On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Longtime local construction industry leader Gary Price has announced his resignation as president of Indiana Construction Roundtable and Metro Indianapolis Coalition for Construction Safety.

He also has sold his firm, The Mattison Corp., to Scott Grimes and Chris Price, a nephew, who serve as vice presidents of Mattison and as executive directors of its construction industry clients.

Besides ICR and MICCS, Mattison’s clients include the Indianapolis Chapter of the Indiana Facility Managers and Maintenance Association, Indiana Subcontractors Association and Electric League of Indiana.

Price Price

Price, who founded Mattison in 1988, will continue as a consultant to the company and its clients.

The 55-year-old said “he is too young to retire but old enough to know that the company and clients might benefit from the energy and enthusiasm of the next generation.”

Grimes and Chris Price are both in their 30s, Price said.

Mattison is an association management, event management, public relations and video production company that serves more clients in the construction industry than any other entity in the state. It has eight employees at its downtown office at 200 S. Meridian St.

Price graduated from Indiana University in 1978 and began his service in the construction industry in 1983, when he became executive director of the Associated Builders & Contractors of Indiana, an organization that represents nonunion contractors.

He previously served as executive director of the Indiana Real Estate Commission in 1981 and chief deputy secretary of state in 1983.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
