Associated Builders and Contractors Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter has hired Mary Tebeau of Blue Bell, Pa., as its new president and chief executive officer. Tebeau will manage daily activities of the chapter’s offices in East Norriton, Pa., and Allentown, Pa., and will further merit construction throughout the region.

“Mary’s background in ABC, association management and the construction industry prepares her to lead our chapter into the next 50 years,” said Mark McMahon, 2012 ABC Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter chairman and vice president at Delran Builders Company. “She helped build a stronger chapter in Ohio and led many efforts to advance open shop construction in the Buckeye State. We’re looking forward to what she will accomplish in the Keystone State.”

Prior to joining the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter, Tebeau was president and CEO of the Central Ohio Chapter in Columbus for 11 years. During this time she guided the chapter to increased membership, a more established committee structure and moved the office and training facility under one roof to create an enhanced presence in central Ohio. She led the chapter’s efforts to defeat a potential project labor agreement on a local minor league baseball stadium, and received a victorious legal verdict from the Ohio Supreme Court regarding how the state views “prevailing wage violations.” Through ABC National Tebeau has served on the President’s Council for Region 6 and on the Careers in Construction Committee.

Tebeau served on the board of the Ohio Society of Association Executives and was the board chair last year. In addition, she was elected to the board of The Ohio State University’s Varsity O Women’s Athletic Alumnae Society and served as that group’s chair for two years.

Tebeau assumes the leadership role from Jeff Zeh, who will retire July 1 after 13 years as president and CEO of the chapter.
