2012 AGC President has Strong Family Ties to the AGC

Pierre, SD - The Associated General Contractors of South Dakota, Heavy-Highway-Utilities Chapter is proud to announce their 2012 President, Nathan Reede, Upper Plains Contracting, Inc.  Nathans involvement in the AGC began years ago as his father, Neil V. Reede, became an association member shortly after Upper Plains Contracting was incorporated in 1993. Neil served as the AGC President in 2001 and now Nathan takes his reign as the 2012 president. The Reede’s are only one of five families in AGC history that have served as a father/son duo as president.

“After losing my father in 2007, it became important to me to continue my involvement with the AGC because of his passion for the association. It felt natural for me to follow in his footsteps and climb the leadership ladder to become president. I never want people to forget the man my dad was or the things he did for our industry” said Nathan.

Reede passed away from cancer in 2007. Since then Nathan has taken over the family business, plans and hosts an annual Neil V. Reede benefit golf tournament and even donated the funds for a locker room in his dads name at Northern State University.

“I’m humbled to serve in the capacity my father did for the AGC many years ago. I know he’d be proud of me for leading an association so driven to better the construction industry.” Nathan stated.

The AGC of South Dakota, Highway-Heavy-Utilities Chapter, is a voluntary trade association of more than 250 contractors, suppliers and service firms who build the roads, bridges and water/wastewater infrastructure in South Dakota.
