Peter Tateishi, president and CEO of the Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, will start 2018 as the new CEO of the West Sacramento-based Associated General Contractors of California.
AGC made the announcement Wednesday, noting that Tateishi will succeed Tom Holsman, who previously announced that he was leaving the organization after 32 years.
Tateishi, who assumes his new duties Jan. 1 after completing his contract obligations with the Sacramento chamber, will oversee AGC’s statewide advocacy efforts, industrial relations, safety/compliance training and workforce development.
“The construction industry fell on some very difficult times but has seen a huge boom over the past few years. It still faces many challenges, especially a shortage in its workforce, but this industry is vibrant and strong and will continue to build the economy and future of California,” Tateishi said in a statement accompanying Wednesday’s announcement.
Tateishi is a past CEO of the Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange.
