It is with great honor that we announce our very own BizTimes Notable Veteran Executive – Kalib Hrbacek (Chief Estimator).


“His skillset is continuously improving the company’s service offerings, and he brings a positive and hardworking attitude every day.  For this, we salute him! Congratulations on your very deserving achievement!”

– Scott Drees, President & CEO – Altius Building Company


As a U.S. Army Veteran, Kalib Hrbacek is a leader within the construction industry with 16 years of experience and eight years of dedicated service to this country. During his time as a Sergeant, he earned seven awards for his achievements and completed a tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2013. He is a leader/mentor to Veterans through his support as the Vice President of the Nam Knights Brew City Chapter, a non-profit Veteran and Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, which aids Veterans in need. Kalib is also a leadership board member for the Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce, who’s main mission it is to improve the business climate for Veterans. He has also started in inaugural Holiday Drive at Altius for the sole purpose of supporting the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from UW-Whitewater and has since grown his career starting as a Field Engineer to his most recent promotion to Chief Estimator.  Kalib’s experience as a Foreman, Field Engineer, and Project Manager lends him valuable insight into the building process, making him an extremely effective estimator and great asset on any project.


“Comparing my military service to my civilian occupation, it is easy to see how the Army set me up for success in a leadership role. Accountability, leadership, transparency, and candor are all tools I have kept and refined as I moved back into construction. It has also prepared me to lead a team that focuses on project execution and deliverables while dialing in on the “mission critical checkpoints.” As an estimating leader, I use these traits to build projects that reflect that team-driven work ethic, and lead our clients clearly, and directly, from beginning to end.”

– Kalib Hrbacek, Chief Estimator – Altius Building Company
