Associated Subcontractors of Massachusetts Set to Elect New Officers and Board Members

Boston –  Associated Subcontractors of Massachusetts (ASM), the commonwealth’s leading trade association for the subcontracting industry, will elect a new slate of officers and board members at its Biennial Dinner Gala, held at the State Room in downtown Boston on Thursday evening, November 14.

Taking the helm of ASM will be Richard R. Fisher, president of Red Wing Construction, a Beverly-based firm that provides a range of specialty services from architectural millwork to energy management systems.

In addition to his serving as a member of ASM’s Board of Directors, he is a former director of the Architectural Millwork Institute, and a member of the Massachusetts Building Congress and the Lean Construction Institute.  Fisher brings 30 years industry experience at all levels, including private and public sector institutional, commercial, and multi-residential construction, as well as real estate development expertise.

“Our association represents a multitude of specialty trades, and our board members reflect that broad expertise,” said outgoing ASM President David G. Cannistraro, whose two-year tenure as president elapses this fall. “We’re confident the leadership team that’s about to serve for the next two years is very well-positioned to help the subcontracting industry in Massachusetts capitalize on the rebounding economy, and assist in ASM’s continued growth.”

Fisher will be joined by a team of officers that includes president-elect Joseph H. Bodio of LAN-TEL Communications; vice president Steven P. Kenney of N.B. Kenney Company; vice president James Miller of Salem Glass Company; and treasurer Russell J. Anderson of Southeastern Metal Fabricators.

The elections take place during ASM’s upcoming Biennial Dinner Gala, a celebration for subcontracting industry professionals and related service providers that features live music, industry awards, and local media personality Billy Costa, who will be the evening’s guest master of ceremonies.

Three members who have been active in ASM affairs will serve their first terms as Directors on ASM’s Board: Nardine J. Bellew, President and CEO of General Safety Services, Inc., a leading provider of fall protections systems, window cleaning, and professional engineering services; Matthew Brown, Chief Financial Officer of Greenwood Industries, an award-winning roofing contractor whose projects include last year’s re-roofing of the Massachusetts State House in Boston; and William F. Rucci, Jr., partner in the Boston area accounting and business advisory firm Rucci, Bardaro & Falzone PC.

A number of board members will be returning to the Board for an additional term: Past President David G. Cannistraro, J.C. Cannistraro, LLC; and Directors George A. Allen, Archer Corporation; Steven T. Amanti, E. Amanti & Sons, Inc.; Roger A. Fuller, R&R Window Contractors, Inc.; Wayne J. Griffin, Wayne J. Griffin Electric Inc.; Robert B.
