American Infrastructure Ranked Second on Chief Executive Magazine's List of Top Private Companies for Leaders
WORCESTER, PA, Feb 04, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
American Infrastructure, a leading heavy civil construction company
and materials supplier, announced today that it has been named to
Chief Executive Magazine's 2013 Top Companies for Leaders. The
company is currently ranked second on the list of private companies
who excel in leadership development, up two places from its 2012
In the January/February 2013 issue of Chief Executive, authors Dr.
Jenna Filipkowski and J. P. Donlon report that, since 2005, the
magazine "has sought to identify the top global companies that seek
to develop talent beyond the CEO's direct reports, with the view that
every CEO, regardless of the size of the company he or she leads, can
learn to be a better nurturer of talent and builder of teams."
Private companies, the magazine notes, are listed separately from
public companies because public companies enjoy greater resources to
devote to leadership development. It is noteworthy that the private
companies can nonetheless share the recognition spotlight with public
companies such as number one-ranked Proctor and Gamble, with General
Electric, IBM, Dow Chemical, and Verizon Communications rounding out
the top five positions.
American Infrastructure's Chairman and CEO, A. Ross Myers, says he is
pleased that the company has been recognized in this way. "Our growth
trajectory absolutely requires that we build a deep bench of
next-generation leaders with the skills to complement that growth. We
have long believed that nurturing those from within who have
demonstrated the potential, the desire and the commitment to lead, is
a must for an industry-leading company. This recognition tells me
we're doing the right thing."
