Meet the Mountain States 2016 Top 20 Under 40 Winners

Young professionals from a variety of disciplines demonstrate their talents and share knowledge to create a more integrated, technology-savvy industry.

The 2016 ENR Mountain State Top 20 Under 40 winners are company presidents and CEOs, architects, engineers, constructors, transportation planners, consultants and project managers, but also sustainability experts, seismic-building specialists and technology whizzes.

Some began their careers with large companies and then had the courage to break away and start their own firms; others have been targeted and promoted by firm principals as promising leaders. All have demonstrated a mastery of new technologies and worked hard to mentor their colleagues as well as students on better construction processes and techniques.

As in past years, our annual contest was rigorous. Companies or individuals were allowed to nominate more than one person, and individuals could nominate themselves. Nominees must be working full-time in some aspect of the commercial construction industry in one or more of the nine states in the Mountain States and Plains region. Those include Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah, and our extended reach into Kansas, Nebraska and the Dakotas.

Other key selection criteria included achievement of/or progress toward industry certifications, significant success in creating more efficient systems, designing new processes or managing landmark projects and volunteering in the industry and the community.

This year’s judges were also a diverse group. Some are past Top 20 Under 40 winners themselves; others are industry veterans. They included: Matt Brower, business development, Sure Steel Inc., South Weber, Utah; Jered Minter, architect, Bennett Wagner Grody Architects, Denver; Katie Page, integrated services manager, GE Johnson Construction Co., Colorado Springs; and Mandy Swarts, project coordinator, Mark Young Construction Inc., Frederick, Colo.

The following pages contain profiles of the winners (offered in alphabetical order), describing their successes and goals.

Congratulations to the winners.

Growing up in a family-owned construction business, Jared Hoeflich realized early that he wanted to pursue a career in the industry. He earned a bachelor’s degree in construction management from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and then interned with Hensel Phelps, Greeley, Colo., where he worked full-time after graduation. 

Since joining Swinerton four years ago, Hoeflich has been responsible for acquiring almost $300 million of work. In the community, he has been active in Swinerton’s involvement with CM Cares, a program in the CSU CM department  that pairs students with community members who need help with construction. Hoeflich also spearheaded efforts with the Swinerton Foundation to create sustainable funding for CM Cares by helping to start an endowment for the program.

Hoeflich currently serves on the board of directors for AGC of Colorado and is a past chair of the AGC Colorado Future Leaders Forum.
