“The stone, sand and gravel industry is the foundation for so many products we use every day. The nation’s infrastructure, including roads, dams and pipelines, depends on the materials we provide,” said Nickolas, addressing NSSGA members in Nashville. “My goal is to work across the industry until 100 percent of producers are active members of NSSGA. No matter our size, we face many of the same challenges. We must seek solutions as one. Among our many shared tasks is to make our value clear.”

Nickolas arrived at Martin Marietta in 2017 after Caterpillar Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. positions. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign plus an MBA in Finance and a J.D. from the University of Chicago.
