Background & Experience
Brent Vogt has been swinging a hammer since he was 12 years old. Under the mentorship of his father, a mason in rural Minnesota, Vogt honed his trade skills from an early age. Not only did he learn every facet of construction hands-on, but also he learned how to (and how not to) lead a team.
After earning his Associate of Applied Science degree in the US Air Force and serving as a non-commissioned officer in the Air National Guard for seven years, Vogt went on to serve as a field engineer, project engineer, and quality engineer around the United States and overseas.
By 2009, Vogt was managing large-scale international construction and engineering projects in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and the United States. While furthering his professional experience and managing teams of up to 300, Vogt continued his education earning a BA in Management from Saint John’s University, an MS in Design and Construction from Northwestern University, an MBA from Boise State University, and an MS in Marketing from The University of Alabama.
