Spancrete Announces Retirement Of President & COO Alan Antoniewicz
Spancrete, an industry leader in engineered precast and prestressed building solutions and global equipment, has announced the retirement of Alan Antoniewicz, president and COO of Spancrete. Alan has led the business for the past 12 years in Wisconsin, Illinois and Florida and is set to retire on February 1, 2021.
Since the beginning of his tenure at Spancrete, Alan developed business strategies that focused on the core business of precast concrete and driving profitable growth for the company. Day-to-day, Alan led the team to establish positive customer relationships, develop innovative Spancrete products and equipment, and ensure high safety and quality standards companywide—returning Spancrete as a leader in both the construction and precast concrete industries following the 2008 recession.
“Al was crucial in helping to streamline our business while looking ahead to future changes in the industry and market,” says Scott Bertschinger, executive vice president, Spancrete. “He always had a knack for seeing the big picture and adjusting course accordingly.”
Alan leaves Spancrete with over 40 years of professional experience, with a broad background in multiple industries, including construction, mining, industrial and energy. Early in his career, he worked for Harnischfeger Corporation, now known as Komatsu Mining, and Manitowoc Crane Group as general manager. He also spent time with Dresser, now known as GE Power and Water/Innio, as president of global operations.
Scott Bertschinger, who is currently executive vice president of Spancrete, will take over Alan’s position to lead the day-to-day business operations of Spancrete.
In retirement Alan is looking forward to spending more time with family and continuing to serve the community with his various board positions, as well as other consulting and mentoring engagements.
