Wish Mark Liudzius A Happy Retirement

It is with mixed emotions as we wish long-time Vancouver Island Construction Association (VICA) Member and Kinetic Construction Ltd. (Kinetic) Executive Mark Liudzius a happy retirement. Over his 40-year career in construction, and 25 years spent at Kinetic, Mark played a pivotal role in establishing Kinetic as one of the largest construction firms on Vancouver Island.

Joining Kinetic in 1988 as a carpenter, Liudzius advanced through several positions, ultimately moving to Branch Manager then Director of Operations. Additionally, Mark sat as Board Chair of Kinetic for four years, retiring as Executive Vice President.

 “Some people just add to culture by being who they are.  No evidence is more compelling than the many people who love Mark and we will have to make conscious efforts to provide what he brought naturally every day,” said Tom Plumb, President & CEO of Kinetic.

As someone who’s dedicated nearly their entire life to construction, Mark is grateful for the opportunities afforded to him throughout his career. “The opportunities that a career in construction can provide are huge – it is easy to get into at entry level, but it also provides opportunity for many types of professionals,” said Mark. “This industry provides amazing potential for progressing your career, and it is global and transferable. Advances in technology and process are bringing this industry into new era.”

VICA is grateful for the time Mark spent on our Board of Directors, carrying on a longstanding tradition of Kinetic representation on the VICA Board.  

“Mark always considered the entirety of the VICA Membership during his time on the VICA Board of Directors,” explained VICA CEO Rory Kulmala. “His veteran leadership and extensive experience in construction ensured all members of our association were represented at the board table, continuously pushing to enhance the value of their membership.”

During his time on the VICA Board, Mark oversaw the implementation and expansion of several key initiatives, including VICA’s Construct Your Future youth employment program as well as their Tailgate Toolkit Harm Reduction Project.

On behalf of the VICA Board of Directors, its members, and staff, we wish Mark, his wife Lisa, and the rest of Mark’s family all the best as they move into the next chapter of their lives.
