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.
Maureen Devota joined Wieland as Controller in 1993, and has held numerous positions at Wieland, including Vice-President Finance, and now Chief Financial Officer, a position she assumed on January 1, 2014. Maureen – or Moe as she is affectionately known – became a partner in 1998 and has complete oversight of all of Wieland’s accounting, finance, human resources and risk management activity. Maureen earned her Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Ferris State University in 1987, and spent several years in public accounting, including being a senior auditor for Peat Marwick. She is an active member of the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) and a member of the Lansing Regional Chamber and the Lansing Economic Club.
