Jerry Geraghty, president and CEO of Rogers Group Inc., announced his retirement from the company. Darin Matson, who has held several key leadership positions within Rogers Group during his 27-year career in the aggregates industry, was elected to the role of president and CEO, effective April 1.

Geraghty served Rogers Group since joining the company’s board of directors in 1999. He was appointed executive vice president and COO in 2003 and elected president and CEO in 2005. Geraghty will maintain a seat on the 108-year-old company’s board of directors.

According to the company, Geraghty’s first priority for all employees was always safety. Geraghty was dedicated to industry causes, as well, through the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA), the American Road & Transportation Builders Association and other trade organizations. He received the Barry K. Wendt Memorial Commitment Award from NSSGA this year.

“Our company, our industry and our communities have all benefited from Jerry’s commitment to excellence driven by his passion to make the world a better place,” says Ben Rechter, chairman of the Rogers Group board.

Rogers Group provides crushed stone, sand, gravel, asphalt and highway construction to the south-central United States.
