Mark Kemp

Inducted 2020

I would like to nominate my father, Mark Kemp, and ask that he be considered for the nomination into the Mason Contractors Hall of Fame.

My Dad has been serving the masonry and concrete industry for the past 50 plus years. From starting at the bottom laboring in the fields, to running a successful company he has demonstrated his dedication, work ethic, and love for the masonry industry. Superior Masonry Builders has been very successful and well respected in the Wisconsin area.

Mark Kemp

Mark's success stems from his hard work. He has always worked grueling hours trying to better himself, his company, and the industry. His proactive stance in trying to find solutions and promote the industry has helped so many. He has served on many boards and committees such as the Wisconsin Masonry Association, Mason Contractors Association of Milwaukee and the IMI. Mark was the State Chairman for Wisconsin, Region D Regional VP, the union committee chairman and has held all of the executive offices for the Mason Contractors Association of America and finished his tenure as Chairman in 2016. He was instrumental in the start up of the Masonry Foundation and finished his tenure as Chairman in 2019. He traveled across the US anytime there was someone to talk to about the Foundation. Mark is also the largest single donor to the Foundation. Mark has always donated not only his time and money but has also given great effort into making the masonry industry better for those who follow.

In Wisconsin, Mark serves on many committees and boards for apprenticeship, safety, bargaining, labor management, and funding of college/high school promotional classes. He has set up masonry programs, and instituted funding to help enlighten future architects and engineers.

My Dad has taught me many important lessons in our business, from being prepared for the unexpected to showing me the importance of knowing all the employees (you are only as good as your employees). Most important, my Dad taught me to put others before myself. He has shown me through example how one should act and treat people. He has been the greatest role model and greatest warrior for the masonry industry, but more importantly for those less fortunate.

Mark is a 5th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and serves as an advisor to the City Youth Martial Arts program in Milwaukee. This program helps provide a safe and positive experience for children who are less fortunate. Another important priority for my Dad has been to set up a family foundation, so he can help others in need. Both show that he truly loves to put others first.

His success and positive attitude are also carried out in his personal life. Our family has always been his priority, and he has taught my sisters and I many valuable life lessons, which has helped us to become better people. I feel confident that you will agree that Mark Kemp is a deserving candidate for this award. Please feel free to contact me for any additional information you may require.
