Amy Blaida serves as the director of business development for Whitaker Contracting Corporation, a 60-year-old, family-owned asphalt and preservation company that operates throughout multiple states in the Southeast. In this position, Blaida serves as an advocate to promote the public works industry. Blaida currently serves as the president-elect for the Florida Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA), the Chairperson for the National APWA Quality Council Committee, as well as serving on the board of the Florida
Association of County Engineers and Road Superintendents as the sustaining member director.

Blaida’s passion for public works comes from her father, who served as a public works director for years, inspiring her to start a career in the public works industry in 2008. Public works is what keeps the fabric of our society functioning daily in many ways that generally go unnoticed and underappreciated. This is why Blaida has chosen a career to promote and advocate for the public works industry, to serve as that essential voice and advocate.

What Blaida loves about her job is the opportunity to travel around the state of Florida to help her colleagues in public works solve their pavement preservation and construction needs. Blaida believes there is a purpose and a place for each of us to work together and be true partners in this amazing world of public works.
