‘As part of this continuous board refreshment process, we are pleased to add a leader of Dorothy’s calibre, and believe her financial acumen and wide-ranging C-suite management experience make her uniquely qualified.
‘Dorothy is a well-known and highly regarded business person in Texas, which is a key market for Martin Marietta. We look forward to leveraging her deep knowledge of the State’s business and political environment, as well as the energy industry more broadly.’
