Osten’s experience to bolster strong Boldt position in energy markets

The Boldt Company announces the addition of Mark Osten to its power and energy business development team as senior director of business development. Osten will draw on his extensive energy market experience while working with Boldt’s power and energy team to pursue strategic opportunities across all Boldt regions. Osten is based out of Boldt’s Madison, WI, office.

Boldt has developed a strong presence as a construction services provider for the power industry across many disciplines including gas generation, coal generation, environmental retrofits, hydroelectric, wind and biomass cogeneration, as well as power plant maintenance services. The addition of Osten to Boldt’s power and energy team will help the firm continue to grow its customer base and help its current and future clients reach their goals through innovative solutions and value-based project delivery.

“It takes more than an average construction company to maneuver through the complicated power and energy industry,” said Osten. “Boldt’s experience with all aspects of this multi-faceted business positions it well to serve its existing clients and expand within the market during this very exciting time—I’m looking forward to contributing to that success.”

Prior to his position at Boldt, Osten led business development efforts at RMT in Madison, WI, where he gained a broad experience in power and energy markets—particularly in renewables, including company building projects totaling almost 5,000 MW of renewable energy. Throughout his 30-year career, he has spent significant time in energy site development, project management, design-build, hydrogeological studies and energy exploration for projects across the U.S. at companies including RMT, Mirant Corporation, Warzyn, Inc. and Enserch Exploration.

“I’ve always been impressed with Boldt’s people and culture,” said Osten. “The company is committed to solid relationships with its customers, service and quality—and I’m very happy to be part of the team.”

Osten holds a bachelor’s degree in geology from the University of Wisconsin – Parkside and a master’s degree in geology from Kent State University. He is also a registered professional geologist and hydrologist in several states.
