The National Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association (NSSGA) has announced that it has hired Chuck Fuqua as its new vice president of communications.
Fuqua brings with him more than two decades of experience in government, politics, and trade associations. At NSSGA, he will be responsible for leading communications efforts to represent the aggregates industry and advance its policy positions.
Fuqua most recently headed the communications department at the American Forest and Paper Association. In this role he established and grew a communications team that is now the leading voice in the paper and wood products manufacturing industry. Before this, Fuqua was a spokesperson for Deputy Secretary Sam Bodman and Deputy Director of Public Affairs for Secretary Carlos Gutierrez at the US Department of Commerce.
“I am excited to begin working on behalf of the aggregates industry, which employs more than 100 000 hard working men and women and has great impact on the everyday lives of people across the country,” said Fuqua. “This industry and its employees have a compelling story to tell – about the need for its products, the people who produce them, and the need for effective public policies.”
“I am excited to bring Chuck onto our team at NSSGA,” said Michael W. Johnson, President and CEO of NSSGA. “He brings a wealth of experience from a strong, multifaceted communications career. He will play a key role in our mission to advocate on behalf of our members and give voice to the issues that are most pressing for our industry.”
NSSGA is the leading advocate for the aggregates industry. Its members are stone, sand, and gravel producers and the equipment manufacturers and service providers who support them.
