Matt Langreck needed an internship going into the summer before his final semester of college at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.

He began researching companies in the Milwaukee area and ultimately landed at Hunzinger Construction.

“I noticed that they were doing some work for the entertainment block for the Bucks, which I thought was really intriguing,” Langreck said. “A few weeks went by and I noticed they had posted an internship position on our school job board, so I reached out and eventually secured an internship.”

After that experience, Langreck was hired as an assistant project manager and later promoted to project manager.

“They have really placed a lot of trust in me and given me many opportunities to flourish over the last two years, which I’m very grateful for,” he said. “We are able to maintain a small family business atmosphere while competing for (and winning) the biggest and best projects in southeastern Wisconsin, which is an incredible combination.”

Joan Zepecki, Hunzinger diversity and community outreach coordinator, said that Langreck is a hard worker who shows up every day with enthusiasm and isn’t afraid to ask questions.

“He is thorough, smart, respectful and willing to learn and get better every day,” Zepecki said.

In his role as project manager, Langreck said there is little room for error.

“You need to be on top of your game at all times,” he said. “There is a never-ending list of things to be done, which can be stressful and overwhelming if you are not prioritizing or managing your time effectively, which are skills that are developed through experience.

“It’s definitely a challenge, but keeping a clear head and keeping things in perspective is very important.”

When he is not on the clock at Hunzinger, Langreck enjoys reading and learning about different subjects, exercising and lifting weights, and watching and playing sports.
