Just wanted to publicly thank my business partner, my nephew, my friend for his years of commitment and service to Northway Construction. For those who haven’t heard, Ed Northway has left Northway Construction to pursue another business venture. We wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor!
Here is the news release that ran in the Brainerd Dispatch:
BAXTER — Steve Northway, a pioneer in the Brainerd lakes area construction industry, will become Chief Executive Officer at Northway Construction Services in January of 2013.
Steve will remain Northway Construction’s Chief Operating Officer as well, leading the Baxter-based construction company he started with his nephew, Ed Northway II, in 2006.
“We both had a passion to create a great company that would build the highest quality homes, provide world class customer service, and take the best care of our people,” said Steve Northway. “And that’s exactly what we did.”
Ed Northway, who currently serves as Northway Construction’s CEO, is transitioning from his position to start a new business venture outside of the construction industry.
“I’m excited to use the leadership, sales and marketing skills I’ve gained at Northway Construction in my new endeavor, but it’s bittersweet to be leaving,” said Ed Northway.
In the last six years, Northway Construction built Minnesota’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified home, meaning it was the first home in the state to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s benchmark for the design, construction and operation of energy efficient, environmentally friendly buildings.
Northway Construction also completed the state’s first LEED-certified whole-house remodel project, converting a drafty outdated cabin on Agate Lake into a modern day Nordic-looking getaway.
Last year, another remodeling project gained Northway the national Excellence in Construction Eagle Award from Associated Builders and Contractors as well as the Contractor of the Year Award by the Minnesota chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
“I’m proud of our company’s growth and everything we have accomplished in the last six years,” said Ed Northway. “I’m looking forward to what lies ahead, both for me and Northway Construction.”
Northway Construction specializes in building and remodeling homes and commercial buildings throughout the Midwest.
