Happy Holidays from the AGC of Greater Milwaukee
A Message from AGC-GM CEO Mark Kessenich

Dear AGC-GM Members,

As we close out this year and reflect on the changes and challenges, I could not be more appreciative of the magnificent work of our team or more impressed with the strength and resiliency of our Association.   We adapted to new challenges, delivered programs, and demonstrated the deep value of AGC-GM to our members and the industry as a whole.  We are optimistic, energized and prepared for 2021 and look forward to working hard for you and every member.

On behalf of myself and the staff,  we wish you and yours a merry holiday season and a very happy new year!


Mark Kessenich
AGC-GM - Chief Executive Officer
