The National Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) has recognized a member of the CEMEX family as one of the top ready-mix concrete delivery drivers in the country. David Mangold, a 22-year veteran driver out of Cocoa, Fla., who’s been with CEMEX for 33 years, was one of two runners-up in the 2016 competition.

A panel of industry judges selected the winners from a pool of national applicants. The winners were chosen for their outstanding career achievements, safety records, professionalism, driving competency and customer-service skills.

Mangold has averaged 10,000 cubic yards delivered over the past three years and is a favorite among CEMEX’s customers.

“Dave exemplifies our number one core value—safety—not only with his tremendous safety record but also in assisting others with safety issues. Additionally, Dave is very customer-focused and has built some wonderful relationships with our customers over the years. Congratulations Dave, we are very proud of you.” said Doug Augeri, CEMEX, Vice President & General Manager, Palm Beach & Treasure Coast.

"David Mangold is a great driver, but an even better person,” said customer Kellie Bardo, of JR Pumping Inc.

Mangold, who has represented CEMEX USA at the NRMCA competition the past two years, also serves as a trainer for the company—a task he doesn’t take lightly. He enjoys teaching new hires and always stresses the importance of safety and enjoying what you do every day.

“Safety and efficiency are the keys to my success. When customers see that I’m their driver, they know I’m there to get the job done without wasting any time—that’s something I’m very proud of,” Mangold said. “I love being a driver for CEMEX. There’s nothing I’d rather do.”

As a runner-up, Mangold will receive a $1,000 check from the NRMCA and will be honored at an awards breakfast on April 12, during the organization’s annual convention in San Diego.
