Hello and welcome to Asphaltchick.com
The "Asphaltchick" is Connie Lorenz
Who is Connie?
In 1999, Ms. Lorenz was hired as the Office Manager for
Asphalt Restoration Technology of Florida.
Her duties entailed overseeing all accounts payable, accounts receivable, collections, purchasing, payroll, banking, customer service and general office duties. After a short time in this position, Ms. Lorenz noticed a lack of leadership and direction in the company and began a marketing campaign geared towards the hospitality market in order to increase revenues.
In 2000, Ms. Lorenz was promoted to Supervisor of Operations and at this time began a total transformation of the company. She utilized her quality control skills to identify and correct weaknesses in the operating procedures in the field as well as the administration office. She was instrumental in generating increased revenues while establishing her as a leader in the asphalt maintenance industry among vendors and competitors.
Her attention to detail as well as customer
satisfaction took the company above and beyond the previous standards of
other asphalt maintenance organizations in the market. It
was during this time that she began to address the specific needs of a
customer’s property instead of providing a generic solution, as provided by
asphalt maintenance companies in her industry. One of her strategies was to
educate the consumer in regards to proper asphalt maintenance.
She did this through education by teaching classes as well as
authoring a number of magazines articles. Initially
offering one class, she now teaches statewide and has previously taught a
class at the National Pavement Expo in Nashville. Ms.
Lorenz also began by submitting articles to some local trade magazines which
generated an interest in an area that little information was available.
Now a regular contributor to both local and national publications, Connie is considered one of the foremost experts in her field.
In 2004, Connie was asked to step up to the
role of President of the company.
She also captured the attention of the Manufacturer of the number one pavement rejuvenation products,
PDC - Pavement Dressing Conditioner Asphalt Rejuvenator
and was invited to sit on the Board of Directors of the PDC Group of Distributors. Through field studies, experience, courses and seminars available through some of the best educators, Connie has become one of the most sought out asphalt maintenance professionals in the industry and is known for raising the bar on the competition through offering specifically detailed and informational evaluations.
During the this journey, Connie has gained the respect
and trust of many Facility Managers, Property Managers, Business Owners as
well as Board Members and community residents.
In doing so, many have asked her opinion about their specific course of action or process when their specific property required a service that was beyond the scope of services that AR Tech typically provided.
So in 2015 Connie decided it was time to spread the knowledge with Asphaltchick.com Consultation Services.
Be it a detailed property evaluation, production of specification standards for bid documents, procurement of proposal, proposal comparison and "apples to apples" comparison all the way to full onsite Project Management Services with progress posting websites, the Asphaltchick has got your Asphalt covered.
