Commonwealth Companies Names New Senior VP Of Construction

Commonwealth Construction Corporation is pleased to introduce Rick Nierzwicki as the Company’s new Senior Vice President of Construction.  Nierzwicki will assume the duties of managing day-to-day construction operations both regionally and nationwide from Brent Schumacher who is being promoted to Executive Vice President of The Commonwealth Companies.  With over 30 years of experience in all aspects of construction Nierzwicki started his career at Mortenson Construction where he attained the position of Project Manager.  He went on to serve as Vice President of Operations at C.G. Schmidt, Inc. and was instrumental in the construction management and extensive concrete work for the creation of the Milwaukee Art Museum’s famous Quadracci Pavillion, which opened in 2001.  His success propelled him to later roles as President of Peter Schwabe, Inc., where he led a turnaround of this great family company and Keller, Inc. where his leadership guided the company from just one location to a total of four offices.

“Rick brings a broad set of experiences in leadership and construction management, as well as a track-record of growth and success to Commonwealth.  His ability to identify and attract talented individuals who are committed to his vision is impressive.  With eight large projects in Wisconsin, in addition to those we’re working on in six other states, he is the perfect fit to help us succeed during this time of broad growth.”   –  Louie Lange, III, President, The Commowealth Companies.

Nierzwicki is committed to community involvement.  In addition to donating time to his church, he has served on a number of boards of directors.  One notable experience was organizing the largest annual fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Appleton for three consecutive years.  He has also served on the board of directors for the Summerstage Theatre Group, where he and his wife, Dee, have been committed to supporting the performing arts.
