Scott Lausten – design and project manager at Keller – is considered a mover and shaker who is constantly searching for ways to make projects run smoother, less expensive and more efficient.

The waves that the 32-year-old has areadly made at Keller, where he has been for almost five years, are having a ripple effect throughout the industry.

He was the youngest assistant project manager to be promoted at the company in 2016. Lausten said he has faced a great deal of adversity in his career but continues to grow.

“I keep my head up. I keep pounding the pavement,” Lausten said. “It’s really a love of construction that keeps me going.”

He has changed the way Keller markets its projects, introducing a reliance on new technologies like drone videos. He is also LEED Green Certified. Early in his career, he supervised the detailed construction of a 20-unit apartment complex with LEED Platinum certification.

Whether attending conferences like Commercial Real Estate Development, achieving his own real estate license or working toward his pilot’s license in his free time, Lausten is always striving to be his best every day. He also volunteers his time to Habitat for Humanity and has become an advocate for the village of Slinger, where he lives.

“I’m a guy that has to keep moving,” Keller said. “I have to keep learning. If you have passions, you should just go for it. I have a lot of aspirations and I just keep checking things off the list.”

Some of the aspirations on that list include maintaining a spot as a top salesman and having a lifelong career at the company.

“If all goes well and I can keep finding clients and keep making people happy in that industry, I could see myself working for Keller until I retire,” Lausten said.
