Executive Team



Alan Zirkelbach, Chief Executive Officer of Zirkelbach Construction, Inc., has an extensive 19-year background in manufacturing. Having hired and managed thousands of employees, developed and managed complex budgets and financial models, he has successfully implemented new projects and products from research and development, patent and legal protection, to manufacturing and distribution. Alan gives Zirkelbach Construction a uniqueness and professionalism not often found or duplicated in the construction industry.

An important aspect of Alan’s experience includes the design and construction or modification of manufacturing facilities, multi-story office buildings, high tech medical facilities, restaurants and numerous other commercial projects. Alan holds a Florida General Contractor’s License. He currently serves as Chairman of the Board for the Gulf Coast Builders Exchange. He is a member of Palmetto Community Redevelopment Authority, the Palmetto Planning and Zoning Board, and a member of C12, Christian Business Academy, since 1998.

Alan and Zirkelbach Construction have actively been involved with the Manatee Chamber of Commerce, the Manatee Economic Development Council, Leadership Manatee, and the Manatee County Schools Foundation since the early 1990s.

Alan works to promote technical education because of its importance in the entire business community. All industries are suffering from a lack of skilled technical labor. More than 75 percent of the students who graduate from the local public education system will not graduate with a full college degree. Yet, many parents continue to view a four-year college degree as the ONLY path to success. Parents must be educated that there are many good-paying and fulfilling careers and jobs that come as a result of attending a technical education center. And, these students are leaving the technical education centers with considerably less debt than the tens of thousands of dollars of debt that many students attending a community college or university accumulate, often taking them decades to pay-off.
