Mike has been with Pheifer since 1991.
He completed the Carpentry Apprenticeship program through the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development and the Associated Builders and Contractors.
Mike has been awarded the WisDOT structure of the year twice in his career with Pheifer and he continues to produce high qualtiy projects on time and ahead of budget.
In 2019 Mike was promoted to Shop Manager. He ensures safe and efficient shop operations and enhances shop procedures and systems to best serve field operations within budget constraints. He also works to design, implement, and enforce inventory tracking procedures; carry out supervisory responsibilities in accordance with Pheifer's policies.
When not working at Pheifer, Mike enjoys spending time with his family and working with horses on his small family farm.
Second only to Mike in years of service, Rick has been with Pheifer since 1978. Rick not only keeps all of Pheifer’ s equipment in top shape, but also serves as our finishing machine operator on all deck pours. Without Rick’s experience and dedication, jobsite mobilizations and general flow would not happen as seamlessly as they appear to when he is in charge.
In 2011 Rick became one of the first merit-shop operators in Wisconsin to secure Certified Crane Operator (CCO) status on lattice boom crawler cranes as recognized and accredited by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) before joining the Local 139 Operators Union in 2013.
With his wife, Rick has several adult children including a son Adam who is currently a foreman for Pheifer.
