In his new role, Amshey will oversee the project management department, and field operations, including personnel resources, project planning and logistics, and program management, for projects ranging from $200,000 to $95 million.

Previously the firm’s Lead Project Manager, Amshey replaces Bill Ogden, who retired in December after 40 years with O-A-K.

“I am honored that the Board selected me to serve in this role,” said Amshey, “working closely with Bill Ogden for years I’ve learned what it takes to be successful in an ever-changing industry. We have a great group of people here at O-A-K and I’m eager to see what the future holds.”

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management from Ferris State University, where he graduated with Cum Laude honors. He also holds an Associate of Arts in Architectural Graphics from Grand Rapids Community College.

He joined the O-A-K team in 2008 as a Project Superintendent, overseeing commercial construction projects in the field. In 2009, Jeremy transitioned into his role as Project Manager where he specialized almost exclusively in multi-bid package educational and community-driven projects.

Amshey also serves as a Board member for the Rockford Education Foundation and a Mentor for Grand Rapids Public Schools Academy for Design and Construction.
