Milestone Contractors Steve Friess Wraps up a Busy Year as Chairman of ACPA National Board of Directors

Steve Friess, Vice President of Concrete Operations at Milestone Contractors, LP, became Chairman of the ACPA Board of Directors (National) at the association’s annual meeting in Nashville, TN on December 1, 2022.  As 2023 comes to a close, Steve is wrapping up a very busy year at the helm of the national board of directors. ACPA (national) President and CEO Laura O’Neil Kaumo offered the following on Steve’s year as Chairman:

ACPA Chairman Steve Friess. Steve’s commitment and boundless energy have offered inspiration to many of our members and the ACPA staff. Steve has travelled across the country meeting with members, attending shows, and bringing in member prospects. It is tough to catch Steve, but when you do, you are certain to have a good laugh, talk paving, and likely raise a glass to all that’s good. Steve is a dedicated Chairman, with extensive contracting knowledge…and mostly, a heck of a guy! Thank you, Steve!”

Thank You Steve for your leadership and tireless energy!

Indiana Chapter ACPA’s First Executive Director, Mike Byers Retiring

After over 35 years of service to Indiana’s concrete paving industry, the first Executive Director of the Indiana Chapter APCA, Mike Byers is retiring at the end of 2023. Mike has served this industry with distinction and honor, building trust with agencies, industry, and academia through sound engineering and economic principles to ensure our members have ready access to the best practices in concrete pavement design, construction and maintenance as technology continues to evolve.  His grasp of material science and civil engineering and construction is matched by his practical understanding of market dynamics and the benefits of competition.

Mike spearheaded the effort to establish advanced concrete pavement related research at Purdue University in the name of ACPA and the effort has yielded some remarkable revelations and even more enlightening discovery through new research associates and professors at his Alma Mater. Boiler Up!

We wish Mike and his wife Patricia a wonderful retirement… but we’re going to keep his mobile phone working… because he’s a wealth of knowledge and counsel! Thank you for all you’ve done Mike!
