NSSGA appoints Edwards as president, CEO

By |  October 31, 2012

Gus Edwards, NSSGA’s executive vice president since 2008, has been elected by the board of directors to succeed Joy Pinniger as the association’s president and CEO upon her retirement Nov. 2.

Edwards began his service with the National Stone Association (NSA) in 1997 as vice president for public affairs. After the merger of NSA and the National Aggregates Association in 2000, he continued as vice president of communications and community relations until his appointment as executive vice president.

Before joining NSA, Edwards served as vice president for environment, health and safety with The Jefferson Group, a Washington, D.C., consulting firm. He had previously served as U.S. deputy assistant secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and deputy assistant administrator for external affairs at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Those appointments were preceded by 12 years working on Capitol Hill as chief of staff to a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and a U.S. senator.

Edwards, his wife, Anne, and their two daughters reside in Alexandria, Va.
