Barclay Gebel, FTCA

Vice President of Tilt-Up and Precast Services

Concrete Strategies, Inc.

Growing up around construction, Barclay worked on his first tilt-up project at 16 years old while still attending high school. His father worked as a superintendent for Clayco, one of, if not the first, tilt-up construction firms in the region. Gebel quickly made a name for himself in the industry and was named Vice President of Operations for Clayco TiltUp in 1998. The Clayco TiltUp brand continued to grow through the 1990s and was re-branded as Concrete Strategies in 2005. Today, Concrete Strategies employs over 550 field personnel and completes over $200 million in revenue annually from its headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri and a newly opened office in Kansas City, Kansas. Despite his continuous insistence that he is just a dumb carpenter, he is a recognized authority on tilt-up construction and has generously shared his tilt-up tips and tricks as a regular speaker at the TCA Tilt-Up Convention and has coauthored many articles for Tilt-Up Today. Gebel is a past member of the Board of Directors for the TCA, a past chair of the TCA Safety Committee and the inaugural recipient of the Tilt-Up Contractor of the Year Award.
