During the transitional years of Blair Concrete changing over to Donley’s Concrete Group…Eric put in the time, energy, and effort to build relationships with clients and managed multiple concrete projects.
In 2015 Eric was promoted to Project Executive. Over the next several years, we solidified our South Carolina Team, performed several very successful projects in Georgia, and successfully expanded into the Virginia market. Eric played a very key role throughout this growth and development phase of Donley’s Concrete Group.

Eric has an exceptional focus on keeping everyone safe, doing high-quality work in the field while at the same time managing the productivity of our workforce.
