With over 23 years of experience in financial management in the construction industry, Michelle Baer leads all the financial and technological areas at WPI. She guides the Accounting, Information Technology, Business Services, Human Resources, Risk Management, and Safety departments at our Corporate Headquarters in Portland, Oregon. Michelle is a member of the OSCPA and CFMA and has recently been appointed as a Board Member of AWCI Cares.
Michelle is described by her peers as, “dedicated, hardworking, detailed and diligent.” Michelle’s work ethic was shaped by her father, who was fond of reminding her, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Like everyone else on the Senior Management Team at WPI, Michelle is not afraid of hard work.
When not at WPI, Michelle enjoys tending to her rose garden and spending time with her family and friends. Her ideal vacation will take her to Italy and will include a tour of Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica.
