The American Shotcrete Association (ASA), a non-profit organization of contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, designers, engineers, owners, and others with a common interest in promoting the use of shotcrete, has appointed Mark Campo as executive director of the organization.

Campo has an educational background in materials science and engineering (B.S.E., University of Michigan; M.S., Northwestern University) and has served for the last seven years at the American Concrete Institute as technical manager of its certification programs. There, he has overseen the maintenance of examination materials, study guides, and related documentation for new and existing certification programs, and also served as liaison to certification committees and managed the Quality Review program, as well as organizing and executing other ad-hoc committees and task group projects. Campo hopes to use this unique skill set to strengthen and expand ASA’s technical and educational resources and certification programs.

“[The year] 2013 will mark the 15th year since the American Shotcrete Association was first formed, and we’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to make a positive impact on the concrete industry as a whole,” says Joe Hutter, president of ASA. “Over the past several years, Mark has been integral in ACI’s certification programs, and we’re extremely happy to have him on board with us as we begin our next 15 years.”
