“Mike has served the Foundation in many capacities over the years,” stated Ann Daugherty, Executive Director, ACI Foundation. “He has translated his passion for the industry into actively raising funds to support several student fellowships, leading innovative initiatives on new technologies, and advocating the importance of research. The ACI Foundation is honored to have Mike as the new chair; his dedication to the industry and advocacy for the ACI Foundation make him an excellent choice for the position.”
Schneider is a former ACI President, former Chair of the Strategic Development Council Board of Direction, and a member of the Concrete Research Council. He currently serves as Vice President and Chief People Officer at Baker Concrete Construction, Inc., in Monroe, OH, USA.
As Schneider transitions into the position as Chair of the ACI Foundation, the ACI Foundation extends its gratitude to former Chair, Jeffrey Coleman, The Coleman Law Firm, LLC, for his successful leadership. Coleman will remain on the Board of Trustees in the capacity of ACI Vice President. “Jeff provided strong leadership as the Foundation shifted its governance, financial models, set new policies, and embarked on fundraising,” noted Daugherty. “Over his year as the Chair, Jeff supported positive changes that will foster greater impact and progress in promoting innovation, funding research, and investing in students.”
