A local concrete contractor promoted five of its staff to division management positions.

Cutlerville-based Kent Companies said Monday, Jan. 3., it promoted Jordan Berens, Steve McCoy, Zach VanBemden, Ed Hardesty and Jeff Moomey all to the position of division manager.

“Each of our incoming division managers demonstrates leadership and innovation as they carve a path forward for our team,” said CEO Jeff VanderLaan. “Our people are our purpose, and I’m confident in our leaders’ ability to create growth and opportunity for our entire team in the new year.”

Berens oversees concrete site operations in Michigan and other Midwest locations. He joined the company nearly eight years ago as an intern and later took on different titles, including project engineer, estimator, project manager, senior project manager and director of project management.

VanBemden is the division manager for the West Michigan underlayment group. He began his career at Kent Companies as a project manager in 2015.

Hardesty now is responsible for operations, business development and product delivery of the company’s underlayment group in eastern Michigan. He previously was project manager for more than 20 years at Kent Companies.

“Berens, Hardesty and VanBemden started in the field and worked their way up to leadership roles, truly exemplifying what it means to build a lifelong career at Kent Companies,” VanderLaan said.

Moomey is the company’s division manager of facilities services. He has been a project manager at Kent Companies for five years and has 33 years of commercial construction experience in West Michigan.

McCoy is the division manager for the commercial concrete group in Grand Rapids. He has been working with Kent Companies for four years and previously was director of field operations and senior project manager before taking on his new role.

Kent Companies is a third-generation family-owned business with expertise in commercial and industrial construction, mixed-use construction, multi-family housing, tilt-up concrete, post-tensioned cast-in-place structures and other concrete-related specialties.

The company is headquartered in Cutlerville and has operations in Detroit and Traverse City; Dallas and Austin, Texas; central Ohio; Charlotte, North Carolina; and St. Louis, Missouri.
