Ronnie Pruitt has been named president of ready mixed and aggregate producer U.S. Concrete, maintaining his chief operating officer title but taking over many corporate functions that support the company’s operational business units. He arrived in 2015 as COO and senior vice president after tours of duty in Martin Marietta Materials and Texas Industries management.

“Ronnie has been instrumental in the strategic growth of our company including very successfully integrating Polaris Materials, a major aggregates acquisition. His leadership and record of success with our ready-mixed concrete and aggregates operations has earned him this expanded role,” says U.S. Concrete Chairman and CEO William Sandbrook, who has held the title of president since 2011. “[He] is a champion for the health and safety of our employees, is dedicated to our environmental and sustainability initiatives and is laser focused on creating enhanced shareholder value through operational excellence.”
