The ACS: Concrete | Construction Team is here to ensure your projects go smoother than freshly polished concrete.
Mike was raised in and around the construction industry and has worked with concrete all his life. He started out his career as a Concrete Placement Product Supervisor with Beta Development. In 2005, Mike and his father, Don, founded Artistic Concrete Surfaces, LLC. Together, with their near 50 years of concrete construction experience, they have formed a very diverse and cutting-edge construction company.
- Mike is acting President for the Concrete Promotional Group of Kansas City.
- He is also Chairman of the Decorative Concrete Board, for which he helped create a Specifier’s Guide for both decorative concrete and polished concrete placement.
- Mike is certified as a Master Concrete Finisher (and has been awarded) by the American Concrete Institute.
- He is certified as a Master Craftsmen Concrete Polisher by the Concrete Polishing Association of America.
Mike also has a background in building and hard-scape design, which he has used to design and engineer some of our company’s award-winning projects. When Mike is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Lindsey, their sons, Wyatt & Waylon, and going hunting, boating, and spending every possible second on the motocross track. Mike Denny is on Facebook, and LinkedIn.
Depth and breadth of experience in the field of construction over a lifetime career are key elements that Don brings to the partnership with son, Mike, at ACS. Don’s background as a builder, remodeler, and general contractor benefits the team both conceptually and practically as projects are planned, designed, and executed.
Mike and Don share a unique capability to find balance among the more important parts of life:
- a strong work ethic
- creative ingenuity
- having fun
These qualities, along with their extensive expertise in specialized concrete applications and construction, make ACS a responsive, dependable, and dynamic resource for residential and commercial clients alike.
Don and wife, Sue, have three sons (all of whom are married to wonderful women), as well as three grandchildren. Together, they enjoy spending time with family, boating, and traveling.
Having joined our team in the spring of 2013 after graduating from Kansas State University with her Masters Degree in Interior Architecture and Product Design, Beth’s application of her knowledge and natural talent for design brings our projects to life.
She boasts that she is proud to collaborate with such a knowledgeable team, and feels at home with our hands-on approach.
Beth has lived in Kansas all her life, apart from a semester abroad in Italy. In her free time, she can be found in her growing woodworking shop or winning a rousing game of Pictionary.
Born and raised in Garden City, Kansas on a family farming & cattle operation, Ryan later attended Kansas State University, where he majored in Business Management. Having joined our team after a decade in the construction industry, his attention to detail ensures superior customer service and top-notch quality assurance.
Ryan & his wife, Kristin, are proud parents of future purple PowerCat, Kamryn, their 3-year-old daughter. In his free time, Ryan spends most his time doting on his lovely ladies. However, he is also an avid hunter, with a strong passion for motocross. You can also find him on Facebook or LinkedIn.
Jesse came to our company as a file clerk in June 2012 while she was going back to school. Having spent the previous 11 years helping a local boutique grow into a nationwide franchise company, she has handled a wide range of aspects unique to growing a small business. From face-to-face sales to advertising, wholesale ordering to event coordination, Jesse’s greatest strengths are in her developed business management experience — and her thirst for knowledge.
When she’s not spending her evenings balancing the books, she can typically be found somewhere remote camping, reading, writing, and spoiling her dog, Rigel, with her son, Sirius.
Bret studied Construction Sciences at Kansas State University. He joined our team in August of 2011 as a foreman, but his attention to detail & unparalleled resourcefulness quickly earned him the role of Production Manager.
Not only is he a licensed Concrete Finisher from the American Concrete Institute, his father also owns a structural construction company. Having grown up in this industry, Bret’s knowledge and exposure have been invaluable.
Both an avid hunter & fisher, Bret was also an All-Star wrestler growing up. He enjoys running marathons with his family, and also has a background as an equestrian.
As a member of the ACS team, Julie is happy to provide office support and exceptional customer service. A graduate of Kansas State University, she has worked in advertising, news media, and product merchandising — but her favorite job by far has been that of “mom” to her three kids. In her free time, she can be found therapeutically mowing the lawn, working on her farm, and making goat milk soap.
