IMPACT Strategies was founded in 2002. Since then, the firm has steadily grown, becoming a leader in commercial construction management and development. The company has earned a reputation for not only being passionate about construction, but also for building relationships and developing a meaningful community in the areas in which they work.

“Throughout the years, IMPACT Strategies has contributed to the community through their work as well as various volunteer opportunities,” said Belleville Mayor Mark Eckert, who presented the award. “They have a history of developing deep trust and confidence from their clients. They value Belleville’s resources and their impeccable character has truly made a difference in our community.”

IMPACT Strategies has worked on some of Belleville’s most prominent buildings including City Hall, Belleville East High School, and the new Belleville Police Department Headquarters. Other local projects include the Belleville Crossing retail development and Hofbräuhaus St. Louis-Belleville.

Mark Hinrichs (shown), president of IMPACT Strategies said, “Every good company is made up of great people. This award, for which we are most grateful, truly is in recognition of the amazing professionalism and volunteer spirit of our entire staff. We thank the Chamber and City of Belleville for this honor.”

The awards were presented during the Chamber’s Annual Dinner and Silent Auction, held at the St. Clair County Event Center.
