Mark’s time at Berg started in 2018, when he came on as Manager of our Paving Division. Mark’s been in construction since high school. He’s worked every type of job–laborer, operator, supervisor, and superintendent–so he knows how to relate to every single person on the team. He spent the last few years training his replacement, Shea Czekai, as Mark prepared to transition out of his role as Paving Manager.
Currently, Mark helps Berg out as a Consultant. In other words, he makes sure we get everything done. We’re grateful for his wealth of experience in estimating, managing people, billing, scheduling, and overall project execution. But there’s nothing that quite compares to his genuine love for the construction industry. It’s a passion that can be contagious in a good way.
Looking at the industry from his current perspective, Mark believes that it’s worth it for construction companies to spend a little extra money up front in order to give people a chance. Mark knows first-hand that the only true education for the field is working with those who have more experience, and you can’t get experience if no one gives you a shot.
These days, Mark is enjoying sitting by the pool, playing golf, and having his family near him. He and his wife have three children, and they maintain a family tradition of having everyone over each Sunday for dinner together at Mark’s house.
