North Wind Group Opens New Office in Guam

CIRI subsidiary North Wind Group’s new office in Guam was commemorated Feb. 7 with an open house and partner outreach, which included a traditional Chamorro blessing ceremony.

North Wind is committed to working in the Pacific Rim. With staff and offices in Alaska, Hawaii and now Guam, the company will continue to build and strengthen long-term relationships with subcontractors, vendors and teaming partners in the area. North Wind is actively involved in the Society of American Military Engineers, Guam Contractors Association and National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Guam.

“We are thrilled to have a permanent office presence in Guam,” said North Wind Group President and CEO Chris Leichtweis. “Our growing company has a very entrepreneurial spirit, and our core capabilities of environmental management, construction, facility operation, engineering and aviation services have helped us grow to over 1,250 employees with offices in 35 states and now this new territory.”

North Wind’s Guam office is located at 118 East Marine Corps Drive in the J&G Commercial Plaza. One of North Wind’s subsidiary 8(a) companies, Alaska-based Silver Mountain Construction, will also maintain a presence in the new office space.
