Construction Angels, a non-profit organization that provides immediate financial support and grief counseling to the children and spouse when a construction worker suffers a fatality on the jobsite, has elected Werk-Brau’s Neil Recker to their National Board. Recker will serve as the Ohio Representative of the national organization and participate in all Board meetings and activities. In addition to serving as a Regional Sales Manager for Werk-Brau, Recker recently organized the company’s first-ever Golf Outing to benefit Construction Angels. The event was a resounding success as it raised over $70,000 to aid families of fallen construction workers in Ohio.
“We’re thrilled to add Neil to the Board,” said Construction Angels CEO and Founder/National Executive Director Kristi Gibbs. “His drive and enthusiasm will benefit the Board, but more importantly the many Ohio families impacted by construction tragedies.”
Werk-Brau National Sales Manager Dale DeWese echoed that sentiment, saying “Congratulations to Neil Recker on his appointment to the board of directors for Construction Angels! This is a significant step towards aligning with Werk-Brau’s core values of building better lives. Neil’s dedication to the principle that ‘everybody matters’ and his commitment to ‘doing the right thing’ make him an ideal addition to this important role. His expertise and passion will undoubtedly contribute to the organization’s mission of making a positive impact on lives. Wishing Neil and Construction Angels a successful and impactful journey ahead!”
Although he is the Ohio Representative, Recker has aspirations beyond the Buckeye State, saying “I’m hopeful that we can harness existing relationships with our network of dealer partners around the country to expand the footprint of Construction Angels to all 50 states. I’m honored and humbled by this responsibility and look forward to contributing to such a worthwhile organization.”
