MAIN OFFICE – SAGINAW

Russell A. Willett – Owner/President
While growing up, my father allowed my brother and I to get involved in the concrete business. That experience developed into a lifetime of devotion for R&R Ready Mix, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I enjoy boating and hunting. Spending time with my family and friends is always a pleasure.

Harry Sauve – Sales
I enjoy the concrete industry; I’ve been in it all my life. While in the Navy, I drove a ready mix truck during my stay in Diego Garcia which is in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Away from work, my wife and I enjoy golfing together and spending time with our grandchildren.  I also enjoy deer hunting and an occasional trip to the casino.

Paul Gakstatter – Sales
I have been with the company for 35 years; it’s a place that makes you feel like family. I enjoy working with my co-workers and all the customers. I always look forward to meeting new customers.

Carrie Garpiel – Accounts Payable
I enjoy working at R&R because I have the control and freedom within my job, I am able to have some flexibility which allows me to be there for my kids for important events. I live in Saginaw with my husband, Matt and three children, Lily, Madilyn, and Nash.  Our kids keep us busy with all their activities, but I enjoy watching them in all they do.  Fun fact, I grew up in Zilwaukee and never knew R&R was right down the road from where I lived until I started working here.

Mary Beth Taglauer – Controller
My job entails many different facets, which makes it interesting on a daily basis.  In addition, the atmosphere at our company is one of camaraderie and pride in what we all do.  Everyone plays an integral part in what makes everything work. Outside of work I enjoy cooking, decorating, crafts and reading..  I also enjoy giving back, through volunteerism, to my community as it has provided me with a great place in which to live and work.

Lynn Smith – Accounts Receivable
I enjoy working for R&R because it’s great to work with amazing customers and supportive fellow employees. In addition, it’s been a pleasure working for the Willett family for the last 33 years; more years to come! In my spare time I enjoy my life with the 3 F’s, Faith, Family and Friends. My friends include my fur ball Welsh Corgi named Gilly.

Taylor Beswick – Quality Control
I enjoy working at R & R Ready Mix because everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated to the cause creating a family like environment. With this shared atmosphere, we are able to emphasize on our collective knowledge and help the customer more effectively than any other company I have been with. I enjoy hunting and camping and spending time with my two beautiful daughters and wife. I also enjoy spending time at my cabin up north.

PLANT MANAGEMENT

Jerryl Brown – Clio Plant Manager
Being in Clio has been a gratifying experience. I drove truck for several years before landing my feet in Clio; I really enjoy the people I work with and the customers as well. My wife and I keep busy with our family and friends. We also find time to work out at the local gym.

Glen Newcomb – Hemlock Plant Manager

Jeff Freel – Bay City Plant Manager
There is never a dull moment at R&R and I enjoy that. We are always striving to do better and take on specialty projects. The company keeps me on my toes to make sure I’m sending out the best possible product.  This practice makes work enjoyable to and makes me feel needed. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love to hunt and fish and I hope when my kids get older, they will enjoy it as much as I do.

Brad Gray – Central Dispatch

Tim Maguire – Central Dispatch
From driving to batching and plant maintenance, I’ve been with R&R since 1996. It’s been a joy learning all the facets of the company. I enjoy my family and trips up to the U.P. especially during hunting season. Michigan State is a favorite team of mine. Go Green, Go White!

Loren VanSumeren – Central Dispatch
I’ve been with the company for many years starting as a driver and now in dispatch. My favorite days are when things go smooth; a dispatcher’s goal every day. I enjoy riding my motorcycle on warm summer days.

Herb Nordstrom – Central Dispatch
In 2013 I began working for R&R in the dispatch office. It’s always a pleasure helping customers on the phone. Through the years I’ve taken a lot of phone calls. It would be fun to meet everyone I talk to! I enjoy traveling with my wife and living in Bay City. Football is my game. Go Blue! And of course, I’m a Lions fan, which can be tough on a guy.

R. Barry Mohr – Standish Plant Manager
I love dealing with people. It really makes my day when customers call back to say “Thank you and my job turned out great.” When there is down time,  I love playing a round of golf and spending time with my family.

Scott Wissner – Sebewaing Plant Manager
I enjoy having the support from an entire team of experts in the R and R Family.  All I can say is WOW – this is nice. In my free time, I love heading North to the family cabin for the weekend in West Branch and making stops in Standish to make deliveries to Barry at Arquette.  Family just got bigger with R and R.

Jennifer Wissner – Sebewaing Office Staff
I love my new career – after 35 years in Banking – I retired to learn new things, meet new people, get fresh air, and get exercise – and work with the entire RR team of players! I love spending time with my family and the 3 H’s (our Grandchildren Heidi, Hazel, and Hutch).  I also enjoy cooking and the boys from Sebewaing will tell you I love to eat – they benefit because cooking daily for Scotts Father, my father in law, the rule is a different desert every night!

My career started with R&R Ready Mix in 2012 as a driver. Prior to this, I farmed right out of high school with my father in Kawkawlin. I look forward to helping the team and customers in my new position in Hemlock. When away from work, I enjoy being with my wife and kids; we especially have fun camping together. Besides camping, I love being out on the “hard water” ice fishing.
