I've been writing about the construction industry since 2004, when I started my career at Cygnus Business Media covering the asphalt industry for Pavement Maintenance and Reconstruction. When I became lead editor for Concrete Contractor in 2006, I immersed myself in the concrete industry, becoming involved with concrete industry associations, visiting jobsites and talking with concrete contractors across the country.
It's been my privilege to serve on the American Society of Concrete Contractor's Annual Conference Committee and sit on judging panels for industry awards programs. I look forward to continuing the discussion in print and online. You can find me on Facebook.com/ConcreteContractor and on Twitter.com/concreteinsider.
The concrete industry is crawling back from recession. Many contractors have pushed their fleets, equipment, and tools past their usual life expectancy. Now more than ever, they are seeking information to make purchase decisions that will pay off on their next jobs.
To survive and even prosper in this market, many contractors are expanding their service menu. With our peer-to-peer editorial focus, Concrete Contractor shows the way to success through profiles of successful contractors. Concrete polishing is a prime example and the reason Concrete Contractor introduced Polishing Contractor as a quarterly supplement last year.
