An Interview with Jordan Berens

Jordan Berens is the Director of Project Management for Division 110, our commercial concrete division in the Midwest. In this RED Code interview, he shares how important it is to blend field and business expertise – and to collaborate with the teammates around you.

Congratulations to Jordan as the first national recipient of the ASCC Gaining Strength Award. The award was presented on September 19, 2019 at the annual ASCC convention in Chicago, Illinois. The Gaining Strength Award was established this year to acknowledge concrete industry professionals aged 40 and under who set them selves apart from their colleagues through day-to-day performance and through participation in local and national industry organizations.
