Growing Up in Portland, Maine, Kirk graduated from Cheverus High School and the University of Maine with a BS in Business. After graduating, Kirk worked for a commercial general contractor in Massachusetts and Maine before starting MW Hoss.
While most kids would go to the beach or sports camp during the school summers, you could find Matt with his tool belt on building houses with his Dad. After graduating from University of Maine with a BS in Engineering and Construction Management, he spent 10 years working in the commercial construction industry before starting MW Hoss.
My name is Chad. I graduated from the UMaine with a BS in Construction Management/AS in Civil Engineering Technology. I have been working in the commercial construction industry since graduating from UMaine in 1998. I have spent the majority of my career working in project management but have also spent time working in estimating, purchasing/procurement, and preconstruction roles. I have worked on projects in all six New England states among other projects outside of New England. I worked for a few larger construction firms in Washington D.C./Massachusetts right after college before re-finding my Maine roots and moving back in 2004. I worked with both Matt and Kirk previously at other local construction firms before deciding to join the MW Hoss Team at the end of 2020. I enjoy spending time with friends and family as well as working/playing outdoors when time allows.
My name is Darlene and I’m the Business/Operations Manager at MW Hoss Construction. I had previously worked with Kirk, Matt, and Chad so I was excited for the opportunity to work with them again. During and after college, I worked for Architects and Engineers, and it wasn’t until I was placed on a project site that I realized how much more I’d enjoy that side of design and construction. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, Wade, as well as family and friends, reading, hiking, traveling, and exploring Maine and New Hampshire on the back of a motorcycle.
My name is Colin and I was born and raised in Detroit Michigan. I grew up coming to Maine every summer and knew from a young age that it would one day be my home. I’ve now lived in Maine for 15 years and have worked in the trades since my arrival. M.W. Hoss is a solid company to find yourself in if you value good people and creating an honest product. My passions out side of work are in creating music and acting in a story telling improv group called “Portland Playback.”

Hey my name is Dylan, In 2018 I joined M.W. Hoss Construction with several years of construction and landscape installation experience. My admiration for the creativity and craftsmanship in residential and landscape construction attracted me to this profession as a teenager. When I’m not working, I enjoy boating around Casco Bay, surfing along the coast of Maine and playing the guitar. I live in Westbrook with my wife Allison, son Calvin, and cat Bean.
Hey I’m Luke but everyone around here calls me Bennett. I grew up in Gorham Maine and I’ve been around the trades for as long as I can remember. I tested out a few trades until I took a job offer to work for a builder and after I helped frame a home for them I knew I was hooked. Nothing beats working with wood! When I’m not doing carpentry I’m usually out on a motocross track somewhere in Maine.
Hey my name is Jeff, I grew up in Freeport Maine, and I’ve lived in Colorado and California but nothin’ beats Maine!

Hi there, I’m Thomas! After graduating from UMaine, I started working with a local builder in Portland and fell in love with the trade. Carpentry requires creativity when problem solving and I enjoy the challenges it brings day to day. When not swinging a hammer, I’m spending time with friends and family or aground somehwhere in Casco Bay, waiting for the tide to come in.

I started working in the commercial construction industry after college in both Maine & Massachusetts. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my dog Cannoli & wife Jess, being with friends & family, golfing, running and being at the lake.
From a young age, I have always had opportunities to work with my hands, due in part to my family’s rental buildings and boat building business. I have always had the values of self reliance instilled in me. I have worked for seven years in commercial maintenance for a large Maine based company. I’m excited to bring my skill set to MW Hoss as well as to learn new skills. When I’m not at work, you will most likely find me spending time with my wife and son, tinkering on all sorts of varied projects, or working in our garden.
My name is Ryan. I am originally from Connecticut, but Maine put me on the right path with great mountains and good times year-round.

My name is John Kane. After working in construction around Boston for about 9 years, I moved to Maine in 2021 to be closer to the mountains. I am an avid skier in the winter and a mediocre mountain biker in the summer. I enjoy carpentry because I find building things to be very rewarding. I started building guitars as a hobby during quarantine and that has quickly turned into one of my greatest passions.

Howdy, I’m Pele. Swinging a hammer as a young kid sparked a lifelong passion to create and build. I’ve been in the trades for over a decade. Although most of that time was in carpentry, I took a few years to explore different parts of the industry. This included hardscape/landscape construction, getting my certification in dry stacked stone walling, excavation, and solar installation. I’m thrilled to be on the MW Hoss team doing what I love! In my free time, you can find me exploring the beautiful state of Maine with my dog Toast or playing Irish music.

Out of college I worked in Industrial/Specialty Construction for a few years as a Project Engineer and then moved into residential construction working as a Superintendent/Project Manager performing insurance claim work and renovations. For the last 9-1/2 years I have worked in heavy industrial construction acting on behalf of owners as a Project Engineer, Project Manager and Construction Manager for all types of industry ranging from food products to forest products.
