“Our customers will tell you that we truly exemplify this concept. We won't make transactions uncomfortable, we're not going to needle you with change orders, and we stand behind our word. We own up to our mistakes and learn from them. If our product shows up on your site with imperfections, you'll never hear excuses. Instead you'll experience an earnest push to make sure its taken care of. We don't do business with robotic "If-then" algorithmic transactions and "policies" that nobody understands but blindly follows. Our employees are given the freedom to be in tune with the customer, and take care of their needs. Simple things like understanding why we're doing something are important to us so we can bring real value. ”- Reilly Sasse, President/CEO
It's more than just being a good place to work. We want to be the best company in the country to work for. Awesome people are the driving force of all that we do, so we do everything we can to make working at Red River an incredible experience.
Reilly Sasse, CEO
Hard charging ahead, Reilly is always on the hunt for the next opportunity. His high energy and optimism, keeps the team together and pushing ahead. When the going gets tough, you often hear him say with a big grin, “don’t threaten me with a good time”. Reilly reminds us often that “whether you tell yourself you can or you tell yourself you can’t, you are correct”. He loves America and proudly displays his country’s flag. He survives on coffee and ribeye’s and spends most of his free time straddled atop his horse or teaching his boys how to shoot.
Marshall Sasse, VP/COO
Marshall is the meat grinder. He keeps us on the rails. Process oriented and always planning, he builds systems and processes that keep Red River running. He’s always pushing for continuous improvement and understands things at the micro level. When a problem arises, he latches on like a junk yard dog until it’s fixed. He’s got a gift for making decisions with the long term in mind and can always figure out what the rest of the story is.
Torin Wirtanen, Operations
Built from hard knocks, works like a mule, loves people and seeing them succeed. He relentlessly pushes our team to perform and he doesn’t have time for excuses. He’ll work 30 hours straight and wonder why everyone is tired. He seems to be everywhere at once and its tough to get him to take a vacation except when its time to go hunting. Takes a lot of pride in what we do and wants every project to go out the door perfect.
Our clients range from international publicly held entities to startups. We work with dynamic, forward thinking people who are working to build America's future. Most of our work is negotiated, proprietary or confidential projects where we are involved from design stage to start up. Once we become part of a team, we lean in to whatever challenges are encountered, demonstrate accountability and relentless execution.
Compliance isn’t enough at Red River; we've created a culture where every employee takes ownership over their safety and professionalism. Our company values each employee's commitment to be the best in the field, so in return, we invest a great deal of time, money and effort in continuing education for our team members. We hold regular training sessions and promote a mentor culture where we are constantly building each others skills and abilities. Not only does this create a safer atmosphere on the jobsite, it promotes a more efficient workplace and brings more value to our clients.
