The Atkins Group “TAG” is happy to welcome two new staff members to their team. On January 6, Jared Ernst started his new role as Project Manager with our Commercial/Industrial Division.

As Project Manager, Ernst will be responsible for overall project planning, scheduling, management, and close out of a wide range of development, remodeling, maintenance, and construction projects. He assumes day-to-day responsibilities for all new construction and tenant improvements. He also supervises all major capital repairs and renovations of existing properties in the TAG portfolio. For both new and existing clients, Ernst will be the main point of contact for all construction related tasks from design through project close out and commissioning.

Ernst received his Bachelors of Science in Construction Management from Illinois State University and has had experience in the food production industry. “I’ve always known about TAG and their impact in the area. You see their signs everywhere,” said Ernst. “I’m looking forward to new adventures with a great company.”

Jared is a life-long Mahomet resident with his wife Katie and their young daughter, Mckinley. He serves as a volunteer fire fighter and EMR with the Cornbelt Fire Protection District, and is active with his community. His experience, as well as his interpersonal and technical skills will make him a valuable new asset to our Commercial/Industrial team.

Welcome Jared!
