Mike Chyzowski spent 28 years with Quorex with several of those years as a partner and the President of the firm. Under his leadership, the company flourished and is known to be one of Saskatchewan’s foremost and largest general contractors with offices in both Saskatoon and Regina. 
 
Mike served on the Merit Board from 2005 to 2016. With a background in finance, he took an active role in ensuring the financial sustainability of Merit. He served on the executive as secretary-treasurer for several years, and always took that responsibility seriously. He was never afraid to voice his concern about an issue or stand up for hard-working tradespeople in the construction industry. Mike is a steady and wise voice of reason in the room. If he disagrees with what you’ve said, then you should likely think a little harder about what you’ve just said.
 
Mike was very passionate about open shop contracting and how important it is to the growth and viability of Saskatchewan’s construction industry. He was always fully engaged in our advocacy efforts and would even take it on himself to meet with his local MLA to further advocate for issues affecting Saskatchewan contractors.
 
Under Mike’s leadership, Quorex is known for its contributions to both industry and community. For example, as general contractors for the Ronald McDonald house, they leveraged their connections to secure significant donations that reduced the overall cost to build the new facility. That same generosity applies to Merit events, as they have been ardent supporters in many ways of the Merit awards and other various events through sponsorship and providing their staff to help Merit with various aspects of our events. Congratulations Mike, for being awarded the 2018 MERIT Legacy Award!
