Business Builders

Elling Olson

Director of Business Development and Marketing

Elling has always been inspired to do something good for society and people in general. This led to a career path in construction, providing safe buildings and structures for the community. He soon realized he wanted to make a bigger impact. This led to his expansion into the renewable energy market. He began working with key stakeholders to ensure renewable energy power plants were built smart, reliable, and with respect to the environmental footprint they impacted. His contribution to saving the planet!

With a start in the construction industry, Elling worked in retail, commercial construction, redevelopment in urban areas, historical preservation, and for the last ten years, the renewable energy power sectors. He has directly or indirectly supported the construction of 100 utility-scale wind power plants throughout North America. Something he is proud to have accomplished.

Growing up in northern Minnesota, Elling developed a love for the outdoors and adventures such as camping, fishing, hunting, and ATV riding which he now shares with his two sons. With a love for helping others and surrounding himself with positive people, he serves as a board member for Hearts & Hammers, a local non-profit. He also makes time to coach and mentor young teens that are in need of support and direction in their lives.

Professional Qualifications:

•  BA, Sports Business Management and Administration,       Bemidji State University, 1991

Elling Olson

I enjoy working with others who align with my values and passion to excel at whatever they do. Specifically, I enjoy the enthusiasm my Sambatek team members and customers have for doing their best. I love exceeding customer expectations, improving processes that make things easier for everyone involved to be more effective at what they do, and in turn have a healthy work/live balance."
