Lane’s Alger elected Round Table head
Robert E. Alger, president and CEO of The Lane Construction Corporation, has been elected chairman of the Construction Industry Round Table (CIRT).
Alger said he would work to build “a greater awareness with leaders outside of the industry as it relates to the desperate need to properly fund and improve our nation’s first-class infrastucture.”
“Bob’s selection continues a tradition of having strong leaders who represent the finest qualities and abilities in our industry,” commented Mark A. Casso, CIRT’s president. “Bob will bring energy and vision to the role of chairman, with a dynamic leadership style.”
Previously, Alger served with CIRT as vice chairman and treasurer before accepting his new position with the non-profit organization. Alger started his career at Lane 32 years ago after graduating from Penn State University with a degree in civil engineering. After serving as job engineer, project engineer, project manager and vice president, Alger became president and CEO in 2001. During his decade at the helm, Lane’s revenue has grown by $700 million—to more than $1 billion today.
Founded by railroad engineer John S. Lane in 1890, Lane constructs quality highways, bridges, locks, dams, racetracks, and mass transit and airport systems in 20 states.
CIRT is a national business trade association with more than 100 chief executive officers from the leading design/construction companies in the United States and globally. Member firms directly employ more than 500,000 people, and are responsible for more than $120 billion in public and private infrastructure projects.
