Jon Lynch will succeed Dan Kozakiewicz as president of the corporation effective May 8, 2017. Lynch will report to the board of directors, and Kozakiewicz will remain as chairman. Lynch was selected after a three-month search process with candidates from across the Midwest and parts of Canada.
Lynch will be responsible for establishing overall corporate objectives, ensuring profitable growth and fulfilling the company’s commitment to its customers and the community. The safety, marketing, operations, financial and business administration segments of the company will directly report to Lynch. He will also be responsible for project development and communications for the company.
Jon Lynch’s strength, experience and proven track record in leading complex organizations, managing change, strategic planning and execution — as well as his ability to bring people together to capitalize on opportunities — will be a great complement to the present Three Rivers management group.
“Jon’s belief that, at the heart of every opportunity lies people, convinced us he was the right choice for Three Rivers. Jon has a knack for putting himself in the shoes of others, addressing their needs and interests, not his own. He is a master at pulling people together for a common cause, bringing out the best in them and giving them the confidence to succeed”, said Kozakiewicz.
Lynch will act as a liaison between the board of directors, the management, the employees, clients and the shareholders, lead day-to-day operations and oversee the administrative and financial aspects of Three Rivers. He will also be responsible for protecting and promoting our position of leadership with respect to safety, quality, merit shop philosophy, employee relationships and excellence in delivering construction services.
Lynch’s experience serving the community in a variety of civic and philanthropic leadership positions will continue to be directly correlated to Three Rivers’ customer base. His passion, enthusiasm and engagement in community support will help Three Rivers advance its long standing commitment to Midland and The Great Lakes Bay Region.
For forty years Three Rivers has grown and built a reputation of being a company that our clients, employees and community rely on. We look to Jon Lynch to be a major contributor to that continued success.
Jon Lynch holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Urban Planning from Michigan State University and a Master of Public Administration degree from Central Michigan University. He and his wife Tina have four children and reside in Midland.
