US Concrete has announced Ronnie Pruitt is to replace William J. Sandbrook as CEO from 3 April.

Sandbrook will continue to serve as chairman of the board until the company’s annual meeting of stockholders in May. He will provide consulting services pursuant to a one-year consulting agreement, which may be extended by mutual agreement.

Sandbrook says: “Ronnie is well prepared to lead the company into our next phase of growth through his many years of industry experience. I am committed to working with him and the company as a strategic advisor and board member to ensure a smooth transition and continuation of our enhanced vertical integration strategy. I want to thank the board of directors for their tremendous support, insight and encouragement over the past nine years. Together with a fantastic group of leaders and employees, we have dramatically transformed the Company in the eyes of our customers, industry peers, and the investor community at large. I am humbled to have been part of this journey.”

US Concrete’s lead director Michael D. Lundin, says: “Under his leadership, the company evolved from a predominantly ready-mixed focused company with limited geographic footprint to a much larger company with a focus on aggregates and vertically integrated ready-mixed operations with meaningful footprints in major metropolitan areas in the United States and a large aggregates quarry in Canada servicing our West Coast operations.”

Sandbrook joined US Concrete in August 2011 as president and CEO. He has served as a member of the board of directors since he joined the company and served as chairman since May 2018.
