Leading general contractor Jacobsen Construction Company has announced that Matt Radke has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer (COO) effective June 14. Radke has decades of successful leadership experience at Jacobsen and a proven track record of delivering optimal results for clients.
Radke joined Jacobsen in 1995 as a project engineer and quickly earned the trust of colleagues, trade partners and project owners with his eye for detail, tireless work ethic and personable approach. His precise understanding of each client’s vision for their project has successfully guided Jacobsen through some of its most complex and demanding undertakings ever. He became Vice President of Construction in 2018 and Executive Vice President of Construction in 2020.
