Changes are afoot within the South Carolina Alliance to Fix Our Roads (SCFOR).
The first will happen July 1 when executive director Bill Ross, who has been with SCFOR since 2012, will become the not-for-profit organization's president and CEO. In his new role, Ross will help promote the SCFOR mission; as he has always been, he will be the group's head spokesperson and will be instrumental in the development and implementation of its strategic plans.
Ross brings to SCFOR 45 years of association management and governmental affairs expertise. His resume includes time with the South Carolina Trucking Association and South Carolina Petroleum Council.
Also on July 1, SCFOR's associate director Jordan Marsh, who has been with the organization since 2014, will assume the role of VP and COO. He will be tasked with SCFOR's daily management, which will encompass membership development, implementation of SCFOR’s strategic plan and advocacy, government affairs, public relations and social media programs.
Marsh is a University of South Carolina graduate and holds a bachelor of arts degree in political science with a public relations minor. He has worked with South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and for the South Carolina Senate Finance Committee.
"Our organization will continue to encourage legislators to pass sustainable and long-term transportation infrastructure legislation," SCFOR Chairman Joel Reynolds said. "Further, we believe that the aforementioned management changes will maximize our effort to accomplish our goals set forth."
