Justin Schmitz

Equipment & Shop Manager

Office: Fond du Lac, WI

Experience: A native to the Fond du Lac area, Justin managed a local lawncare/landscape business for seven years, prior to managing the lawncare division at Commonwealth for four years. Stepping away from that role, he took on a different position in the automotive industry, where he spent three years as a sales representative.

Commonwealth is: like a second family to me…I worked for Commonwealth for many years, took some time away to follow another passion with the automotive industry, but eventually came back to the place and people I truly enjoy working for!

Commonwealth has been extremely professional and courteous to the staff and the residents still living in our facility. They exceeded our expectations during the construction project as well as during the renovation of a 1923 school. Both projects have turned out to be beautiful and successful for our community.
