Who knew what was around the corner at the beginning of March 2020? What initially was a shock to the system soon became a long-distance endurance race. Teams and ZOOM became essential tools for both business and social interaction.
Whether working in the office, competing at a company-sponsored event, or relaxing at a Friday Happy Hour, maintaining an upbeat and dynamic culture is central to our mission. Covid challenged all of this. But as the saying goes, “When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade”. We adjusted on the fly.
Our quarterly poker night seamlessly transitioned into an online event. Super fun virtual games like Drawful, Trivia Murder Party and Fibbage became staples. We even channeled our inner Vincent Van Goghs and held a part virtual / part in person ‘Painting with a Twist’ get-together. As an added perk we held lotteries to reward participation at the end of our virtual company-wide quarterly meetings.
Beyond the obvious benefit of these events, a key upside has been the enhanced cultural connection they have created between our four offices. So much so that, while Covid is going away, our virtual events are here to stay!
Ever since Kyle joined the M+K team in 2006 he has been steadily rising through the ranks. A shareholder since 2016, his primary focus has been Multi-Family Apartments and Mixed-Use buildings. As the scale and complexity of his projects has grown, so has the size of his team, which now numbers 10. His cool disposition and breadth of experience makes him an invaluable resource for his clients, and a great mentor to our staff.
We’re excited to have Kyle join our Executive Management Team. We’re looking forward to his inevitable contributions, and to the key role he will play in strategizing our future growth!
We are proud to announce the promotion of Mike Boland to Project Manager!
Since he joined our team almost three years ago, Mike has shown great initiative and work ethic. His eagerness to continually take on additional responsibility and put in whatever time it takes to get the job done are both hallmark traits of a successful Project Manager at M+K. With the support of a dedicated team, Mike has been providing a high level of service to his clients, most of which are based in the Midwest.
We couldn’t be happier to have Mike officially join our Project Management team and we all look forward to his contributions to our very bright future. Please join us in congratulating Mike on his promotion!!!
