WASHINGTON - Kevin Gill, president of McCusker-Gill Inc., Hingham, Mass., received the SMACNA Contractor of the Year award at the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association's (SMACNA's) 60th annual convention.

"Kevin championed the cause of elevating his fellow contractors to the level of high-performing contractor," said SMACNA president Jack Desmond. "Not only did he take a leading role in publishing Creating the High-Performing Contracting Company-Best Practices for SMACNA Contractors, he negotiated the services of a prominent industry consultant to assist SMACNA members in pursuing, achieving, and maintaining increasingly higher levels of company and individual competence."

According to the association, the book is a hands-on primer for management to use in assessing a company's approach to leadership, planning, building customer relationships, monitoring business operations, and evaluating the quality of financial and operational results. "Kevin's role in providing affordable consulting services to deliver this powerful strategy makes this program incredibly attractive for both large and small contracting firms," Desmond said.

In addition, Gill is an active participant on the Convention Sponsorship Task Force and the Associate Advisory Committee. His service includes membership on the board of directors from 1999 to 2003, the Convention Committee, the Budget and Finance Committee, Multi-Service Chapter Application and Selection Committee, the Building Services Committee, Duct Design Committee, and Human Resources Task Force.

His leadership on behalf of SMACNA includes an active role on the International Training Institute Board of Trustees, the National Energy Management Institute Committee, and the NEMI/NEMIC Marketing Committee.
