Congratulations Mike Goergen, Ross Inselman, and Mike Mathwig on your new roles at Southview Design. We're lucky to have you on board.
Mike Goergen finished his degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2005. He’s worked for Southview Design the last four years as a Project Manager. In 2018, he passed his certification exam to become one of our landscape architects. Although he will continue as project manager on select projects, his design talents will be utilized in the Builder Division. He loves to design outdoor rooms with a contemporary northwoods style – a simple, streamlined design with natural elements. Since he's a quiet, laid-back sort of guy, it comes as no surprise he loves serenity of hiking the outdoors. One memorable trip – a 13-mile hike inside the Haleakala volcano in Hawaii.
Ross Inselman is the new Facility Manager for Southview Design. No stranger to Southview, Ross worked as a crew member from 2004-2005. For a few years after that, he worked springs and summers with his own landscape company and spent fall/winters as a carpenter with his interior remodeling company. Overall, he has twenty years of management and customer service experience. He returned to Southview Design in 2018 as Operations Manager. Now, as a Facility Manager, Ross will take care of Southview’s building, parking lots, warehouse, vehicles, and yard. He believes a healthy work environment has a positive impact on the culture of the workplace.
Mike Mathwig is a Landscape Designer/Project Manager for Southview Design. One of the new additions to the Builder Division, Mike has been with Southview for 3 seasons. Ten years prior to coming to Southview, he was a jack-of-all-trades in the green industry, working as a project manager as well as in landscape design/sales and IT. His greatest satisfaction is in design/sales. He loves the creative aspect of design work. “This is another adventure at Southview”, he said. “I love working with clients and seeing their dreams come true.” Besides working with residential clients, Mike will also design for some of the National Homebuilders.
