Mark Kemp, President and CEO
Any company is only as good as the employees which make it up. This is what puts Superior Masonry at the top. We employ only "superior people" at every level of the company. The President and CEO is Mark M. Kemp. Mark has been in the construction business since the late 1960's. He started as a yard employee and worked for Superior during his college years. In 1973 he started a brick washing company called Badger Brickwashers, cleaning brick for various mason contractors. This gave him practical business knowledge while attending UW-M and majoring in Business Administration. He graduated from UW-M in 1975 with a Business Degree and proceeded to work for Superior Masonry as Secretary-Treasure. While running the office, he soon took over running the concrete division and then the masonry division. In 1982 he took over full control of Superior Masonry Builders, becoming President and acting as CEO. This growing up through the ranks is what helps solidify the office and the field.

Mr. Kemp serves on various committees, some which are listed below:

  • Past President of Mason Contractors Association of Milwaukee
