Natural-born leader

Bruce McCrory is ready for his new role as NRCA president

The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly," says author Jim Rohn.

When talking to Bruce McCrory, secretary-treasurer, co-owner, chief operating officer and general manager of Kiker Corp., Mobile, Ala., and others about his upcoming NRCA presidency, it is clear this quote could have been written with him in mind.

"He's good at getting people to do things; he's motivating," says Tonya Primeaux, Kiker's office manager.

Being a leader is nothing new to McCrory. Having previously served as president of the National Roofing Legal Resource Center (NRLRC), president of the Alabama Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association, president of the Better Business Bureau of South Alabama, and president of the University of South Alabama National Alumni Association, among holding other offices, McCrory is well-positioned for his NRCA presidency.
