Women in Business: Nancy Weibel

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Western Reserve Building Trades is proud to salute Nancy Weibel as our pick for The Business Journal’s “Women in Business” celebration. Nancy is the Business Agent for Roofers Local 71 in Youngstown as well as an Executive Board member and a delegate to the Western Reserve Building Trades.

She is the first woman to become Business Agent of the Youngstown Roofer’s Local, first female Business Agent in WRBT and the first woman to be an Executive Board member of Western Reserve Building Trades, which is worth celebrating.

We are proud of the tireless work and dedication that Nancy Weibel displays working for her members and alongside the other trade agents. We are especially proud of her trailblazing accomplishment as a lady in a construction environment that was traditionally represented by men.

After serving from 1986 to 2016 as Business Manager for Local 71, Nancy was appointed and subsequently elected to her current position five years ago. She is the third member of her family to hold the Business Agent position. Her father, Sal Ponzio, did the job 38 years; her brother, Carlos Ponzio, 25 years. With her five years of service, that adds up to 68 years of service to Roofers Local 71 by her family.
