Tom Beck, president of Missouri-based Continental Cement Co., and Ron Henley, president of Colorado-based GCC of America, have been elected to two-year terms as PCA chairman and vice chairman, respectively.

A 10-year veteran of (pre-Holcim) Holnam prior to joining Continental Cement in 1996, Beck succeeds CalPortland Co. President and CEO Allen Hamblen at PCA, viewing his new role “as being part of a relay team. Allen has simply passed the baton to me for the next couple of years,” he says. “We must continue to be more efficient and effective. That includes continuing our alliance with the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association and American Concrete Pavement Association so that each can focus on their core strengths as we all strive to produce better results.”
