Graham Brent announces retirement

By Hannah Sundermeyer04 February 2022

Graham Brent, chief executive officer of the NCCCO Foundation, will retire July 29, 2022, bringing to a close a 26-year career with the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators.

Graham Brent, CEO of the NCCCO Foundation, will retire in July after 26 years’ service to NCCCO.

Brent has led the NCCCO Foundation since 2019 when he stepped down after 23 years as CEO of the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators. In that time, the Foundation has achieved industry-wide recognition for its ground-breaking studies on crane operator evaluation and virtual reality; its authoritative accreditation and operator certification reference directories; and its advocacy for the crane and rigging industries in outreach to youth and veterans.

“The last 26 years have been extraordinary in so many ways,” said Brent. “I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have served NCCCO during that time, the last three years as CEO of the NCCCO Foundation. I look forward to working with the NCCCO and Foundation Boards and staff to achieve a smooth and seamless transition to new leadership.”

A search for Brent’s successor has been initiated by the non-profit organization. 

“While we are sorry to see Brent go,” said J. Chris Ryan, president, NCCCO Foundation. “We are very proud of the sound footing he has established for the Foundation. We are confident that the organization is poised to capitalize on the progress made to date and that it will continue to impact the industry with its safety-driven mission.”
