Marc began his career in the construction industry and with Granger on May 5, 1984, and has served in a variety of roles including laborer, labor foreman, carpenter and carpenter foreman before moving into the superintendent and site manager roles.

“It’s no secret in this industry, if you’re going to win big work you have to do big work and do it well; Marc thrives on that,” notes Granger President Dennis Carignan. “In our company history, Marc has been a part of our biggest and our most complicated projects – all the while providing mentorship and training, not only to the next generation, but the generation after that.”

Some of Marc’s early projects included the W.K. Kellog Foundation Headquarters, Cooley Law School Renovation, Comprehensive Logistics, Great Lakes Bancorp Headquarters, Pine River Correctional Facility and Michigan State University’s Animal Health and Diagnostic Lab. Marc’s extraordinary work ethic and ability to solve complex project challenges landed him on several high-profile projects from 2000-2015, including the Sparrow West Wing Tower, the Detroit Arsenal Administration Building and Parking Structure, St. Mary Mercy Hospital’s South Pavilion Addition and the Magna DexSys Manufacturing Facility.
