Mike Hockett

Executive VP, Client and Project Development (CO)

Providing exceptional service for our clients is Mike’s fundamental mission on every project, and building great relationships is the key to creating the high-achieving teams who meet that challenge.

In Mike’s role as the Colorado region’s leader in client and project development, he is a liaison for every W.E. O’Neil project and its team. In preconstruction and project management, as well as business development and marketing, he leads by example in “walking the walk” of the company’s values. Most importantly, he ensures that clients are heard, and their project needs met.

Mike’s engaging personality and knowledge of the Metro Denver area and Colorado Springs have helped establish a broad network from which we continue to build new business and garner relationships. In addition to years in the field managing projects, Mike has the added perspectives of having worked in an architecture firm and a glazing subcontracting business. This experience helps when brainstorming creative solutions with our specialty trade and design partners. He has a well-deserved reputation for smooth project execution, from inception to completion.

One of WEO’s values that I particularly appreciate is being a lifelong learner. I consume a lot of non-fiction literature, particularly about leadership. Being a reader helps me be a confident leader, one who connects quickly with others. I know it also fosters creativity in problem solving.
