Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of the Carolinas says Angela Latino will be the association’s new president and chief executive officer, effective on June 1.
ABC Carolinas board chair Bill Caldwell of Waldrop Mechanical had been interim president/CEO since earlier this year when a candidate to replace former president Doug Carlson backed out at the last minute, forcing the association to restart its search for the key position.
Caldwell wrote the association’s bi-weekly communicate that some 35 candidates expressed an interest in leading the chapter. Latino won the competition after working as president and CEO of ABC’s New Orleans/Bayou chapter in Louisiana.
“In addition to managing day-to-day chapter operations, she oversaw the planning, development and implementation of operations for a stand-aloe Construction Training Campus that is used to recruit, retain and educate the skilled workforce in the area,” Caldwell wrote. She has strong ties with ABC National – recently serving as chair of the nNational Chapter Presidents Council, and the Presidents’ Liaison to the National Board Executive Committee.
Caldwell said Latino “has a strong background in fundraising and community/industry service.” She is a Tulane University graduate.
