Meet the Keith D. Smith Concrete Team
Keith D. Smith
Keith Smith is a York County native who was raised on a large farm in Glenville, PA. He graduated from South Western High School in 1980 and immediately joined the concrete construction industry, working for his brother’s concrete construction company. Keith started as a laborer and worked on a variety of concrete construction projects from pouring flat floors, excavating foundations, casting poured concrete walls and columns all the way to foundation installation. He worked hard and honed his skills in the field, learning how to use equipment, finish concrete, manage people, and create quality work while maintaining a profit.
At his former employer, Keith was promoted to foreman, then moved into the office as an estimator and eventually became Vice President. This provided valuable experience in additional facets of the concrete construction trade, and enabled him to hone his skills as a concrete craftsman and corporate manager. In 1994, he decided he wanted his own company. Keith and his wife Ellen started Keith D. Smith Concrete Contractor, Incorporated. His current daily duties include scheduling of employees, equipment, jobs, overseeing estimating, and job procurement.
Ellen M. Smith
Ellen was born and raised in Littlestown, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Littlestown High School in 1980, and not long after married Keith and had their first child, Benjamin. She worked at the Littonian Shoe Company for seven years until the birth of their second child, Abigail. She then worked as a housewife and opened a daycare. When she and Keith launched the business, she quit her daycare services and began working as a secretary for the business. Her job duties include general secretarial work, appointment scheduling, human resources organization and communication, and financial work.
Ryan J. Wilson
Ryan was born, raised, and currently resides in Hanover, Pennsylvania. He is a 2006 graduate of Shippensburg University and was an employee of Keith D. Smith Concrete during and after high school. Upon completing college, Ryan decided he did not want to enter the IT field, so he came on board as a full-time office employee. Ryan works closely with Keith running the estimating department and helps build corporate relations. He has grown with the company in the last eight years, and his current job duties include estimating projects, project management, technology help, and office management.
