Management Team

Gary Rogers

Gary Rogers

Before the conception of WoodStone Earth Construction Inc, in 2004, Gary had simple beginnings growing up on the family dairy farm. At the age of 19 he went to work for a local site work contractor where school was in session every day. Those 14 years from being a laborer to managing multiple multi-million dollar projects was a priceless experience. Starting WSE from nothing to transforming an idea into a formidable site contracting company in the Rochester area is nothing short of a miracle. Gary’s vast knowledge of projects from the very simple to the very complex has successfully allowed him to evolve and adapt to the ever-changing technology and requirements of the modern-day site contractor.
