Mike Carpenter

Construction Project Manager

A Minnesota native, Mike has lived on the Canadian border, the southern farmlands, and has spent most of his life in the lakes and trees of north central Minnesota.  No matter the location, Mike could be found on a bike in all stages of his life. Mike, his wife, and their two sons discovered their passion for mountain biking on the trail system that Rock Solid built in Cuyuna, MN. This is also where Mike and his friends helped found a non-profit youth development organization dedicated to getting kids active in the outdoors, www.rydemn.org. He vacationed in Bentonville in 2019, then relocated with his family to NWA in 2022. Besides mountain biking, Mike and family also share a passion for downhill skiing, fishing, hunting and any other outdoor activity.

Mike joined the Rock Solid team as Project Manager in 2023, bringing with him more than 20 years of construction project management experience ranging from commercial construction to the design and build of large industrial plants across the Midwest. Mike earned his Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Mankato State University, and a Masters in Business Administration from Southwest Minnesota State.

Lives change when on a bike, let’s go for a rip!
