CHAD W. NELSON
CEO/Owner/President

Chad started in 1980 with a local asphalt paving contractor as a laborer in the field. In 1985 he graduated from Minnesota State – Mankato, with a Construction Management degree. Throughout his time working as a laborer and going to school, Chad worked and studied hard to make his way up the ranks and was able to become an Estimator/Project Manager at the same company from 1985 until 1994. After graduation, Chad was also able to complete the AGC Supervisory Training Program (STP).

It was in 1994 that Chad, along with four others, decided to start their own asphalt paving company. In February of 1995 the doors to Frattalone Paving Inc. were finally open with Chad as the company President/C.E.O. From 1995 to 2007, he and his partners created a multi-million-dollar company from the ground up. During this time, two of the original partners had retired, one had purchased his own company, Carl Bolander & Sons, and one regretfully had passed away. It was in 2007, Chad decided to purchase all outstanding shares of Frattalone Paving Inc. and rename it to what it is today, FPI Paving Contractors, Inc.

Chad was a board member of Minnesota Asphalt Pavement Association (MAPA) from 1998 to 2002 and in 2017 up to the present day he is a board member of the Teamsters Local 120. His many years of experience in the asphalt industry are put to use daily as he bids the majority of the high dollar jobs. The contacts he has developed through the years are an invaluable asset that gives FPI Paving Contractors, Inc. firsthand knowledge of changes and improvements in our industry.
