Vice President of Operations Jeromy Newton was sworn in as Chairman for the Associated Builders & Contractors Delaware Chapter. He has served on the board for four years and will lead the organization in his fifth year.
“I’m extremely passionate about the merit shop philosophy and the standards ABC upholds,” Newton said. “I look forward to working with all our committees and our members to make 2023 a very productive year for our companies and our organization.”
ABC is a national construction industry trade association founded on the merit shop philosophy. The organization helps its members “win work and deliver that work safely, ethically and profitability for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work.”
Some of Newton’s initiatives as Chairman include membership growth, continued development with the organization’s young professionals’ group, bringing back the Craft Championship, further meetings with legislators to promote the merit philosophy and free enterprise, and more.
“Jeromy brings great passion and leadership to our organization,” said ABC Delaware President Ed Capodanno. “He is a well-respected construction professional that will help us grow ABC Delaware statewide through quality training programs, membership growth, and safe worksites. We are excited to have him as our chair in 2023 and the continued support that Nickle Electrical Companies have provided our association over the years.”
Newton is the second Nickle employee to serve as ABC Delaware Chairman, as President/CEO Steve Dignan held the spot in 2001.
