Our industry provides infrastructure that supports a thriving economy - through safe and durable materials supporting the integrity of Oklahoma, and contributing thousands of jobs to Oklahoma’s growing job market.

Executive Director of OKAA

Devery Youngblood became the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Aggregates Association (OKAA) in January 2019. He is the primary promoter and defender of the industry that produces the rock, sand, and gravel that is the source of the roads we drive on, the walls of our office, the windshield in our car, and the foundation of our house among many other essentials.

Oklahoma’s Aggregates Industry

Devery brings expertise to OKAA in economic growth, infrastructure development, and politics from career positions with The Chickasaw Nation, the U.S. House of Representatives, and as a pioneer in Oklahoma City’s MAPS program. Devery has worked in or with local, state, federal, and tribal governments as well being a mainstay in the Oklahoma business community for over 20 years.
