Linda Fletcher – President / CEO

Linda has been with Cook Paving and Construction since the days of Richard A. Rogers and Dave Cabbil. Over those 20-plus years, she has worked her way up the ladder by learning the operation from the inside out. Linda also added to her hands-on knowledge by taking college courses in related fields.

Prior to becoming President, Linda had secured and still manages Cook’s largest client. This experience has given her a unique perspective on how to continue Cook’s growth for the next 20 years. (Being a mother of 4 hasn’t hurt either!)

Her business philosophy is simple: “I stand by my word. Cook will always deliver what we promise. We are committed to our customers. A happy customer is a repeat customer – All of the time.

Keith Rogers – Executive Vice President

Keith grew up following the lead of his grandfather Richard Rogers, former owner and president of Cook. As he puts it, “up every day at 6, tape measure in hand, grabbing materials and doing some kind of project.” In construction all of his life, Keith got his formal start 20 years ago as a warehouse runner and worked his way up through the ranks. Keith has now been a part of the ownership team for more than 5 years.

“Linda and Mike believed in me and kept giving me bigger projects to handle. I take every day seriously, and thank God every day that my grandfather was able to leave the pathss he led for us to follow. I see Cook continuing to be a key player in this market for a long, long time and expanding into other markets as well. Our work speaks for itself.”

Michael (Mike) Alex – In Memoriam – Past Partner / Vice President

The passing of Mike Alex was an absolute shock to the entire Cook family. Michael had a long standing legacy in the construction industry that began with the Osterland Company, a heavy highway construction company. Michael had a passion for all things construction, especially when it came to equipment. As a lifelong member of the Local 18 Operator’s union, Mike could be found many times on the jobsite operating a piece of equipment to help the crew finish for the day. Mike was well liked and respected by all his construction colleagues, peers, customers, and employees. The Cook family continues to operate with his wisdom in our thoughts, his smile on our face, and his passion in our hearts.
