Maltese Elected President of Great Detroit AGC

Southfield – Dominic J. Maltese, Jr., president of D.J. Maltese Construction Services, Dearborn, was elected president of the Associated General Contractors of America, Greater Detroit Chapter, Inc. at the organization’s annual meeting Jan. 13.

“I am very proud of this honor, and I hope to contribute to the legacy of excellence that has defined the AGCGD and its work throughout Detroit and the metropolitan community for nearly a century” Maltese said. The Greater Detroit AGC was founded in 1916 as the General Builders Association of Detroit. Its name change reflects the association’s commitment to the greater Detroit metropolitan area.

Maltese represents the sixth generation of builders in his family. His own Dearborn-based company, which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, was founded as a cement construction company by Maltese’s father, Dominic Sr. The new Detroit AGC president vowed to continue the chapter’s mission.

“Ours is an organization that stands at the heart of our community, and we are committed to making that community as healthy and prosperous as it can be,” Maltese said.

“Mr. Maltese brings a distinctive knowledge of the construction industry with a long history of achievement that makes him an ideal leader for our organization,” Detroit AGC Executive Vice President John Maas said.
