The Portland Cement Association (PCA) has named A. Todd Johnston as its new Vice President for Government Affairs, effective 19 January 2015. Johnston will be based in the association's Washington office and will represent the PCA and its members with the federal government.
Johnston has a strong record of experience in state government, industry, and in Congress. Most recently, he served as Staff Director for the Subcommittees on Environment and Energy under the US House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. From 2007 to 2013, he worked on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW), first as a Senior Advisor and Staff Director of its Clean Air, Climate Change and Nuclear Safety Subcommittee under Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH). After Senator Voinovich retired in 2010, Johnston became the full committee’s Senior Policy Advisor under Senator James Inhofe (R-OK). Prior to joining EPW’s staff, Johnston was Director of Air Quality for the National Mining Association and the Environment Manager for Kyanite Mining Corporation in Dillwyn, Virginia. Johnston also served as Policy Advisor and Special Assistant to the Secretary of National Resources for the Commonwealth of Virginia under Governors George Allen and Jim Gilmore.
“It is vitally important that our industry maintain a practical working relationship with the various federal bodies that impact cement production, transportation, and consumption as well as the use of concrete,” noted James Toscas, PCA President and CEO. “We are very pleased to have someone with Todd's extensive experience leading this effort.”
