OUR TEAM

Todd Maurer

Owner / President
todd@championgroup.ca

As the Owner and President of Champion Concrete Cutting (Calgary), Todd sums up the company in one sentence, “We just do what we do, and we do it well.” For Todd, Champion Concrete Cutting is about providing service excellence in concrete cutting, while always enhancing the company to best serve its clients.

After starting Champion Concrete in Edmonton in 1990 with a partner, he opened the branch in 1998 (note that the two companies are no longer associated, and are two separate entities).Having grown Champion Concrete for 25 years, Todd has proven time and again his passion for the business in the construction industry, steering the company through all markets, and always keeping the focus on providing quality service to clients, no matter the size, project, or challenge level. In fact, with bettering the service value of Champion Concrete, Todd started the Champion Group of Companies to house complementary service companies, such as, Terra Boyz Contracting, Expert Firestop Solutions and Global Garbage. With these complementary companies, Todd enhances the client experience by increasing service offerings through one phone call, rather than contacting multiple trades companies.

It is this commitment to enhancing the client experience that Todd has inspired throughout his business, creating a united vision focused on service.
