ARTBA Treasurer Tom Hill has been selected “AggMan of the Year” for 2016 by industry publication Aggregates Manager.

Hill is CEO of Denver-based Summit Materials.  He served two consecutive terms as ARTBA chairman from 2002-2004, and has been treasurer since 2005.

“What Hill has accomplished in less than a decade at Summit Materials is impressive, but how he has done so is even more noteworthy,” the publication says in its Dec. 1 award profile. “His quiet humility and self-deprecation are both refreshing and engaging.”

“Tom Hill has been one of the transportation construction industry’s preeminent leaders of the past three decades,” ARTBA President & CEO Pete Ruane says in the story. “What makes Tom special as a volunteer association leader is his clarity and candor when speaking to federal and state policymakers about the importance of strong transportation investment.”
