Marcel’s interest in the construction industry began his sophomore year at Shaker Heights High School while taking architecture classes. Marcel often helped labor for his uncle’s home improvement company. As a state finalist and All American wrestler, he landed at Kent State University to wrestle and pursue a degree in construction management. Marcel met Metis at a Rebuilding Together project and began working with them as an assistant superintendent. Marcel now serves as Chief Estimator and Safety Officer for Metis.
