Bob Gasperow Retires from CLRC; Cary Peters Becomes New Executive Director
Carey L. Peters, Ph.D., has been named the new executive director of the Construction Labor Research Council (CLRC) effective February 22, succeeding Bob Gasperow who is retiring after over 30 years of distinguished service. Gasperow began his tenure at CLRC with the organization’s founding in 1979 and is responsible for establishing CLRC as the nation’s foremost source of labor cost and related information for the unionized sector of the construction industry. Gasperow will continue to serve CLRC on a part-time, consulting basis through October.
Peters comes to CLRC after 14 years with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), the nation’s largest public power company, where he conducted extensive market studies on wages/salaries and benefits, led all compensation related negotiations with the construction trades, and implemented a wide variety of human resources initiatives. He earned his doctorate degree in industrial/organizational psychology at the University of Tennessee and has a bachelor’s degree from Taylor University. Peters is committed to maintaining the preeminent position of CLRC while also expanding the scope of the products and services offered by the organization.
