Board of Directors
Michael G. Scheurich's passion for construction originated with a love of architecture and how buildings are designed. He entered the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University with a vision to become an architect, quickly realizing he wanted to build. This led him to obtain his bachelor's degree in construction science from Texas A&M University. His construction career began in Dallas and continued in Houston, where he served for three of the world's top 20 general contractors. This was the incubation period for Scheurich's vision to launch his own construction company.
Scheurich understood that, to achieve this entrepreneurial dream, he needed more than a degree in the science of how to build. He also needed to understand the science of how to operate a company, so he obtained a master's degree in business administration from the University of St. Thomas in Houston. With an MBA in tow, he established Arch-Con Corporation in 2000 as a resource for the local commercial real estate community in the areas of office and industrial design-build construction. Today, the business also operates in the markets of retail, healthcare, corporate interiors, hospitality, multifamily and community construction. The company has offices in Houston, Dallas and Los Angeles with more than 180 employees and an annual revenue of more than $500 million.
Additionally, Scheurich utilizes his design and construction relationships to team with strategic partners to develop high-quality assets. Arch-Con's home office was developed by Scheurich in 2009 and work is now underway on a new office building development for Arch-Con near TC Jester Boulevard and Washington Boulevard in Houston. He is experienced in leveraging the latest, cost-efficient technologies and strives to stay on the cutting edge of the industry. He is currently securing a patent for an innovative construction technique.
Scheurich serves on the board of the Greater Houston Partnership, the National NAIOP Forum, the University of St. Thomas Buildings and Grounds Committee and the Annunciation Orthodox School Building and Grounds Committee. He recently served on the Wallis State Bank Board of Directors and served nine years on the Houston NAIOP Board of Directors and three years on the National NAIOP Board of Directors. He donates his time and resources to vital organizations including SEARCH Homeless Services, Bo's Place, Hermann Park Conservancy, St. Anne Catholic Community, Christian Community Services Center and Houston Area Women's Center, among others.
