WATSONVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Granite (NYSE:GVA) announced today that District Vice President Ian Firth has been appointed to the National Asphalt Pavement Association’s (NAPA) Advisory Council West Region as an at large member.

The Advisory Council is charged with enhancing advocacy for the asphalt industry and supporting the active engagement of all the member companies. The regional structure of the council ensures representation from every region of the United States and members support NAPA’s Board of Directors by acting as conduits from individual states and regions to the national association.
