NCCER Names Worsham as President and CEO


Sept. 25, 2020 – NCCER has named its current president, Boyd Worsham, as both president and chief executive officer. The appointment to CEO became effective Sept. 3.

NCCER has been implementing a formal succession plan over the last two years to fill the leadership position Don Whyte has held since 2003.

In 2018, Worsham, formerly of The Haskell Company, Jacksonville, Florida, was identified as the successor to lead NCCER into the future while Whyte remained on board as CEO to provide guidance and support during the transition.

In March of 2020, Worsham was given full operational oversight of NCCER and has quickly earned the confidence of the NCCER staff and executive committee.

After careful consideration over past months, the executive committee recommended that the  NCCER Board of Trustees promote Worsham to president and CEO. The board unanimously supported the recommendation.


“Throughout the pandemic, Boyd has proven to be a confident leader who understands what NCCER means to the industry and craft professionals,” said Michael W. Bennett, 2020 chairman of the NCCER Board. “We congratulate Boyd, and the entire team, in this historic moment for NCCER.”

“I strongly believe in our industry and NCCER’s role in continuing to solve the workforce challenges facing construction today,” said Worsham. “I am honored to lead this organization and look forward to what the future brings.”

The NCCER Board of Trustees thanks Don Whyte for his service and leadership which has provided the guidance and financial stability for the organization to thrive and grow for over 25 years.

Whyte will remain connected to NCCER as the senior advisor to the executive committee for the remainder of 2020.
