“Dominic’s strong business acumen and commitment to accountability are complemented by a unique combination of ICC knowledge and experience, and a sincere affinity for our members,” said Ronald Piester, president of the ICC board of directors. “This is an historic moment for the Code Council. I call on our members, partners and staff to join the board in support of Dominic as we begin ICC’s second decade. The future is bright, and our success will be ensured by moving forward together.”

Sims responded, “Code Council Members represent the highest standard of building safety and fire prevention professionals, and ICC serves as a powerful tool to help them help their communities, clients, and their careers.
“This is a pivotal time at ICC, in our industry and for many standards development organizations,” Sims continued. “There is no doubt that our Members have faced significant change brought on by recent financial stress, but as economic conditions continue to improve the Code Council is in a unique position to take advantage of emerging opportunities on behalf of our Members.”

Sims will lead the ICC and its management team in Birmingham, Ala., Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.
