Speaker: Craig Koehler

Speaker Bio: Craig Koehler is a dedicated Project Controls Manager with a unique journey shaped by both military service and a passion for construction excellence.

💪 The Army National Guard played a pivotal role in shaping Craig’s path, providing not only financial support for his education but also instilling crucial values of integrity and adaptability. Serving as an infantry soldier in Wisconsin after intense training at Fort Benning deepened his understanding of service and resilience, reinforcing the core values passed down by his parents.

🌍 Craig’s military journey led him across various landscapes, from tracking flight records in Jacksonville to a year-long deployment in Iraq during the Iraqi Freedom War. The experience of rebuilding communities, providing security, and witnessing the development firsthand profoundly impacted his perspective, fostering a deep appreciation for the privileges of American citizenship.

🛠️ Transitioning from the military after nine years, he pursued my Construction Management degree from the University of North Florida. Following several years in the construction industry, he found his way to Haskell. Their commitment to Team, Excellence, Service, and Trust resonated deeply with the values Craig carried from his military service.

🏗️ Now, as a Project Controls Manager at Haskell, Craig applies the lessons learned – accountability, teamwork, and a commitment to excellence – to drive pre-construction projects forward. Integrity remains at the core of his approach, ensuring accountability while fostering a collaborative environment where no one is left behind.
