“I am thrilled to add Derek’s enthusiasm and expertise to our executive team,” said Curt Mulder, President and Owner of Wolverine Building Group. “We sought his skills and personal attributes to guide Wolverine through our accelerating growth. Our team of over 180 team members in three offices across Michigan will benefit from the application of his strategic insight.”
Wolverine has experienced continued growth under the leadership and ownership of Mulder. Adding a COO to the executive team is the planned next step to support the expansion of services.
“Wolverine is the right fit for my talent and passion. I am eager to apply my experience with the wealth of talent they currently employ,” Hunderman said. “This company historically has engaged the highest levels of ingenuity to accomplish incredible projects. It’s exciting to lead the next generation’s timeline.”
Hunderman has devoted his career to propelling organizations to advanced stages of growth. “This company is known for its superior capabilities, strong relationships, and commitment to craft," he said. "I anticipate leveraging Wolverine’s status as master builders to advance our next phase of construction leadership."
Walters began his career in construction as a Journeyman Electrician in the southwest region of Michigan. As his career grew, he found his inclination toward safety and safety education pulled him toward joining MIOSHA. He spent over a decade in regulation, then began work in safety education and training.
“I was attracted to the company because of the value the leadership team placed on safety and their interest in my particular dedication to training and education,” Walters said.
Wolverine makes safety a priority for employees and continually involves the team members in strategy to increase safety on jobsites. Integration and engagement focused Walter’s decision to join the team. “When we are able to help workers invest in their safety, that is a game-changer," he said. "Wolverine’s approach is why I wanted to work for this organization. It’s a dream come true."
