People on the Move


People on the Move highlights the career advancements of high-level trailblazers working professionally in diverse areas of standardization, contributing every day to the strength and success of the U.S. standards and conformance community.

The American Clean Power Association (ACP) has named Frank Macchiarola as chief policy officer. In his new role, he will lead a policy team working to develop the regulatory and legislative framework necessary to efficiently deploy the full suite of advanced clean energy technologies.

Macchiarola, who will join ACP on June 30, currently serves as senior vice president of policy, economics, and regulatory affairs at the American Petroleum Institute.

“The energy industry is going through a generational change; an entire sector of the global economy is being transformed. I have spent my career working on energy policy and I am eager to get to work to advance ACP’s commitment to secure, affordable, and clean domestic energy,” said Macchiarola. “I am excited to join the team at ACP and be a part of the next phase of the American energy revolution.”

“The clean energy sector is at a pivotal moment, and growing our team to embrace the opportunities before us will ensure this industry has the bench strength in place in order to match the moment. Frank is uniquely qualified to understand the speed and scale we need to move the organization forward and will partner with our dynamic team to make that happen,” said Jason Grumet, ACP’s chief executive officer. “I have no doubt that together, we will bring both sides of the aisle, and different constituencies and communities, together to meet our common goal, which is an America powered by clean, domestic energy.”


The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has named Frederick H. Grubbe as executive vice president.

Grubbe is currently president and chief executive officer of the National Precast Concrete Association. A Certified Association Executive, he has more than 25 years of non-profit executive leadership experience, with notable prior positions at the Appraisal Institute, American Fraternal Alliance (formerly the National Fraternal Congress of America), and the Think First Foundation. Previously, he served as director of strategic planning and special projects at the Million Dollar Round Table, along with positions at several other non-profit organizations.

In government roles, Grubbe worked at the U.S. Department of Transportation as a Special Assistant to the Secretary and White House Liaison, prior to serving as Deputy Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 1992, President George H.W. Bush appointed Grubbe as Deputy Director of the U.S. Office of Consumer Affairs in the White House. He is also an active member of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), currently serving on the Board of Directors for ASAE Business Solutions (ABSI), a for-profit subsidiary of ASAE.

He will join ACI in its Farmington Hills, MI headquarters on August 10. Current ACI executive vice president Ronald G. Burg will retire from ACI in August after 13 years of service to the Institute.

“As one of the premier global authorities on all things concrete, ACI will continue to elevate the design, construction, and most effective use of concrete worldwide,” Grubbe said. “Ron Burg, in concert with the Board of Direction, has provided superb leadership over the years to educate and enrich the knowledge base of individuals and organizations committed to concrete usage. While I have some very big shoes to fill, I look forward to the challenge ahead and am anxious to get started.”
