Joe Quick

Hello my name is Joe Quick, CEO of The Concrete Protector. I spent years building a business with little support, through trial and error, and having to learn the hard way. I worked with concrete companies who just wanted to sell me a package without any ongoing support. Their poor marketing forced me to develop my own marketing plan . . . a plan which built my decorative concrete company into a multi-million dollar business. The other companies sold me products that failed or were inferior, so I developed a line of products that gave my clients the looks they were seeking while building a reputation for their quality. Along the way, I developed technical support for my contractors so they wouldn’t have to go through the same difficult trial and error lessons that I had to go through. In 2014, I purchased a 13,000 square foot headquarters to train and support The Concrete Protector partners. This enabled us to have a state of the art lab where we can provide the most extensive hands on decorative concrete training in the industry for free. Why for free you ask? Because we know when you see the depth of our organization you will be sold. We aren’t trying to just sell products, training or equipment. We are looking to partner with entrepreneurs to make their dreams a reality. It happened for me, and we’d love to see it happen for you! We don’t succeed unless you succeed! Enroll Now!
