Developing Expertise in a New Market
Since entering the Electric Vehicle market, Mortenson has evolved into the go-to resource for the deployment of first-time technology. Customers trust us with their innovative ideas, knowing that our team has the experience to bring their vision to life. Our team thrives on taking a concept and running with it; creating from scratch and working alongside our customers to reach the best overall solution.
We Learn to Learn for our Customers
At Mortenson we know how to learn-to-learn. We think of our projects through our customers desired vision and adapt to make sure we are delivering the best possible outcome. But everything that we are doing is so new, so how do we do it?
My best guess is the combination of an empathy-led, camaraderie-based on-site leadership. This leadership has created a team that builds a micro-grid in a fully-functioning 150-bus depot in downtown DC with solar, BESS, natural gas generators, and EV chargers, all working in an islanded mode (something never done before). These are unsolvable problems to some of our industry peers, but that’s what we do here.
Living our people-first culture
From the leadership team to the boots on the ground, our focus on people—and our care for each other, our customers, and our community—is as authentic as it gets. We go above and beyond to deliver on our commitments. Our cultural principles of “We Before Me” and “Do the Right Thing” keep us honest and transparent. We don’t say things just to "win" or save face; we’ll have the tough conversations as needed, so we can all continue forward, building trust and deepening our sense of responsibility to each other.
I'm deeply committed to supporting and mentoring the next generation. At Mortenson, we provide our team members with tools and support through formal training, informal mentorships, and making sure they have opportunities to gain critical on-the-job experience.
We also want to have fun while encouraging learning and innovation. So we empower our teams to use their imaginations to develop innovations and efficiencies; creatively solve problems; take on new challenges; tap into their potential; and ultimately, bring out the best in each other. After all, knowledge can have a limit…but imagination never will!
