The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) presented David Thomey of Martin Marietta with the 2021 Barry K. Wendt Commitment Award during NSSGA’s Annual Convention.

“The Barry K. Wendt Memorial Commitment Award is our industry’s highest honor, and we are thrilled to present this to David Thomey of Martin Marietta,” says Mike Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO. “Having served as a past NSSGA chairman, Thomey has been an important voice for our industry. His dedicated career truly embodies the meaning of this award.”

According to NSSGA, Thomey was recognized for his commitment to the industry and his community. Currently the Maryland community relations manager at Martin Marietta, Thomey has a long history of leadership in the aggregate industry. 

Thomey served as chairman, president and CEO of the Maryland Aggregates Association, as well as COO and board chairman of NSSGA.

As a lasting memorial to Wendt, who exemplified commitment to family, career and the aggregate industry, NSSGA’s Manufacturers & Services Division established the annual Barry K. Wendt Commitment Award in 1998 to recognize individuals in the industry who exhibit the dedication Wendt exhibited – both in commitment to the industry and the community in which they live.
