Demetrio Rael

Southern California Coordinator
Demetrio Rael picture

I started my career in construction in 1995, working for one of the largest concrete finishing companies in Southern California. Through hard work and dedication, I moved up the ranks within the company to become a concrete foreman and eventually overseeing three concrete pouring crews.

In 2014, I join the Laborers Training School as a marketing representative for the LCM program with inspirations to one day becoming a regional coordinator. With the same hard work and dedication, in 2019 I was awarded the position of Southern California Cement Mason coordinator. As we continue to gain ground and momentum in the construction industry, in November 2021 the Brick tender apprenticeship program was introduce as accredited craft. And I was given the additional opportunity and responsibility to help grow and expand this trade.
