Starting as a plumber, Deron has worked his way up through the ranks and is now one of our most seasoned veterans. He has successfully run many projects for CINFAB, including various medical centers and a large project for General Electric. His most recent successful job was the Cincinnati Union Terminal Renovation project.

He was the perfect Foreman for the job, and he ran it flawlessly.
Deron has taken many various training programs over his years with CINFAB, including numerous Supervisory Training Programs (S.T.P.).
