Three of our finest were recently recognized for the roles they play in the construction industry. Findorff is proud to share this trifecta of recognition.
Senior Project Manager Eric Plautz was recently named part of In Business magazine's 2019 40 Under 40 class. Having worked 18 years for Findorff, he has led efforts on various high-profile projects, including many unique facilities on the Epic Campus. Of all the projects that Eric has worked on throughout his career, he is most proud of the work he and his team accomplished at Country View Elementary School in Verona following damage from a level-three tornado in 2014. “In my job, I get to build neat things for people all the time," says Eric. "Although we only put a building back to the way it was for this project, I never have felt such gratitude and received such a heartfelt thank you as I did from the School staff once we completed construction.” Project Manager Dan Weiss recently received recognition as a Rising Young Professional by The Daily Reporter. In the last few years, Dan has been involved with several significant projects including Marquette University's - The Commons, Mequon-Thiensville School District, and Alverno College. "I enjoy the change of pace from the office to the field, problem solving, and learning new things every day," explains Dan. "Project management is a rewarding profession. It offers the chance to directly experience a project's progress from start to finish, work through all the challenges along the way, as well as see happy building owners and occupants at the end of each project.
"Director of Project Management Jim Martin was also recognized by The Daily Reporter. In addition to his many industry successes managing multilocation projects, Jim is proud of his work in the community. He has served on the Ronald McDonald House Madison Board since 2014. In 2018, he received the Red Shoe Award as a member of the community whose actions have positively impacted Ronald McDonald House Charities®. In his role on the Construction Cabinet for the Ronald McDonald House, he helped secure $2 million of in-kind donations that are helping expand the local facility to twice its size. "It's an honor to be able to represent Findorff in the community," he says. "I appreciate the ability to exercise my professional expertise to help the lives of sick kids and their families become less burdened.
"Congratulations to Eric, Dan, and Jim on their recent honors!"
