Concrete Garb EP 10: Troy "OLLIE" Oliver

In this episode we bring you a concrete finisher with nearly two decades of experience.  A finisher in which I have had the pleasure of personally working with, during my first 7 years of my concrete career.  In my opinion, he is the total package poster child of what it takes to be a concrete construction professional.  He is a Project Lead for Lithko Contracting Inc.  He grew up in Crete Nebraska started his concrete career in Lincoln Nebraska, but has been in Missouri for the past 9 years...Until now.  

Ladies and Gentlemen, allow us to introduce Mr. Troy Oliver, aka "OLLIE".
