The NSSGA has announced that Jerry Geraghty, President and CEO of Rogers Group Inc., will receive the Barry K. Wendt Memorial Commitment Award in recognition of his lifetime of service and leadership to the aggregates industry.

The award is the highest honour that the NSSGA bestows, as it recognises an individual who exemplifies commitment to family, career and the aggregates industry. It is made possible by the support of the NSSGA Manufacturers and Services Division.

“We are honoured to recognise Jerry with this award for his business success, dedication to family and his decades of service to the aggregates industry,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO. “He has shown incredible commitment to excellence in both the aggregates industry and toward making this world a better place.”

Geraghty has been actively involved in the industry for his entire career, and has continuously sought to improve safety through his time at Rogers Group, the largest privately held aggregates producer in the country. His constant focus on high safety standards earned Rogers Group a 2012 NSSGA Sterling Safety Award for Large companies.

Garaghty has been an industry leader, serving as a member of the board of directors for NSSGA, the American Road and Transportation Builders Association and the Construction Industry Manufacturers Association. He also served as first co-chair of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers in 2002 and chaired NSSGA’s board of directors in 2009. In addition to his industry service, he has been an advocate of corporate social responsibility and community service.

The Wendt Memorial Commitment Award will be presented at NSSGA’s Annual Convention and AGG1 Academy & Expo in Nashville, Tenn., March 20-24. It was established in memory of Barry K. Wendt, a long-time active association member who devoted his energy to advancing industry causes and is remembered for his dedication, service to the M&S Division, hard work and personal integrity.
