Native Concrete & Masonry Inc. was founded by Charles Monette, the current owner and president. Charles was born into his craft, owing his knowledge and skill to his father, a retired mason who taught Charles early on. Charles made a name for himself when he entered the industry as a subcontractor. He earned the nickname “The Artist” for his dedication to precision and detail in each project he is a part of. Charles’ strength and moral foundation come from his wife and mother, who are by his side every step of the way.
Charles enjoys spending time with his six beautiful children, teaching them the best he knows how and witnessing their little miracles each and every day. His hobbies include reading, watching movies, bowling and home cooking. He is a member of the Minnesota American Indian Chamber of Commerce where he advocates for his community as well as American Indian culture and business.
