"The relationships they have built with the community and organizations across eastern Nebraska and western Iowa are long-lasting. My goal is to apply that approach to attracting and retaining great talent and for MCL to be seen as a premier employer in the community."
VanderWert spent several years recruiting in the technology and IT fields. He understands what it takes to identify top talent in a competitive industry and how having the right employees help organizations grow and thrive long-term.
"Having the right people that will make a positive impact on the organization and do right by the customers is vital in long-term success within any organization. Finding the person to do the job is one thing. Finding the person that can do the job and fit within the organization with the team and culturally is what we are looking for in the people we hire at MCL Construction," said VanderWert.
MCL Construction has grown substantially in the past five years, approaching 200 employees.
"We want to keep growing," added MCL Construction Senior Vice President Tony Fucinaro. "Ben will play a significant role as we continue to expand our geographical footprint and provide our relationship-based building model to clients who are looking for a partner to solve their building problems."
MCL Construction recently moved into its new corporate headquarters located at 14558 Portal Circle in La Vista, Nebraska. The building has made a big impression on VanderWert and he believes it will make his job a lot easier.
"Having a new and welcoming facility will undoubtedly help in attracting people. In my opinion, it is all about the opportunity and culture of the organization. But having a place to work where there is proper/enhanced technology, collaboration spaces, and an open environment will help in growth and retention."
