Ford Berg Interview on Dirt Talk Podcast

Return to Blog

Berg Construction CEO Ford Berg was recently the special guest on the Dirt Talk podcast, hosted by BuildWitt‘s Aaron Witt. Below are the show notes and the link to the podcast:

“Listen, we don’t expect you to know all this stuff. Ask — there are people with much more experience here who are here to support you. But the minute you say, ‘I got this, and I know this,’ you own that. And if you can’t do that, then that’s a problem. We want you to ask for help and give you whatever support we can, but if you try to be too confident and it doesn’t work, then there’s a different conversation that has to be had.”

From a young age, Ford Berg and his siblings napped in the family camper as their parents tirelessly worked together to grow their logging business. Home-school, hard work, and family-time were blended day in and day out, forging a deep understanding in Ford about what it takes to get the job done right and on time.

While at Temple University, Ford followed in his parents’ footsteps and launched his first business, performing environmental tests in residential developments between classes with his younger brother Luke. During the winters, when construction would slow, he began chasing snow removal jobs to keep a steady cash-flow.

As the business quickly grew, Ford ended up leaving college just three classes short of graduation to focus on building Berg into what it is today. Sixteen years later, Berg Construction handles heavy civil construction, municipal utility work, commercial and residential site development, road construction and asphalt paving, as well as landfill construction projects. And wouldn’t you know, the entire family – including Ford’s parents – all work for the company.

The Berg model is simple — find incredibly talented people with prior business ownership experience and let them run with their divisions. Berg Construction supports four different divisions, with talented leadership teams and a field of committed people.
