Larry Knox Chosen to Serve on QUOIN / AGC Board of Directors
Vice President of Preconstruction for Bob Moore Construction Named to Prestigious Industry Group
ARLINGTON, TEXAS - January 21, 2008 - Larry Knox, Vice President of Preconstruction for Bob Moore Construction, has been selected to serve on the board of directors for QUOIN, the north and east Texas chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).
The AGC is the oldest and largest organization in the construction industry, going back to 1919. With over 1,100 member companies, QUOIN is the AGC chapter for a large portion of Texas from Dallas / Fort Worth east to the Louisiana border, and north to the Oklahoma border.
QUOIN's board of directors is comprised of 24 senior construction professionals in the area, and provides leadership, oversight and direction to the chapter. Initiatives taken on by the board include representing the industry's interests in the development of federal, state and local legislation; driving better business practices in the community regarding environmental control, safety and productivity; working with community officials to improve business development opportunities in the region; and expanding the organization's membership.
Larry Knox was chosen from the several thousand employees with QUOIN's 1,100+ members to serve as a member of the organization's board. He will serve on the board for a three-year term, running through 2010.
Mr. Knox has been a highly respected industry professional for 35 years, and a member of AGC for 18 years. Most recently, he managed two successful Region V Student Design/Build Competitions for QUOIN.
"This is a tremendous honor and a great opportunity," said Mr. Knox. "I have always felt that being a member of AGC sets us apart. AGC members have tremendous educational programs in a variety of construction-related subjects, from safety to professional development and superintendent training, to LEED Green Building standards. In Texas, QUOIN has a tremendous positive impact on our industry, and our communities as well. By joining QUOIN you are making a commitment to standards of conduct and ethics that are invaluable to our clients, our employees and the industry. AGC members are seen as better trained and more professional than other companies, and I believe there's a good reason for that. I'm excited to be a part of the board and support the chapter's continued efforts for the next three years."
"I feel that QUOIN made an outstanding choice in the selection of Larry Knox to their board of directors," said Phillip Bell, President of Bob Moore Construction. "Larry is widely recognized by our employees, subcontractors and developers as an industry expert and leader of great stature and integrity. For as long as I've known him he has been a passionate, devoted advocate for the AGC as well. I'm confident Larry will prove to be a huge asset to QUOIN over the next three years.
"Larry's acceptance to the board says a great deal about our standing in the local industry and our commitment to the ideals of QUOIN and AGC as well," Mr. Bell added. "Our business values, to continually improve our operations, to maintain safe work environments, to represent the industry with integrity, all of those priorities we live by mirror the AGC standards of Skill, Integrity and Responsibility. In previous years we have established our 'AGC bona fides' with our selection as General Contractor of the Year, our various Summit and Construction Excellence Awards and our extensive involvement with QUOIN's safety program. I think Larry stepping in to a leadership position within the organization is a very logical, positive next step for QUOIN and for us."
