General Superintendent Onboard

In August 2017, Paul Stewart was hired as our General Superintendent.  Paul comes to us with more than 30 years construction experience. 

Paul has worked with some of the largest concrete contractors in DFW and has a real “we do things the right way” attitude.  Paul is respected as a true leader and team player.  You won’t find a more down to earth, relationship guy.  The Ashley Concrete team is beyond excited to have Paul on our team.  

WBE Certification Granted

After six weeks of gathering paperwork and completing forms, we submitted our documents to receive a Women Owned Business Certification from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.  In June 2017, Ashley Concrete was awarded certification as a Woman Owned Business (WBENC) and a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB).  

In July 2017, we also became a  Small Business Enterprise and State of Texas Historically Underutilized Business HubZone.  Together with our team and partners we are hoping to use these certifications to work with thousands of major U.S. corporations and federal, state and local government entities.

Commercial Concrete Estimator On Board

In May 2017, Ashley Concrete hired Chasstan Prichard to be lead estimator and project manager.  He has more than fifteen combined years of concrete experience.  

Chas relocated from the New Orleans, Louisiana area.  He is a technical genius who brings a wealth of knowledge, expertise and commitment to accuracy to our company.   It is the people that make our company great!

New Ownership/President

In August of 2016, Ashley Altum purchased the assets of Compass Surfacing Solutions and founded a new entity, Ashley Concrete.  Ashley is passionate about forming the right team, people are the most important part, and leading something profitable and great.

With her finance and operations background, Ashley has grown the company 70% in the past year, added additional markets and team members, as well as a planned roll out of re-branding to the new Ashley Concrete.
