Starting with Mortenson in 1999, Dustin climbed the ranks from Laborer to Laborer Foreman, General Foreman, Assistant Superintendent, and then into safety management in 2010. He now oversees the Mortenson Seattle office as Safety Director, responsible for establishing a safety culture through the proper implementation of Mortenson’s Zero Injury Safety Program. Dustin understands how his early involvement in design can influence the safety of our crews and of everyone around our construction site.
Dustin’s favorite part of his role is being involved with every aspect of the business from building buildings to building careers. He is a passionate builder that looks for innovative ways of continuous improvement through lean concepts, first time quality, and Zero Injuries. Dustin loves visiting Mortenson project sites and offices to get to know team members across the organization.
In his free time, Dustin can be found on a sideline cheering on his kids’ sports teams, in the hills hunting, or on any one of the PNW’s bodies of water fishing. He also enjoys educating the next generation of workers and works with ANEW to mentor and develop our future craft team members.
