Kimble, President and Chief Executive Officer of Royal Electric Company, was elected to serve her second term as President of AGC of California's State Board. "This year, we recognize a diverse group of people and projects that represent how many facets of California life construction affects."

AGC of California's Constructor Awards program recognizes members' achievements for their skill, unique undertakings, and ability to address the most difficult challenges contractors encounter during project development.
