BASF executive elected president of trade group

Jim Doyle, district sales manager for the southeastern region of BASF’s Wall Systems business, has been elected as the new president of the Florida Wall & Ceiling Contractors Association (FWCCA).

Doyle has been an active member of FWCCA since its inception in 1982 and has been on the board of directors for the past three years. In 2005, he was recognized with the FWCCA Lifetime Support Award.

Doyle stated he will focus on two key objectives for the association in the upcoming year. 

The first will be to advance the educational program for contractors and architects. The mission of the program, he said, will be “to promote the wall and ceiling industry to the contractor and architectural community.” The second key objective is to provide services and undertake activities that enhance the members’ ability to operate a successful business.

FWCCA, an affiliate of the Association of the Wall and Ceilings Industry (AWCI), represents the needs and concerns of Florida contractors in the wall and ceiling industry. It is supported by any company, person or partnership engaged in and/or supplying materials, equipment or ancillary services to the wall and ceiling industry within the state of Florida.

BASF’s Construction Chemicals division is a leading supplier of chemical systems and formulations for the construction industry. Its products include a wide range of items used in sports and industrial flooring, external renders and wall insulation, expansion joints, wood preservatives, as well as specialist repair mortars, tile adhesives and waterproofing membranes.
