The company’s land development operations have been bolstered by the addition of Borushko. He has more than 30 years of industry experience, primarily focused on the planning, engineering, and development of large residential, commercial, and infrastructure projects across the western US. Borushko boasts deep expertise in strategic planning, operational management, business development, client relationship management, and program management.

In his new role as Borushko will focus on strategic growth, operational efficiency, and client relationship development in the Atwell’s western region. According to the firm, Borushko’s addition will allow it to “expand operations in the western region, enhance the firm’s land development experience, and continue to support clients across the country.”

Previously, Borushko spent 10 years at civil engineering firm David Evans and Associates as vice president and general manager of the 140-person land development business unit, where he was responsible for all aspects of the unit, including operations, service delivery, client relationship management, and profit and loss.

Before that, he was chief operations officer and vice president of development at Wilcox professional services from 2007-09, overseeing the operations of the firm’s land development, transportation, government, and industrials activities in the western US. He was also a founder and managing principal at real estate development consultancy MB Group, which operated for eight years before it was acquired by Wilcox.

“Mark’s background in operational leadership, along with his extensive management experience is very exciting to Atwell,” Brian Wenze, Atwell CEO, said. “Mark brings deep relationships in the industry with a long track record of leading teams, generating new business, and increasing profitability. He’s a great addition to our organization.”
