When the path that led you in a new direction brings you to an old mile marker, sometimes you just have to shrug your shoulders and go with it. Because sometimes “going back” is actually “going forward.”
Mark Pavelko, who took his carpentry skills to Ernst Brother’s, these many years ago—1988-2005, to be exact—and then spent the next 13 years nurturing and building his own successful construction firm, has come full circle.
With a résumé newly bolstered by that intense management and leadership experience, he’s returned to Ernst Brothers with even better fine carpentry skills and a toolbox loaded with the enhanced capabilities his new employers need in a field manager.
Mark replaces long-time field manager Tony Rocco, who has retired.
“Mark brings an entrepreneurial spirit to the job, after years of running his own successful business,” says Jake Taylor, Ernst managing partner. “We’re very pleased and excited to have him back. He knows us, he knows our company culture and he ‘gets’ customer service. His body of project management experience makes him even more valuable to us and to our clients.”
As Ernst Brothers grow into new markets with more and larger projects, building its team of fine craftsmen has been a priority. Mark joins Mike Troyan to help meet the burgeoning need for finish carpenters.
“Mark’s carpentry skills are some of the best I’ve ever experienced,” says Jake. “He’s extremely precise and very efficient.”
