Leadership


ROCKY BUKSA

PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER - Rocky has been the cornerstone of Midlite Construction Ltd.’s success since he founded the company in 1989. Prior to Midlite’s formation, Rocky worked for several companies including Alberta Power and Valard. During this time he gained broad exposure to the powerline industry. It was also during this time that he was exposed to different ways of doing business and where he was able to develop his own idea of how a business ought to operate.

Thankfully, Rocky took what he had learned from his experience and used it to build Midlite from the ground up. Today, as the company’s president, Rocky is an ever-present influence on the way we do business. Always available to his employees and always available to his clients, Rocky sets the example for Midlite’s employees to follow. The organization has grown with his values which include putting the client first, working safe and smart, and giving focus and attention to the tradespeople that make our business possible.
