As president, Young will oversee AGC’s efforts to advocate for measures to boost demand for construction activity by enacting pro-growth tax and trade policies and making much-needed investments to the nation’s aging infrastructure.

In addition to Young, AGC inaugurated Joseph Jarboe, senior vice president of Clark Construction Group, Bethesda, Md., as senior vice president.  Paul Diederich, president of Industrial Builders, Inc., West Fargo, N.D., is AGC’s new vice president, and Howard Pebley, president of McAllen Construction, Inc., McAllen, Texas, is the treasurer.
