What I Like at Dan Vos Construction
The great culture we have here makes me proud of our company and exited about my work. Our people are a pleasure to work with, easy to learn from and have a sense of humor.

My Work
I enjoy a wide variety in my work; especially preparing proposals and presentations to win new projects, submitting our completed work and employees for awards, promoting community events, advertising, managing our website, social media and public relations. Recently I was part of the proposal teams for Tessa Tape expansion and the new South Christian High School.

I'm Inspired By
My dad moved our family to the United States in the early 80's - when he was 40 years old. He took a big risk to leave our home in Gdansk, Poland to come to Grand Rapids, Michigan in search freedom. He was an electrician from the age 18 working on huge cranes in the shipyards of Szczecin and Gdansk and later managed manufacturing of prefabricated elements for high-rise construction. In the US he became an electronics and robotics technician at Benteler Automotive. He always finds a positive side, but when something’s not right, he just says, “We must change this.”
He loves the United States for the great country that it is and because it gives people the tools to be successful.

Most Proud
My son, Max who is an Eagle Scout and wants to be an entrepreneur.

What’s the first thing people notice
That I’m tall or that I have an accent... I am 100% Polish.

Best piece of advice/favorite quote

 “Quo Vadis” is a quote from an old favorite book of mine which means “Where are you going?” It reminds me to keep my feet on the ground and keep my eyes on the big picture.

Outside of Work
Scouting, biking and travel

Things I could not Live without
Freedom, Family, Faith and two new ones: Health and Time

Makes me smile
