NARI Elects Officers

April 23, 2012

During its spring House of Delegates meeting, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry named Michael Hydeck of Hydeck Design Build in Telford, Pa., as its chairman of the board. The organization also elevated Dean Herriges of Urban Herriges & Sons Inc. in Mukwonago, Wis. to the office of president.

“NARI members have assisted in government affairs initiatives and were instrumental in the EPA’s decision to not add the clearance test to the Lead Renovation, Repair & Painting Rule,” Hydeck says, reflecting the organization's success of the past year. “In addition, three independent remodeling associations have joined NARI as new chapters.”

“My focus this year is three-pronged,” states Herriges. “First, NARI is committed to enhancing member value by providing innovative technologies designed to help members achieve greater business success. Next, we are expanding our industry presence and our voice in Washington through development of a research program that focuses on industry trends and the profile of NARI members. Finally, we will continue to push the NARI name and values associated with hiring NARI members to consumers.”

Herriges assumed the role of president after serving as president-elect for the past year. Hydeck most recently served in the immediate past president role.

The remaining officers, also elected and announced during the meeting, include: Fred Spaulding of Quality Home Improvements Inc. in Kingwood, Texas, as president-elect; Art Donnelly of Legacy Builders & Remodelers Corp., in Holbrook, N.Y., as treasurer; and Kevin Anundson of Owner Assisted Remodeling in Elm Grove, Wis., as secretary.
