He began his career with a couple engineering degrees from Virginia Tech and then spent the next 10 yrs working his way up the operation ranks from an underground equipment operator, to all phases of production support. During next 20 yrs Mr. Bartkoski has started-up 2 new mining companies, and lead the rebuild of numerous others. His style is known to be aggressive, process oriented, value driven, and very employee empowering.
