Charlie Johnson of DSC Dredge Passes NSSGA’s M&S Division Leadership to Mark Krause of McLanahan

Posted on April 5, 2024

On Saturday, March 23rd, 2024, at the NSSGA’s Gavel Exchange dinner held at the prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, DSC Dredge’s Director of Domestic Dredge Sales, Charlie Johnson, passed the gavel to Mark Krause of McLanahan as the newly appointed Chairman.

With a year of dedicated service as Chair, Charlie Johnson gracefully handed over the reins of the NSSGA M&S Division to Mark Krause, who succeeds him as Chairman. Krause, a seasoned professional with over 40 years of experience in the aggregate industry, has spent the last decade contributing to the success of McLanahan. “Mark couldn’t be a better choice for Chair.  His passion for the industry is like no other,” stated Johnson. “I am honored to have served and will continue to support the committee”.

Expressing his gratitude and readiness for the new role, Krause remarked, “I am honored to be taking on this role and thankful to Charlie and the past M&S Chairs for their leadership.” He further added, “I look forward to working with NSSGA staff and M&S members to continue our service to the association and foster beneficial relationships across the industry.”

This transition marks another milestone for DSC Dredge (DSC) with Charlie being the second person from the company to be appointed Chair to the NSSGA M&S Division. In 2011, DSC’s now Senior VP and Chief Technology Officer, Bill Wetta, was appointed Chair.

“I am proud to see Mark Krause assume the Chairmanship role at NSSGA’s M&S Division. His dedication and passion for the industry mirror the values all our past Chairs have held. I am confident that under Mark’s leadership, the division will continue to thrive, furthering our collective goals within the aggregate industry,” stated Bill Wetta, Senior VP and Chief Technology Officer, DSC Dredge.

Alongside Mark Krause’s appointment as Chairman, Tom Suess of Komatsu has been named Vice-Chair of the M&S Division, further reinforcing the division’s leadership team.
