PCA Residential Director Honored in “Ten Most Infl uential People in the Concrete Industry” List

SKOKIE, Ill.–Concrete Construction magazine honored Michael H. Weber, PCA’s director of residential construction, as one of 2006’s “Ten Most Influential People in the Concrete Industry.” Weber was lauded for his efforts in marketing and promoting cement-based building systems and products for the residential construction industry.

Instrumental in the creation of National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) Concrete Home Building Council and its current president, Weber’s efforts to promote the use of residential concrete building systems has led to every New American Home since 2004 having a significant concrete aspect. The ‘New American Home’ is NAHB’s official show home and is toured each year during the International Builders’ Show.

Concrete Construction also highlighted the increased market share of concrete homes as solid evidence of Weber’s positive influence. In 2005 concrete homes accounted for 17.9 percent of all new single-family detached homes, up from 12.5 percent in 2000.

In addition to his leadership of the Concrete Home Building Council, Weber serves on several other industry committees including the Steering Committee for the Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH), the National Council of the Housing Industry (NCHI), and as voting member for the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Residential 332 Committee and Insulating Concrete Form 560 Committee.

Before joining PCA in 2000, Weber was vice president of operations with Johnson Poured Walls in Mattawan, Mich. He also served as director of training and product promotion with Consumers Concrete Corp., in Kalamazoo, Mich., the largest ready mixed concrete and block producer in the state. Weber worked at Consumers Concrete for 13 years after leaving his family’s ready mixed concrete and aggregate business in Ohio. He is a graduate of the University of Toledo with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration and is currently working on his master’s degree.
