“After meeting Missy, I knew she was the perfect person to lead CONEXPO-CON/AGG Radio in a new direction,” said Nicole Hallada, AEM vice president of marketing and communications. “Her passion, authenticity and willingness to help others resonates with her peers in the construction industry. I’m excited to have Missy kick off this new segment focused on contractor-led discussions about equipment, technology, business challenges and more.”

Scherber will lead discussions with construction company owners and operators and share their success stories, tips to make their business more profitable and much, much more. 

As the owner of T. Scherber Demolition and Excavating, and a social media influencer and construction professional,  Scherber is a passionate advocate for the construction industry. She is also an active member of several construction associations and community organizations in the greater-Minneapolis area.
