Doug Dayton, P.E., has been named president of the American Concrete Pipe Association, transitioning from that same capacity at Professional Services Industries Inc., a major consulting engineer and construction materials testing firm.

“Doug is a proven leader with a long history in the design and construction industry and the vision to steer ACPA in its mission to promote concrete pipe and box culverts,” says ACPA Chairman Jeff Hite (Rinker Materials). “We’re pleased to have his expertise to lead the ACPA in being the spokesperson for the industry.” 

Board and Nominating Committee members, he adds, recognize Dayton’s extensive experience with owners, civil and structural designers, and constructors for both private and public construction work, including heavy/civil projects associated with department of transportation design-build and public private partnership (P3) contracts, often requiring large quantities of concrete pipe and box culverts. During his 30-year engineering and construction career, Dayton has been active member of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, American Road and Transportation Builders Association, American Society of Civil Engineers, and Construction Industry Round Table. He holds an Architectural Engineering degree from the University of Texas, Austin, and is a registered professional engineer in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Montana and New Jersey. 

“Concrete pipe is the resilient and sustainable product that our clients and the construction industry want as a foundation to their legacy across all of North America,” notes Dayton. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead the ACPA into its next chapter.”
