Mike Ford grew up in a construction family and has come a long way from his first job of pulling nails out of forms for 50 cents per hour when he was 12 years old. A New Jersey native, Mike started his adult career as a project engineer, building technical projects in the eastern United States before heading westward. Since joining DPR’s Redwood City office in 1993, Mike has taken on several different roles and levels of responsibility, including successfully leading Arizona operations for more than a decade, establishing and leading the company’s National Operations Group and Healthcare Think Tank, and becoming a member of the management committee and moving east to further develop and grow DPR’s presence on the East Coast.

Always concerned with taking care of customers, Mike now focuses on DPR's national core maket groups as well as sales and marketing. Bringing his 30+ years of operational experience into the sales process, Mike prides himself on building strong relationships and making it easier for customers to buy.
