His promotion comes not long after the 10-year anniversary of the office’s opening, for which Schubert was an integral team member, then in the position of Vice President of Preconstruction. A decade later, Schubert has remained invaluable in Big-D Construction Midwest’s growth in Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri, and Wisconsin. Since its opening, Big-D Construction Midwest has built over 5,000 housing units and won more than $1 billion worth of work.
"Cory's exceptional ability to build and nurture teams has truly set him apart,” said Troy Thompson, Big-D Companies’ Chief Operating Officer. “His dedication to creating a unique and inclusive culture within the company has made a lasting impact on everyone fortunate enough to work with him. Cory's leadership has not only resulted in a highly motivated and engaged team, but has also fostered an environment where each individual feels valued and empowered.”
A graduate of Northern Iowa University with a degree in construction management, Schubert has been involved in Minnesota construction circles for nearly two decades — excluding a four-year stint working in Seattle. After opening the Big-D Construction Midwest office in 2013, he was promoted to Vice President of Operations in 2016. In 2022, he was named the office’s Senior Vice President and Managing Director.
“I’m tremendously proud of what we at Big-D have accomplished in the Midwest,” Schubert said. “The Midwest office has grown alongside many successful teams in the Big-D Companies in the last 10 years. Our culture and our people define us; they drive the success of our company. Clients, design consultants, employees, and peers, I’m thankful to be working with the very most talented folks in the industry.”
