Matt Burow founded Catalyst Construction in 2004 with a vision for a better brand of construction firm, one that fosters transparency and cultivates strong relationships through a staff of focused, seasoned industry professionals who are personally committed to serve both client and community. Matt’s mission has been to build a firm that utilizes a construction management business model with no self-performing workforce in order to ensure that owners receive competitive bids in all work categories without conflicts of interest among “self-perform” trades. It is a model that allows Catalyst to receive and select from a substantial number of bids on each project in all work categories from both union and non-union trades.
While growing Catalyst into a market juggernaut, Matt was recognized in 2014 as one of The Milwaukee Business Journal’s “40 Under 40”, honoring Milwaukee professionals under the age of 40 who are making great strides in business and community involvement. In 2019, Matt helped found Catalyst Partners with the mission of further expanding Catalyst Construction’s business model by focusing on the pursuit of positively impactful real estate development projects. In partnership with a team of like-minded construction professionals focused on providing maximum service and value to its clients, Matt continues to skillfully steer Catalyst on a path of expansive growth, inspired leadership, and exciting accomplishment.
