“Aggregates are the foundation for our country’s infrastructure,” says Dunne. “I look forward to bringing my experience to this great industry and leading efforts to promote a clear understanding of their critical nature to federal policymakers, media and communities across America.”

Mike Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO, expressed confidence in Dunne’s ability to contribute to the association’s three-year growth strategy, Rocks Build America.

“Our industry must have a strategic communications plan that educates policymakers and the public about the aggregates industry,” he says. “Patrick is a welcome addition to our team and complements our ongoing strategic communications efforts as we continue to implement our Rocks Build America strategic plan.”

Dunne graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. He currently serves as the secretary for the board of directors of the Metro Washington, D.C., chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association.
