AGC of California Adds Darryl Kysar as Vice President, Strategic Initiatives and Partnerships

(SACRAMENTO, California) – The Associated General Contractors of California (AGC of California) announced it has hired Darryl Kysar, formerly of Procore Technologies Inc., as vice president, strategic initiatives and partnerships effective immediately.

In this new role at the state’s largest construction industry association, Kysar will focus on external relationships to develop and implement AGC of California’s workforce development programs, operated in collaboration with the AGC Construction Education Foundation (AGC CEF), a 501(c)3 non-profit benefit corporation that develops training, education and career development programs and services for the current and future construction workforce.

Kysar previously served for three years on AGC CEF’s board of directors and helped develop and launch Build California, a comprehensive workforce development initiative that shapes positive perceptions of the construction industry and informs young people about real career opportunities in construction and connects them to local training programs.

“Darryl was instrumental to the development of Build California, and we are thrilled to have him on staff to help us continue developing quality programs to attract, develop and retain the current and next generation of the construction workforce,” said Erin Volk, AGC of California’s senior vice president, workforce and community development and executive director of AGC CEF, to whom he will report. “Thanks to his experience and his past work with AGC of California and AGC CEF, Darryl will be able to immediately help the organization tell the important story of our workforce development programs and help us build capacity for both greater impact and expansion of services.”

Kysar most recently served as a senior director of business development for Procore, where he worked for over 8 years building the construction management software company’s business development strategy and social impact program, which creates continuing education courses for the trades and skilled labor and offers product access to non-profit organizations and educational institutions.

“I am excited to continue my work with AGC of California on a full-time basis,” said Kysar. “I have spent most of my career advocating for careers in construction industry, and firmly believe that the work I have done has led to better opportunities for all that work in the industry.”
