Anthony (Tony) Darkangelo

The National Finishing Contractors Association (FCA) board of Directors announced the appointment of Anthony (Tony) Darkangelo as CEO. Darkangelo succeeds Stuart Binstock, who is no longer with the association.

The National FCA is an international trade association representing union contractors engaged in painting, glass, glazing, drywall finishing, and floor covering.

National FCA Chairman Ed Smith said Darkangelo “is a hands-on guy, and his passion for our association and our industry is contagious. Tony leaves no doubt he believes in our core values, and he is determined to make National FCA the absolute best it can be for the benefit of all our contractor members.”

Smith expressed confidence that Darkangelo “will work effectively with National FCA contractors, local affiliates, and the IUPAT (International Union of Painters and Allied Trades) to strengthen the delivery of National FCA services.”

Darkangelo said, “With the commitment of our members, affiliates, and the IUPAT leadership, I look forward to exploring new ways to better serve our members and to advance the quality of those services.  We now have a key opportunity to advance the position of union contractors in the construction industry. The staff and I are committed to serving our members, with our ongoing focus to educate, advocate, and legislate for the finishing industry.”

Darkangelo joined National FCA in 2008 as regional vice president for the central region. The association said he has excelled in assisting members and building relationships with National FCA’s union partners around the country, and said his extensive work with association committees allowed for the newly formed Safety Advisory Committee to expedite the National FCA Safety Awards Program.

Smith said Darkangelo “brings a fresh new attitude to National FCA,” adding that “Tony has experience as a contractor, and there is no better way to truly understand the challenges we face in the real world. He has worked closely with architects and that experience will serve us well when working with our specialty contractors."
