Chapter’s New Executive Director:
From Jim Kissick, NUCA KC Chapter President
On behalf of the NUCA leadership team, I’m pleased to announce a major milestone in the growth of your NUCA Greater KC Chapter, still in its first year. The hiring of local industry veteran Mac Andrew as our new staff Executive Director.
Please join me in giving Mac a warm welcome on behalf of your company. Mac’s new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
From his KC office, Mac has started making the rounds, representing NUCA at industry meetings throughout the region. Along with visiting the offices of NUCA’s 60 member companies, Mac is reaching out to our industry representatives at local governments, utility districts and engineering firms.
As Executive Director, Mac is charged with building these key relationships and creating opportunities for NUCA KC member companies. An expanded slate of NUCA activities is being planned here locally in the months ahead, from education to networking and outreach. All are designed to connect and advance our companies, and give “voice” to the vital infrastructure work our companies do here.
Mac is a familiar face and esteemed colleague in our region’s construction industry and public infrastructure. He knows firsthand what it takes for a project to be successful. Mac’s experience, industry knowledge and connections will help pave the way as we continue to build NUCA Greater KC Chapter as the foremost organization for excavation and utility construction.
Starting out as a civil engineer and superintendent, Mac spent 28 years with KCMO’s Public Works Department and rose to become its assistant director of water services. After that, Mac was tapped to be public works director for Jackson County, Missouri. Then as director of infrastructure and transportation for Johnson County, Kansas, for 12 years, Mac led 6 departments overseeing a $40 million annual budget, 75+ employees, and improvements and maintenance for 500 miles of roadways. Most recently, Mac served as client liaison for consulting firm Shafer, Kline & Warren. Mac graduated from University of Missouri at Rolla with a civil engineering degree.
