NER President Named in ‘Top 25 Newsmakers’ List by Engineering News-Record

NEW YORK, NY, January 16, 2008 — Engineering News-Record, a leading construction industry publication, has named National Equipment Register President David Shillingford as one of “The Top 25 Newsmakers of 2007.”

Considered by many to be the bible of the construction industry, Engineering News-Record (ENR) is published by McGraw-Hill. Subscribers include more than 70,000 contractors, project owners, engineers, architects, government regulators, and industry suppliers. Each year, the editors of ENR choose 25 leaders in the construction industry for innovations and achievements that were featured in the publication that calendar year.  The newsmakers will be honored at lunch and dinner events on April 3, 2008, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

According to ENR, “Many people, in many ways, serve the best interests of the construction industry. The editors of ENR have chosen the following individuals for innovations and achievements featured in the magazine in 2007.”

“It is a great honor, but one that must be shared with those who have made NER possible: the insurers, equipment owners, and manufacturers who have supported our efforts; the police officers who investigate equipment crimes; ISO for funding the enterprise; and last — but by no means least — the skilled and dedicated staff of NER,” noted Mr. Shillingford.
