Schomaker has been building relationships and generating business in the commercial building industry throughout the Metro East for more than 30 years. He also serves as the mayor of Albers, IL. Schomaker started in commercial construction with Poettker Construction, working in business development from 1986 to 2004. He then worked at Columbia, IL-based GRS Construction for 12 years until the owner’s retirement. A close friend of Schomaker’s told Holland CEO, Bruce Holland, that Schomaker was looking to continue building commercial building relationships. It wasn’t long before Holland offered Schomaker the opportunity to work for him. “I’m thrilled to be working as part of the Holland team,” said Schomaker. “Holland is built on integrity and they’re the nicest people I’ve ever met. In the construction business, it’s all about integrity and relationships, trying to help people acknowledge and realize hopes and dreams. Holland is not just there to build a building for clients. Holland is there to build long-term relationships that are built with honesty and integrity. I look forward to sharing the contacts I’ve cultivated over the past 30 years.” Holland said Schomaker’s down-to-earth, genuine work ethic pairs well with the company’s values and mission. “We’re open for business doing smaller projects,” Holland said. “Smaller projects are managed in a different way. The numbers are different and the process is different. We’ll do almost anything for our clients, and we welcome the job no matter the size. Steve Schomaker’s many longstanding relationships with companies and individuals across the region will benefit us greatly. We welcome the opportunity to work with him.” Schomaker is a native of Albers and a graduate of Mater Dei High School in Breese and Kaskaskia College in Centralia. He has been married to Debbie Schomaker for 33 years; the couple has a son, Cole, who is a public school teacher in Mascoutah.
