Michael Brian Buchler

I began work as a general laborer for my fathers construction company when I was 14 years old. Educated in civil engineering and construction management, I began my professional career as an estimator and reached the position of Project Executive. Coupled with fundamental technical skills earned over the past 14 years of Project Management, I spent some of the last few years teaching and managing the work of others in an executive role. I am looking for a place where my enthusiasm, energy, leadership and passion will be able to have a positive effect on the people around me.
