The California Construction & Industrial Materials Association (CalCIMA) selected Robert Dugan as its new president and CEO.

Dugan succeeds Gary Hambly, who served CalCIMA as president and CEO since 2007.

“We are excited to bring Robert on board since he brings a combination of issues management, government relations and communications experience to the position, as well as knowledge of our industry,” says Mike Toland, president at Spragues Ready Mix, who also serves as chair of the CalCIMA board of directors.

Hambly also offered a hearty welcome to his successor.

“Robert has always exhibited exceptional acumen and skills in addressing government and public relations challenges,” Hambly says. “Combined with an understanding of members’ working environments, he is an excellent choice to lead CalCIMA in the coming years.”

Dugan was previously the vice president of advocacy and public affairs for the Associated General Contractors of California. Prior to that position, Dugan was director of government affairs at Granite Construction in northern California.

“We are extremely grateful for Robert’s leadership in rebuilding and strengthening the government affairs and labor relations teams at AGC,” says Peter Tateishi, CEO at the Associated General Contractors of California. “While we will miss Robert’s vision, direction and presence within our team, we appreciate the unique opportunity for him and for a strengthened relationship between our two associations.”

According to CalCIMA, Dugan has more than 35 years of experience working in the state legislature, lobbying for construction, utility and academic institutions. Dugan’s previous work included executing public policy and advocacy programs at the local, state and federal level.

CalCIMA is a trade association for companies producing materials necessary for construction, manufacturing and agriculture in California. The materials include aggregate, concrete and asphalt to maintain and build California’s roads, bridges, homes, schools, hospitals and waterways, as well as minerals to improve soils, foods, paint, wallboard and electric car batteries.
