Toscas named President/CEO of Portland Cement Association

James G. Toscas brings to PCA a wealth of skill and knowledge

By

At its annual meeting on November 18, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Portland Cement Association (PCA) named James G. Toscas president and chief executive officer, effective December 15, 2014.

Toscas has decades of experience in the concrete industry. For the past 11 years, he served as president and CEO of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, and from 1998 to 2002, he was executive vice president and CEO at the American Concrete Institute (ACI). As a founder of the Concrete and Masonry-Related Associations, Toscas improved the collaboration of all industry allies and provided a forum for the establishment of a strategic roadmap for the entire concrete industry.

“Jim brings to PCA a wealth of skill and knowledge that will serve the association and membership well,” said Cary Cohrs, PCA’s immediate past Board of Directors chairman and chairman of the recruitment committee. “He understands the value of membership engagement and its vital role for the success of the Association.”

“PCA is a leader in the cement and concrete industry. It is an honor to safeguard that reputation while establishing the paths to move it toward new challenges and opportunities,” said Toscas.

Prior to joining ACI, Toscas was executive director and CEO of the American Nuclear Society.

Toscas received a Bachelor of Arts degree in physics from the University of Chicago, Illinois and a Masters of Science in nuclear engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana.
