Title: President of the Building Group, Sundt Construction

Source of pride:Helping Sundt’s Building Group grow to over$1 billion in revenue.  Being entrusted to lead such a talented and amazing group of employee-owners gives me tremendous pride.”

The personality trait that helped you succeed:Being a good listener and having a relentless/never give up attitude.  Construction is about solving challenges.  Listening to all aspects of a challenge and staying focused is key to getting to a viable solution.”

The personality trait that got you into trouble:Inability to rely on others. Trying to do everything myself was growth limiting in my early years.  I had to learn to trust others to do their part and not micromanage.”

Best childhood memory:Traveling across the country with my grandparents in their 1967 Cadillac when I was 10 years old.  Had the opportunity to see the Grand Canyon and so many other wonderful sites.  Ignited my passion for traveling to places I’ve never been before.”
