Post Time:Mar 31,2012Classify:Company NewsView:347


Eric Waterman, the first CEO of the Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust (IMPACT), formally announced his retirement at the IMPACT board of trustees meeting Sunday. Waterman has been the CEO of the Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust since it was founded in April of 2003.


General President Walter Wise and William Brown, CEO of Ben Hur Construction Co. in St. Louis-co-chairs of the IMPACT board of trustees-say that Waterman's departure is "both a sad time for our organization, and a transformative one as well as we welcome a new generation of visionary leadership."


"I am excited that Eric will be able to reflect on his great accomplishments with the Iron Workers Union and IMPACT as he enjoys retirement," Wise says. "He has done an excellent job working with us to select a replacement, and we look forward to tapping into the new leader of IMPACT's energy and passion for the entire construction industry."


Brown adds, "Eric's work has had tremendous influence not only in the construction industry, but in the union industry as a whole, and his seminal ideas have led to the growth of a burgeoning labor-management movement. We are all grateful for his hard work and dedication."


Kevin Hilton, the current executive assistant to the CEO of IMPACT, will become CEO, having worked closely with Waterman both at the National Erectors Association and in his current capacity at IMPACT. Hilton has served IMPACT for two years and has been instrumental in pushing for updated, comprehensive drug testing procedures and more technologically savvy communications programs. Before coming to IMPACT, Hilton served more than 12 years as a senior vice president at the Association of Union Constructors (former NEA) and the National Maintenance Agreement Policy Committee (NMAPC).


"It is my great honor to succeed Eric Waterman-an icon in the construction industry," Hilton says. "As we charge headlong into the 21st century, it is my commitment to build upon Eric's innovation over the past nine years and continue to deliver stunning services to the entire ironworker and contractor community.".
