IBC Traffic Inc.’s McCombs Becomes Chair of AGC Kansas City Chapter

Brandy McCombs, President at IBC Traffic Inc., is featured on the cover of Modern Builder magazine as the first woman to Chair the board of The Builders, which is the Kansas City chapter of the AGC. As McCombs begins her year as Board of Directors Chair for The Builders, the industry celebrates the milestone — she is the first woman in the association’s 136-year history to hold the position. She acknowledged that being a woman in an industry still run mostly by men has come with challenges.


McCombs and IBC are active members of NUCA KC and participated in organizing Dozer Days as well as being a Diamond Sponsor. “I want to volunteer more,” McCombs says. “I love giving back — it’s how I find joy. It motivates me to see that I’m making a difference. To me, that’s what it’s about – helping others, seeing something grow.

McCombs will serve as chair, alongside Vice Chair Angie McElhaney, Mark One Electric Company, Inc.; Assistant Chair Andy Heitmann, Turner Construction Company; and Immediate Past Chair Rob Cleavinger, JE Dunn Construction Company.
