ALEXANDRIA, VA—Dallas native Letitia "Tish" Haley Barker, president of Haley-Greer Inc., has been elected president of the American Subcontractors Association for 2015-16.

Dallas-based Haley-Greer is one of the largest curtain wall contractors in the United States, and Barker said her term would be dedicated to the theme "Build it Bigger" as the organization seeks to expand its membership.

Barker, who has been ASA's vice president, was chosen at ASA's annual convention, SUBExcel 2015, in March in Seattle. She said she was "honored and humbled" by her election.

She will follow Brian Johnson, president of Soil Consultants Inc., Charleston, SC, in the position.

“It is always an honor to lead and sometimes a scary proposition," said Barker.

"You always have huge shoes to fill and this year is no different for me. Brian Johnson and the other past presidents before him have left a legacy of passion, sincerity, as well as success, and now I hope to continue down that same path.”

Barker has held a variety of chapter, regional and national positions with ASA, the voice of the U.S. trade contractor community founded in 1966.


Barker said her theme for 2015-16 would be "Build it Bigger" as ASA works to grow its membership.
