heard along the highway Alabama Road Builders Association Names Tom Layfield as New Executive Director Tom Layfield, former Vice President of Governmental Affairs for the Alabama Bankers Association, started in August as the new Executive Director of the Alabama Road Builders Association succeeding Billy Norrell. Norrell, who has served as Executive Director at ARBA for almost 16 years, has been named CEO of the Alabama AGC (Associated General Contractors). “Bringing Tom into the road building family presents a tremendous opportunity for ARBA,” said 2013 ARBA President Craig Fleming. “I would like to thank Chris Newell (Search Committee Chairman) and the rest of the committee for their tireless efforts during this transition. The committee came to a unanimous decision on this important choice. We had a strong list of candidates expressing interest in this position and are honored by their participation. In the end, Tom is the candidate who best fit our needs.” “It is a real thrill to be named Executive Director of the Alabama Road Builders Association,” Layfield said “I will do my best to serve the needs of the membership as Billy always did. It is an honor to join such an elite organization – one that is so well thought of throughout all of Alabama. I am greatly appreciative of the Board for this opportunity and look forward to hitting the ground running.” Layfield has more than 15 years of association management and governmental affairs experience. He and his wife Lauren live in Montgomery.
