Q: When did you first start working for Berg Construction?
A: I’ve been part of Berg Construction since July 2013.
Q: What was your education and career background before Berg?
A: I graduated from Rowan University in 1997. I operated an electrical construction company for ten years, and I have been in one segment or another of the construction industry for 20+ years.
Q: What do you enjoy about your job? What makes you excited to go to work?
A: I love that my job is different every day. I am very competitive, and I am excited by the opportunity to compete every day. Whether we are competing to be awarded a project, selected as the employer of choice by a coveted employee, or finding ways to do something better and faster on a job, our work gives you an opportunity to have an impact. The camaraderie, the team atmosphere, and the challenge that comes with growing a winning team make me excited to work at Berg.
Q: What sets Berg Construction apart from other companies in this industry?
A: They say when you operate a dozer you do not grade by sight but by feel. That is symbolic of how we have built Berg Construction. Berg maintains an uncanny feel for the opportunities around us. Berg developed with growth as the only constant. Early on, we realized in order to grow and take on the opportunities that surround you each day, you must build a team that can operate with autonomy.
Autonomy is what sets Berg apart in our industry. While many companies in the industry are built on centralized control, we pride ourselves on hiring quality people with the experience and confidence to do their jobs without being micromanaged. By hiring, supporting, and trusting each individual employee to do their job, Berg is able to move in more than one direction at a time without ever standing still.
The Berg team is a family and a family takes care of its own. Berg provides many of the benefits you would expect of a quality construction company. But beyond those benefits, it’s the little things Berg does to show appreciation for each member’s hard work that make you feel like they care.
Q: Can you give us some background on your personal life?
A: My wife Erin and I were married on July 3rd, 2011. We have three daughters — Maura, Charlotte, and Nora. We live in Chester Springs, PA. I was born in New Jersey and am the oldest of my four siblings.
I enjoy being active. Given the time and conditions, skiing and surfing with friends and family would be my two favorite things to do. We take trips to Maine and Vermont to get away, but given a free day or two my family is headed down the shore where we spend most of our free time in Ocean City, NJ.
As my daughters get older, I’m enjoying watching them compete in everything they do. I’m a fan of the Phillies, Flyers, and Sixers, but football is king and my team is the Eagles!
