Tommy K Daniel

Over the last 25 years in this industry, Tom Daniel has donated timeless hours to the masonry industry. He has served on local, state and national boards supporting our industry. Most MCAA presidents are great leaders but Tom was much more: he has been a mentor and role model. Like many great leaders, Tom is an unsung hero. Most things that he has done or accomplished are not realized by many but the affects of his work are felt by all.

Tom has been a volunteer judge at regional skills challenge contests, served on the California state masonry association board from 1998-2000, then moved on to the MCAA board between 2002-2010. Throughout his board commitments, Tom remained a representative of his local region and a regular supporter of industry sponsored fundraisers.

He clearly sees the framework of providing masonry contractors the best possible tools to encourage them to have profitable businesses. He visualizes the possibilities then encourages and promotes this industry from different perspectives. He helped create Vision 2020 a program designed with the primary goal of reclaiming and expanding the use of masonry in high-growth communities. As one of our industry’s biggest cheerleaders, he is constantly encouraging architects, general contractors and others to build with masonry. He understands the obstacles affecting the masonry industry and has tried to find ways to overcome these issues as an association. He understands our country’s current economic situation and how it affects masonry contractors’ livelihoods. As president of MCAA, he looked for ways to mitigate the impact of the economy to the masonry contractors’ bottom line.
