Gregory M Scott is to lead the Portland Cement Association as president and chief executive officer. He will head the US cement industry body from its Washington, DC, office and represent PCA and its members before Congress, the Administration and the White House.
Mr Scott joined PCA in January 2012 as the senior president of government affairs and was promoted to president in September. “Scott brings a strong record of accomplishments to PCA with a wealth of experience in trade association leadership and legislative campaigns on federal transportation, environmental and energy issues,” the PCA said in a statement.
Most recently, he served as executive vice president and general counsel for the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association (NPRA) in Washington, DC. While executive vice president, Scott initiated a significant expansion of the association's public policy advocacy efforts. His work helped to position the group as a leading advocate for American manufacturing and a balanced, long-term national energy policy.
Prior to joining NPRA, Scott served as vice president of National Strategies, Inc, a trade association representing CEOs of Fortune 100 firms on corporate finance and tax issues.
