Orange Park, FL (December 9, 2020): With ten years under his belt serving in Pile Driving Contractors Association (PDCA) leadership roles, Rich Anderson has been appointed by the Board of Directors to serve as the new Chairman of the Membership Committee.
"One of the biggest advantages to driving membership at the Chapter level was the level of cooperation among all the members," recalled Anderson, who began his PDCA involvement at the PDCA Northeast Chapter in 2011. "We had a strong, team approach that led to successful Chapter growth. This underlying principal absolutely translates to membership at the national level and we will work to realize organizational cooperation to its fullest potential."
In 2020, Anderson completed a five-year tenure on the PDCA Board of Directors and sought an opportunity to stay involved. His colleagues recognized his abilities as a growth agent and unanimously named him to lead the Committee. Prior to his service to the national organization, he was an officer for the New Jersey-based PDCA Northeast Chapter.
Rich Anderson is the Branch Manager of the Philadelphia region for the Equipment Corporation of America (ECA), a role he has held since 2017. At ECA, he oversees 18 employees and manages an area which includes New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and all of New Jersey. He joined sales operations at the construction equipment giant in 2010 before elevating to his current role.
Leading to a career in the construction industry, Anderson earned his bachelor's degree in Marketing from St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia, while competing as a student athlete on the cross country and track teams. Outside of his work, Rich and his wife Chrissy are happily married and living in Westchester, PA with their four children who are five years and younger, including two-year-old twins. Leisure time is minimal, but when he gets an opportunity, Rich enjoys playing golf.
