MARK TRENTO

Project Executive

 

HIS ROLE

As Project Executive, Mark provides oversight to the project teams by managing, coordinating and developing his staff to ensure projects are completed within budget and schedule, while meeting client needs and business objectives.

HIS BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE

Mark’s fascination with construction began during childhood and evolved through the years from basic carpentry in high school to framing, HVAC and refrigeration systems through college. While working on two large residential condominium projects in Tahoe, he was offered a position as a field superintendent for Shorenstein. After five years in the field, Mark dove into the project management side of commercial construction, and that career path has stuck for over 30 years.

Mark began working at Skyline in 2005, just before CEO David Hayes restructured the company as an ESOP. Mark was one of the first employee owners under the new structure and viewed this alignment as an opportunity to grow a company with the same values and passion for construction that he possessed.

HIS MANAGEMENT STYLE

In recent years, Mark’s passion for construction has shifted to grooming future leaders of the industry. Mark believes in allowing his team the freedom to work towards their strengths, while teaching them from his own experience in commercial construction: “I give my team plenty of rope. I want them to develop their own skills and encourage them to ask questions and to not be intimidated by what they don’t know. I still learn something new every day,” said Mark.

HIS INTERESTS AND HOBBIES

Even in his leisure time, Mark prefers to do construction and is always working on a project around the house. He enjoys skiing, biking, cooking (and eating) and milling lumber at this family’s ranch in Murphys.
