businesses; Mountain West, Arizona and New Mexico; Southwest, Texas and Oklahoma; Central, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and Illinois; Mideast, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware; Southern and Gulf Coast, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana; and, Southeast, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Effective January, Senior Vice President Stan Bass will maintain Western business responsibilities and oversee the Mountain West Division. Reporting to him will be Mountain West President David Pasley, transitioning from current vice president and general manager for Central California post. Jeff Lott, formerly vice president and general manager, Texas, will be Southwest Division president. David Clement will serve as Central Division president, continuing in his leadership role for the Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas businesses. Kim Duke, formerly Florida vice president and general manager, will transition to Mideast Division president. Vice President, Business Development Jason Teter will become Southern and Gulf Coast Division president. David Grayson, formerly Georgia vice president and general manager, will be Southeast Division president.

“The structure is a natural evolution of Vulcan’s streamlined organization and enables us to pursue growth and profitability while further leveraging the actions undertaken since 2012 to consolidate back office functions,” says President and CEO Tom Hill. “Our flat organizational structure will be built on existing support groups and continue to emphasize local, ‘close-to-the-market’ leadership, as well as active collaboration across geographies. Building on these actions, our new organizational structure will enable us to move into a new period of strong, profitable growth and enhance our position as the leading aggregates producer in the United States.”
