WIELAND, an ENR Top 400 construction management firm headquartered in Lansing, Michigan, has announced the appointment of Edward Lorenz as chief executive officer, effective June 1.

Lorenz attended Lansing Community College and Western Michigan University before starting his career as a carpenter in 1995, where he worked throughout the mid-Michigan region. He went on to have various roles in the construction industry, from superintendent to project manager to senior project manager. Lorenz joined WIELAND in 2014 as a senior project manager and began his tenure by overseeing the construction of the Pratt Paper Mill in Valparaiso, Indiana.

In 2018, Lorenz became an equity partner at WIELAND. In 2020, he joined seven other shareholders in their purchase of all remaining stock from retiring president Craig Wieland. Lorenz was named managing director in 2020. As chief executive officer, Lorenz will oversee all departments at WIELAND headquarters as well as having ultimate responsibility for WIELAND’s regional offices in Orlando, Florida, and Shreveport, Louisiana.

“We are excited to name Ed Lorenz as our new Chief Executive Officer,” a joint statement from WIELAND’s ownership group said. “This action is predicated by Ed’s strong performance during his tenure as managing director and by our company’s outstanding performance overall.
