Nathan joined the Veit family in 2007. Today, he is our vice president of foundations. In this role, he’s responsible for managing our foundation operations and overseeing project management and engineering. Nathan enjoys the challenges of foundation and retention construction due to the complexity of the projects and the ever-evolving industry.
He attended the University of Minnesota for undergraduate and graduate school, where he studied civil and geotechnical engineering. Before coming to Veit, Nathan worked as a professional engineer. He enjoys his job because he thrives off the challenge of solving difficult geotechnical problems and likes working in a dynamic workplace with a wide variety of services.
Nathan believes that Veit’s family-centered nature is what sets them apart from the competition. Veit isn’t afraid to take on challenges or complicated projects, which keeps him on his toes and evolving as a professional.
Some of Nathan’s favorite projects include large Department of Transportation projects, like the Highway 53 bridge in Virginia, Minnesota. He helped develop and deploy an innovative deep foundation system through some extremely difficult site conditions. Veit crews went on to successfully install the pile on schedule during the harsh winter of northern Minnesota.
Nathan and his wife keep busy outside of work with four elementary-aged children. His daughters are active in lacrosse, so he volunteers his time as director of rules, policy, and league operations for the state girls’ lacrosse association. He is also the director of the community’s youth girls’ lacrosse program.
