Meet The Team

Bruce Stageberg

Owner

Growing up in a home that was incredibly dedicated to education and career, Bruce developed an entrepreneurial spirit at a very young age. Over the years he was employed in a variety of industries which gave him diverse experiences as well as the opportunity to be mentored by several great and inspirational leaders. After working in the contracting business for close to a decade, Bruce founded Excel in the spring of 2020. From day one his goal has been to create an environment that allows his team to enjoy coming to work, have some fun, and deliver great results for their clients. In his off time, Bruce can be found running around the state with his wife and children racing dirt bikes. He also founded and works closely with the local mountain bike team, coaching around 30 kids each fall.
