This includes defining the culture of the company and developing and facilitating systems that reinforce that culture. Cross has worked in the construction and real estate business for over 30 years.

Cross is proud of helping the company grow by more than 40 percent in the last three years and managing it through a global pandemic. He’s also proud that the company has ranked high on the Journal’s list of Fastest Growing Companies four of the last five years. He has led a management transition, implemented a successful rebranding and brought innovative technologies and approaches to Mowery. Another accomplishment that’s he’s proud of is starting the new division of Mowery – the special projects group.

The most important life lesson he’s learned: What others think about you is none of your business!
