He has a personal interest in real estate investing, business management and travel, which will contribute to his success in his new role.
The IGGA created the new position in order to assure the organization’s continued growth and reeminence in the grooving, diamond grinding and concrete pavement preservation markets.
We are very pleased to bring Nick to our organization and believe he has the experience and skills necessary to help the IGGA continue to meet its goal of supporting and advocating for the pavement industry worldwide,” said John Roberts, executive director of the IGGA.
