Brookfield electrical contracting firm, Lemberg Electric, has promoted Kyle Witte to president, beginning January 2024. Witte was selected by Lemberg’s board of directors after a lengthy search from both within and outside the organization.  

“It is our pleasure to name Kyle as the next president of Lemberg Electric,” said Tim Scheid, CEO. “His experience, reputation within the community, and most of all, his rapport with those he will lead make him perfectly suited to take the company forward. Witte’s longevity and reputation for excellence has created a solid foundation for him in the Milwaukee construction market across all industries including healthcare, education and commercial retail.”

Witte’s responsibilities as president will include overseeing the company’s human resources and marketing, as well as all five service areas at Lemberg including, construction and pre-construction, data communications, electrical service, energy technologies, and business signs. He will continue to lead the construction department until a replacement is selected.

“I am extremely honored to have been selected as the next president at Lemberg,” Witte said. “I am excited to help lead the company that has been my home for my entire professional career. In those 28 years, Lemberg has grown and changed, and I have learned so much from those before me. With our leadership team in place, I hope to utilize that knowledge to propel us toward our 100th year in business and beyond.”

Witte joined Lemberg in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in construction administration from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. His certifications in Agile Construction®, healthcare construction, and executive management helped him lead Lemberg’s efforts toward lean construction operations. Witte will also utilize the broad base of technical experience he has amassed while at the company, which includes operations management, computer aided drafting, estimating, large project management, and most recently construction department manager.
