Meet the Team: Aaron Howell, Project Executive

At Ceco Concrete, our low employee turnover rate allows us to train and develop our people into highly experienced managers and future company leaders. Our team members’ longevity and depth of expertise allow us to provide clients, owners and end users with the desired project outcomes. On average, Ceco’s current non-trade employees have been with our company for more than 15 years.

Aaron Howell, for instance, has been building his knowledge and skills with Ceco Cincinnati for the past 16 years. Starting out as a Construction Engineer in 2005, he has since progressed through various project management and estimating roles before managing some of the district’s largest and most challenging projects as Senior Project Manager/Lead Estimator.

Aaron was recently promoted to Project Executive. He will be responsible for leading all sales, estimating and project management efforts as the Cincinnati office transitions from purely formwork services to offering our customers complete concrete frame construction services when those services are desired.
