The Legacy of Leadership at Neumann Companies

Mark Neumann

Mark started his first business in 1979 in the area of real estate sales. By 1986 that same company started building homes and grew to be one of the fastest growing businesses in America, building about 120 homes annually. In the 90s, Mark left the business world to serve in the United States House of Representatives from 1995-1999, elected to serve Wisconsin's First District. After four successful years of service in US Congress, and with a balanced national budget, he returned to the business world with an increased knowledge of the many macroeconomic issues facing successful growth of American business.

Mark's core philosophy in business is market driven environmental stewardship, which is echoed throughout multiple entrepreneurial companies. After Congress, Mark started a land development company whose motto was developing land in harmony with nature, setting aside one acre of permanent open space for each acre that was developed.

Mark and Sue Neumann have 3 children, and 7 grandchildren and have lived in SE WI their entire lives. Matt and Amy Neumann have 4 children, and also have lived in SE WI their entire lives. We remain committed to faith, family, and country in all we do.

Matt Neumann

Matt joined his father in business in 2004 after graduating from Wisconsin Lutheran College, with a degree in Business Economics and a MBA from Marquette. Matt brought a revitalization and energy to their companies that led to building all new homes to Energy StarTM and Green BuiltTM standards. The company went from developing and building about 75 homes in three counties, to now building over 150 homes a year in eight counties.

Neumann Companies is recognized as a leader in the green building and conservation development industry in the State of Wisconsin, ultimately leading them to offer renewable energy on new homes, and build Wisconsin's first Energy Producing Home. It was this process that lead to the creation of SunVest Solar, Inc. The company was created to sell, market, and finance solar arrays, renewing America's future through the implementation of clean energy. Today SunVest has systems in four states and is expanding to new markets each year.

Good Works. Great Impact.

For Matt Neumann, and his father Mark Neumann, community commitment extends far beyond business. Both have devoted significant time and resources to the communities in Wisconsin where they have spent their entire lives. On a professional level, Neumann Companies has donated to area communities for park and open space improvements. On a personal level, both men are actively involved in their churches, and donate privately to multiple Christian organizations locally, nationally and internationally.

Mark Neumann is also a co-founder of Educational Enterprises, Inc.

The group's mission is to inspire, equip and support serving leaders to leave a positive imprint on the world.
