Valuing our employees as family


Craig Wieland

Craig Wieland joined his father – Wieland founder Don Wieland – as a superintendent in 1981, and has served in almost every capacity at Wieland since, including his current role as President. Known for his dynamic optimism and his ability to see the upside in most every situation, Craig has established himself as a national leader in the construction and business community. Craig was named Wieland’s second President in 1989, just shortly before the passing of his father in 1990. Prior to this passing of the mantle, Craig served as a superintendent, project manager and vice- president, overseeing Wieland’s early growth and helping bridge the generational transition from Wieland as a local construction company to a regional, and now international, one. Craig has overseen the formation and installation of much of what makes Wieland the company that it is today. Wieland’s proprietary 30-60-90 program, its Value Engineering System, and its transition to an ISO Certified firm in 2000 were all benchmarks of his leadership. Perhaps the hallmark of Craig’s three decades at the helm are his famous “Monday Morning Meetings”, a time on the first Monday of every month where all Wieland employees are invited to join in and discuss the firm’s latest activities. Craig is a devoted husband, father and grandfather, and is proud to be married to his wife Jennifer for over 30 years. He has financed and led the construction and administration of several orphanages in India and Honduras. He has served in leadership capacities at South Church (Lansing) and The Michigan Chamber of Commerce; and, he is the author of three books, including “Pointed Poems: Tools for Teaching Conservative Thinking”, a fully illustrated book of his thoughts on business and politics.

Executive Vice President

Scott Wieland

Scott Wieland joined Wieland in 1984 as one of just three employees at the company which his father founded. Since then, Scott has helped lead Wieland to its status as one of ENR’s Top Contractors and as one of the nation’s most respected construction management firms. Scott’s contributions to Wieland can be found in almost every department. He started out as a superintendent, overseeing projects in Michigan, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. He transitioned to become a successful project manager, managing over $150M of construction all while travelling to various states to service Wieland’s key clients. When his father passed away in 1990, Scott and his brother, Craig, assumed the mantle of leadership and helped triple the company’s volume. Outside of his contributions to project operations, Scott has been an important part of Wieland’s business development activities. His skills in estimating, constructability and holding projects on budget have contributed mightily to Wieland’s laser-like focus on customer satisfaction. Scott was also instrumental in opening Wieland’s first two regional offices, relocating to Orlando during its formation and spending significant time in Shreveport during its launch. Scott and his wife Tonya are committed parents and grandparents, and also have a heart for global missions. In addition to their own four children, they are proud adoptive parents of a fifth child, Martina Wieland, from Guatemala.
