The U.S. Concrete board has formed a search committee to replace President and CEO Michael W. Harlan, who will retain the titles he has held for four years as directors seek a successor. A founding U.S. Concrete director and chief financial officer from May 1999–November 2004, he served as executive vice president and chief operating officer prior to taking the helm in May 2007.

“The men and women of this company are dedicated to providing outstanding service to its customers and creating value for its shareholders,” says Harlan. “After having successfully completed the restructuring of U.S. Concrete’s balance sheet in August 2010, I am confident the company is well positioned for the next stage of its growth.”

Commending Harlan for his leadership through extremely challenging economic times, U.S. Concrete Chairman Gene Davis affirmed, “Michael not only succeeded in completion of the restructuring, but also in keeping the entire organization focused on its customers and operations during this period.”
