Understanding Where You Want to Be
The best relationships are based in trust. This means we never over promise or sell what we can’t deliver. To fulfill your needs, we take the time to fully understand where you want to be and make a plan to get you there. We lean into the tough decisions and engage with you in a meaningful way to be a true partner and an extension of your business.
Doing the Right Thing
Doing the right thing goes beyond what we deliver, it is also about how we conduct ourselves. This starts at the top and flows down through the project team, to trade partners and everyone who steps on site. Setting a good example and always doing the right thing makes everyone better. It positively impacts our customers’ experience and their business.
Depth of Resources
With company operations nationwide, Mortenson has a depth of resources that we leverage on our local and regional projects. We share industry trends, lessons learned, and provide alternate approaches to solving our customers’ challenges more efficiently.
Discovering Talent in New Places
Today’s leaders need to look for talent in new arenas. We need to search beyond those graduating with traditional construction and engineering degrees, seeking other sources of expertise for a richer knowledge base. There is a wealth of untapped talent out there that can contribute broader perspectives and a more diverse workforce.
I grew up on a farm in southeast Iowa, just outside the town of Sigourney, and attended Iowa State University. Iowa is my home, and I am deeply committed to the Eastern Iowa community. The entire Iowa team is personally invested in building the local region, recruiting and retaining the best talent possible, and advancing opportunities for all.
