Bergland brings established industry-wide relationships with wind power project developers, engineering consultants, subcontractors and suppliers. He also has critical experience working with a wide variety of wind turbine manufacturers, such as Vestas, Siemens, GE, Clipper, and Mitsubishi.

In his most recent position as the director of business development, Bergland led Mortenson Construction's market and customer strategic positioning for their wind power engineering, procurement and construction business.
