Leadership is a combination of promoting excellence, treating people with respect, and empowering team members to achieve their best.

Creating win-win outcomes 

The legal team thrives on helping Mortenson create and maintain win-win relationships. One of Mortenson’s strengths – and a key to creating win-win outcomes – is our ability to work collaboratively with customers to solve complex problems. For its part, the legal team prides itself on working seamlessly with our business colleagues to address complex legal, procurement, and contract matters, grounded in a deep understanding of how these things impact our ability to deliver for customers. In doing so we help the company create win-win outcomes with customers and trade partners alike.

Sustaining our unique culture

At Mortenson, doing the right thing isn’t just a catch phrase, but a deeply-ingrained part of who we are. The legal team recognizes that we have a vital role to play in nurturing and sustaining our culture of integrity. We do so through advising and training that helps team members at all levels understand and honor our obligations and values, and by the examples we set.

Valuing each person’s contributions

Mortenson has a unique combination of excellence and respect for team members. And the two go hand-in-hand, of course. We strive to treat each person with dignity and respect, to honor diversity in all of its dimensions, and to enable each team member to use his or her talents to the fullest. At the same time, our focus on collaboration helps us be more together than we can be individually – and we can accomplish great things together.


I have a passion for engaging every member of our group to establish together a best-in-class legal department—one grounded in legal excellence and that partners seamlessly with our colleagues to achieve the company’s goals, helps sustain Mortenson’s culture of integrity, promotes a more equitable society, and is positioned to flourish far into the future.
