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.
