MAPEI said two of its executives will work closely with industry associations in leadership roles. Jeff Leone, MAPEI's director of strategic marketing, has been named manufacturer representative on the National Tile Contractors Association's Board of Directors. Additionally, Dr. Neil McMurdie, MAPEI's director of research and development, has been named third vp of the Materials & Methods Standards Association.
McMurdie said he is proud to be elected to the MMSA, a group which advises both the Tile Council of North America and the American National Standards Institute on specification recommendations for tile and stone installations. “The Materials & Methods Standards Association is a group of dedicated individuals who are trying to better our industry, and I am proud to be a part of that effort. The steps we take today will help members of the tile and stone industry work more efficiently and effectively in the future,” he said.
