Castle Contracting has promoted Jeremy Wood to the position of Project Director for Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing (MEP) and Utility projects in St. Louis.
Since joining Castle in 2019, he has overseen a wide range of MEP Civil and Utility projects—from emergency repairs to a complex campus infrastructure upgrade at Saint Louis University.
“Jeremy has demonstrated a passion for utility work, customer service and creative problem-solving,” said Castle Senior Vice President Michael Pranger. “His excellent leadership skills will serve him well as market leader.”
Wood is taking on the role formerly held by Castle Project Director Kurt Dulle, who will be relocating to Omaha to join the company’s quickly expanding office there.
