ASTM Committee C01 on Cement has presented the Bryant Mather Award to Bruce Blair, president and chief executive officer of Kalamazoo, Mich.-based Consumers Concrete Corp. Named for a long-time Corps of Engineers official—and an institution among ASTM and American Concrete Institute circles—the award recognizes contributions to the development and continued improvement of portland cement standards, and advancing the body of knowledge related to portland-limestone cement blends.

A member of ASTM since 1996, Blair recently took the helm of leading Michigan ready mixed and block producer Consumers Concrete after serving as Lafarge U.S. vice president of Product and Innovations. He holds degrees in Geology and Engineering Sciences from the University of Western Ontario. Beyond ASTM and ACI, Blair is a National Ready Mixed Concrete Association and Michigan Concrete Association member.
