Success Stories

We have multiple teammates in our company who started in the field or shop having no related experience and are now in key leadership roles. Read about Jack’s and Hogan’s experiences..

“Midwest Asphalt has enabled me to pursue my career goals. I had no experience in the construction field when I started in 2010, but with the aid of knowledgeable employees willing to train, a positive learning culture, and an inspiring leadership team, I was able to work my way from a water truck driver to a project management position.” – Jack Fraune

“Five years ago I started with Midwest Asphalt not knowing what I was getting myself into. I had no prior experience in the construction field. Walking onto the job site the first day, I went into with the mindset, “It’s the WILL, not the SKILL.” To my surprise, everyone took a step back and started from the bottom with me. Explaining everything with great detail and really making sure I understood everything and felt comfortable. From then on, I was determined to show my appreciation by excelling the best that I could. I quickly went from not knowing what I was doing, to becoming an Assistant Grading Manager. I wouldn’t have gotten this far if it wasn’t for every person who has helped me along the way. Pushing me to be the best I can be and holding me accountable. For that I’m forever grateful.” – Hogan Domagala

“I started my career at Midwest Asphalt in 1990 with little experience in the industry. I worked summers on a patch crew, a paving crew and a grading crew while going to college. After finishing college, I was given the opportunity to work in the office as an estimator and I ultimately worked my up to chief estimator then onto Vice President of the company.  It’s been a great ride and I feel fortunate for the opportunities Midwest Asphalt has provided to me over the years.” – Matt Timmers, VP of Construction
