Mike Halstead

Chief Financial Officer

Outside of company founder Craig Hansen; Mike has perhaps one of the longest running ties to The Hansen Company as anyone here.  Mike’s dad Chris was a longtime superintendent for The Hansen Company for over 25 years and Mike spent many weekends tagging along with him to numerous jobsites.  It’s fair to say that construction has been in Mike’s blood since childhood, so it was no surprise that his career led him to the construction industry.

With a relentless work ethic from a young age, Mike has always stayed busy.  Growing up he worked in various industries including retail, bartending, and even many years as a volunteer firefighter.  After graduating high school in Ankeny, he attended Iowa State University where he obtained a double major in Accounting and Finance and a minor in Management.  After college, Mike went on to earn his Certified Public Accountant designation.  He began his career in the insurance and public accounting sectors before joining The Hansen Company as Controller in 2012.  As the company grew and Mike’s experience grew right along with it, he elevated to the role of Chief Financial Officer.  Today Mike oversees all finance, insurance, bonding, risk management, strategic planning and general office functions.

When Mike isn’t working; he lives a busy, fun-filled life.  Mike and his wife Megan have two dogs, Boone, the loveable 130 pound English Mastiff, and Lulita, a precarious, sweet “rescue mutt”.   When they’re not cuddling (or wrestling) with their dogs, they enjoy traveling and experiencing new adventures.  Mike and Megan love to snowboard in the Canadian Rockies and they off-road with their Jeep, affectionately dubbed “Princess Consuela Bananahammock”, in the mountains of Colorado.  Keeping up with Mike isn’t easy.  He’s always been an avid fitness and nutrition enthusiast and in 2019, he obtained the designation of CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.  Mike can not only crunch the numbers but he can crunch the abs too!
