Construction Executive Magazine Celebrates 15th Anniversary With New Website and Digital Newsletter

WASHINGTON, Jan. 29—Construction Executive magazine, published by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year with the launch of its new and improved website,, and a new digital newsletter, CE This Week. Readers can now access a variety of articles posted daily that pertain to all facets of the construction industry: safety, insurance, technology, surety bonding, regulatory, craft training, leadership, fleet management, business development, economic trends and more.

“We have served as the magazine for the business of construction for 15 years, and it’s exciting to be able to deliver our award-winning print and digital content to readers via a responsive website that lets them share, save and search for the articles that are most valuable to them,” said Lauren Pinch, Construction Executive’s editor-in-chief. “The construction industry is changing at a faster pace than ever before, and we’re committed to keeping readers on top of the issues that will impact their businesses’
profitability and productivity.”

To that end, Construction Executive’s new CE This Week newsletter lets readers customize the digital content they want to receive directly in their inbox every Friday. Subscribers can choose the topics that interest them the most—business, technology, market trends, legal/regulatory, safety/risk, workforce development and equipment/fleet—and they can update their preferences at any time.

“What better way to close out your week than taking five to 10 minutes to read up on the topics that are top of mind, such as tax planning, growth opportunities, solutions to the talent shortage and keeping up with new technology,” said ABC President and CEO Michael D. Bellaman. “Construction Executive is an invaluable resource that ABC is proud to share with the entire construction industry.”
