The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA) has named Vincent R. Sandusky its new executive vice president. Sandusky will be responsible for the implementation of all policies, programs and services established by the SMACNA Board of Directors. In addition to serving as a nonvoting member of the association’s executive committee and the association’s educational foundation, he will manage the executive staff. He replaces John Sroka who is retiring after more than two decades.
Sandusky brings to SMACNA more than 30 years of industry-specific experience most recently serving as chief executive officer of the Finishing Contractors Association (FCA). FCA represents union-signatory specialty contractors.
“Vince is well prepared to advance the interests of union sheet metal and air conditioning contractors,” said SMACNA President Ron Palmerick.
Previously, Sandusky was president of the American Public Communications Council, a national telecommunications industry trade association representing independent payphone service providers. He also served as chief executive of the for-profit subsidiary. In addition, he was executive vice president of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America.
