Luke • President and Owner, Commercial General and Specialty Contractor

“[Our company’s] management team has the fortunate opportunity to benefit from Mark Olesen’s knowledge and expertise in the Construction Industry. His extensive experience is benefiting the business in contract negotiations, mentorship, leadership and B2B networking.  Mark is a humble leader who listens with intent and provides tremendous counsel.  Mark can also “roll up the sleeves and put pen to paper” to achieve an outcome versus only counseling on what to do.

Rarely do contractors get the benefit of a well-rounded construction leader.  It is an honor to recommend Mark in assisting other clients with the business acumen necessary to compete in this challenging industry.  His engagement and impact in [our company] is exceptional.”

Mitch • President and Owner, Specialty Contractor

“Mark Olesen has been an advisor for [our company] for about 6 months. Being this is the first time we have started a construction company; we have ideas on how to run the company but haven’t done it before so we don’t know if our ideas are sound. Mark has been in the construction business for so many years at different levels with different companies that we can trust his expertise and advice. Running a business can be over-whelming and he has helped us prioritize our action items. When we meet, we don’t try and take on all issues. We work through one or two, then move on to the next. It is organized and efficient, which is what we like. Most importantly, Mark is personable and flexible. He is easy to talk with. He embraces our ideas and doesn’t try and push all his ideas on what he has done in the past but rather enhance and guide our ideas. Sometimes we do ask how he did things before so we can implement his ideas, which he is always willing to share. Working with Mark has helped us confirm our ideas, make us think in different ways, become more profitable, and open our eyes to the things we don’t know.”
