Meet Demetric Wright, Project Supervisor

August 10, 2017

He might be a man of few words, but his coworkers and customers have a lot of great things to say about Project Supervisor Demetric Wright’s work. “Demetric does not shy away from a challenge and is open to change.  He has been very helpful in piloting technology improvements we have made in the field,” says Jon Reiss, Vice President and Construction Manager, D. C. Taylor Co., Cedar Rapids, IA. “When I want to try out new equipment or materials, I look to him to give his honest opinion and he has no problem doing so.” Demetric works for the Cedar Rapids Construction 2 field office and has been a project supervisor for three years.
