American Infrastructure Ranked Second on Chief Executive Magazine's List of Top Private Companies for Leaders

WORCESTER, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- American Infrastructure, a leading heavy civil construction company and materials supplier, announced today that it has been named to Chief Executive Magazine's 2013 Top Companies for Leaders. The company is currently ranked second on the list of private companies who excel in leadership development, up two places from its 2012 position.

In the January/February 2013 issue of Chief Executive, authors Dr. Jenna Filipkowski and J. P. Donlon report that, since 2005, the magazine "has sought to identify the top global companies that seek to develop talent beyond the CEO's direct reports, with the view that every CEO, regardless of the size of the company he or she leads, can learn to be a better nurturer of talent and builder of teams."

Private companies, the magazine notes, are listed separately from public companies because public companies enjoy greater resources to devote to leadership development. It is noteworthy that the private companies can nonetheless share the recognition spotlight with public companies such as number one-ranked Proctor and Gamble, with General Electric, IBM, Dow Chemical, and Verizon Communications rounding out the top five positions.

American Infrastructure's Chairman and CEO, A. Ross Myers, says he is pleased that the company has been recognized in this way. "Our growth trajectory absolutely requires that we build a deep bench of next-generation leaders with the skills to complement that growth. We have long believed that nurturing those from within who have demonstrated the potential, the desire and the commitment to lead, is a must for an industry-leading company. This recognition tells me we're doing the right thing."
