(Posted on 13/08/19)

The Portland Cement Association (PCA), representing America’s Cement Manufacturers, is pleased to announce additions to its executive team in Government Affairs, Communications and Finance. The PCA, founded in 1916, is the premier policy research, education, and market intelligence organization serving America’s cement manufacturers. PCA members represent 93 percent of U.S. cement production capacity and have facilities in all 50 states.

“I think these hires will mesh nicely with our current talented and hard-working staff,” said Michael Ireland, PCA President and CEO. “They, like the rest of the PCA staff, are here to serve the American cement industry now and into the future.”

Senior VP of Government Affairs: Sean O’Neill

Previously he served as Director of Government Affairs at the International Association of Fire Fighters, Special Assistant to Secretary Elaine Chao and Chief of Staff for Congressman John Sweeney.

Ferrari was previously Director of Publishing and Content Development at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He was also the CEO of Erdos and Morgan, a marketing and media research company and Executive Vice President at American Business Media. He’s also held senior positions at Crain Communications.

Chief Financial Officer: Debra Adlis

Adlis will serve as Treasurer and CFO for PCA, while also serving as Executive VP of Finance for the National Ready Mix Concrete Association. Adlis has led non-profit finance teams at the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, the Immune Deficiency Foundation and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
