SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Associated General Contractors of California (AGC of California) is pleased to announce that Darla Macomber has been promoted to chief operating officer, a new position in the state’s leading construction industry association. In her new role, Macomber will oversee the development and implementation of all sales, recruitment, retention, government affairs services, engagement strategies, networking events, and communications.
“A long-time AGC of California staff member, Darla has helped shape our organization into a vital resource for our members and the construction industry at large,” said Peter Tateishi, chief executive officer of AGC of California, to whom Macomber reports. “Her work ethic and ideas paved her trajectory through our organization to become a shining example of what a career in construction can look like.”
