CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Scott Bleich is the CEO of Heartland Companies (formerly Heartland Finishes, Heartland Door & Frame, and Heartland Window Treatments). His immersion into the commercial construction industry and lifelong passion began in 1995 working as an inside salesperson for United Building Centers. After expanding his experience and knowledge in the industry as a project manager/estimator for Pro Wall Construction and later Olympic Wall Systems, he established Heartland Finishes with his two business partners in 2002. 18 years later, Heartland Companies has grown into three divisions and is one of the most respected finishing contractors in the commercial construction industry.
Scott Bleich has held numerous board and committee positions for industry specific organizations and non-profits throughout his life and career. He currently sits on the board for Master Builders of Iowa MBI-WORKS and Ames Economic Development. He serves on committees for United Way of Story County, is also a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization(YPO), and a member of the Ames Rotary. Most recently, he has joined as a member of the American Heart Association’s executive leadership team.
His favorite pastime is being with his beautiful family: wife Angie, daughters Sophia and Alexis, and son Logan. In personal life, God and family are his number one priority with the Iowa Hawkeyes and fly fishing coming in at a close second. When it comes to Heartland Companies, the employees, and the culture the company curates, he will be the first one to reinforce a very similar sentiment: it’s all about family…family forever. He ensures every member of the Heartland family respects and appreciates the skillset and knowledge everyone brings to the table while finding every opportunity to grow as part of a team that embraces the most cutting-edge innovative services and products in the industry.
