Chicago—Vice President & General Manager of Mortenson Construction’s Chicago office Greg Werner has recently been promoted to senior vice president. Werner has led more than $2.6 billion in projects since opening the Windy City office 16 years ago.
“Greg is an outstanding leader within Mortenson and in the industry,” Mortenson President Dan Johnson said in a statement. “The Chicago office’s strong growth and stellar reputation is a testament to Greg and his success in building complex, ambitious projects with exceptional quality, safety and customer service while recruiting and developing our next generation of construction professionals and craft workers.”
Werner first joined Mortenson back in 1990 as a field engineer, and was promoted several times throughout the years, culminating in his appointment as general manager of the company’s Chicago office in January 2000. He holds a Bachelor of Science in construction management and administration from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and serves on the boards of the Harper College Foundation and Barrington Children’s Charities. Werner is also a member of the City of Hope Chicago Council, the Young President’s Organization and The Chicago Club.
