Over 18 years ago, Nate returned to Mortenson’s Seattle team full-time as a Field Engineer after interning during his final year of college. He has served in a broad range of project roles, including Engineer, Project Manager, Estimator, Design Phase Manager, and Market Executive across private development, healthcare, hospitality, residential, and higher education sectors. Nate’s diverse construction and development background informs his approach to generating innovative solutions for successful projects while delivering a superior customer experience.
In his current role as Seattle Market Director, Nate excels at assisting our customers during the early development stage, guiding them through due diligence, and ultimately getting the deal done. His leadership throughout preconstruction and construction ensures that Owners’ goals and expectations are consistently met from start to finish.
Nate thrives when building and maintaining strong customer relationships. From discussing Mortenson Development’s (MDI) capabilities to help customers through entitlements and financing or working together to acquire a site, he enjoys navigating uncertainties to keep the project moving forward and ready for our team to build.
Nate is also a key thought leader in locally leading modular and prefabricated construction. Working closely with our team and partners, he helps solve the complexities of building modular to deliver projects quicker, safely, and more cost-effectively. Under Nate’s leadership, we continue to make that innovative process a benefit for our long-term partners, including Citizen, which is growing as the first and only hotel company to build entirely from prefabricated rooms.
Nate has served on the NAIOP Community Enhancement Committee since 2012, helping to plan the annual Community Enhancement project every fall. Outside of the office, he enjoys skiing and summer trips with his family and dedicates time as a youth group leader at his local church. Nate and his wife, Amber, reside in Issaquah with their five children.
