Martin Marietta Materials appointed Dorothy Ables to its board of directors.

With the appointment, the Martin Marietta Board now comprises 10 directors, four of whom joined since 2016. Ables will serve on Martin Marietta’s audit committee.

According to Martin Marietta, Ables brings significant financial and operational leadership experience to the Martin Marietta board. She served as chief administrative officer of Spectra Energy Corp. from 2008 until her retirement last year, culminating a more than 30-year career at Spectra Energy and its predecessor companies.

“Over the last several years, the nominating and corporate governance committee has further diversified and strengthened our board, ensuring that we have the right mix of skills and experience to continue building on Martin Marietta’s long track record of success,” says Ward Nye, chairman and CEO of Martin Marietta.

“As part of this continuous board refreshment process, we are pleased to add a leader of Dorothy’s caliber, and believe her financial acumen and wide-ranging C-suite management experience make her uniquely qualified,” Nye adds. “Dorothy is a well-known and highly regarded businessperson in Texas, which is a key market for Martin Marietta. We look forward to leveraging her deep knowledge of the state’s business and political environment, as well as the energy industry more broadly.”
