Members of the American Subcontractors Association (ASA) elected Letitia “Tish” Haley Barker to serve as its 2015-16 president. Barker, who will succeed Brian Johnson of Soil Consultants, is president of Dallas-based curtainwall contractor Haley-Greer Inc.
“I am honored and humbled to be chosen as your next president. Thank you all for your confidence,” she said in her acceptance speech on March 28 during ASA’s annual business meeting in Seattle. “It is always an honor to lead and sometimes a scary proposition. You always have huge shoes to fill and this year is no different for me. Brian Johnson and the other past presidents before him have left a legacy of passion, sincerity, as well as success, and now I hope to continue down that same path.”
Barker, who currently serves as the 2014-15 ASA vice president, said her term would be dedicated to the theme “Build It Bigger,” the subject of a new ASA membership drive. She was originally appointed to fill a vacancy on the ASA board of directors in 2010 and has also served as a member of ASA’s chapter leadership council.
According to the association, Barker has been a leader in the ASA-North Texas Chapter for several years. She served as ASA-NTC president in 2008-09 and remains on the chapter’s board of directors. She previously served as chair of the ASA-NTC’s GC awards night committee and is active on the government affairs committee.
Also representing the glass industry, Courtney Little, president of Ace Glass Construction Corp., was elected to serve as treasurer. The new terms begin on July 1.
