Michael Ginalski named K12 Communication Liaison at Welliver

Welliver is proud to announce and welcome Michael Ginalski as the company’s Communication Liaison for K12 Education projects.

Ginalski will bridge the gap between Welliver’s construction management teams and K12 school district superintendents, school boards, and facility directors with the focus of reinforcing our presence across school districts in New York State and Northern Pennsylvania. He will provide expertise and guidance, as well as help districts carry out capital improvement initiatives involving pre-referendum voting, budget management, community outreach, and buildings and grounds personnel.

“We are thrilled Mike is joining our team. As a retired school superintendent and a former Welliver client, this is the right fit for him,” said Anne Welliver-Hartsing, President. “Mike will support our K12 clients by speaking their language and ensuring their specific project needs and expectations are communicated to their satisfaction.”

Ginalski is an accomplished leader in the K12 arena. He joins Welliver after 33 years working in the K12 education sector in various roles including Special Education teacher, Principal, and Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. He brings a comprehensive understanding and direct exposure to all of the issues facing public education today. In his 13 years as the Superintendent of Schools in the Corning-Painted Post Area School District, Ginalski led the district through four successful referendums which led to $260M in new construction from 2010-2020.

Ginalski has direct experience with all aspects of education in the 21st century, including the use of instructional technology, school safety practice and infrastructure, program development, community collaboration, and leveraging the media to build ongoing, consistent support for the school district.

“I look forward to applying lessons learned during my years performing in a high expectation environment, requiring tremendous commitment to communication and stakeholder involvement, and collaborating in all aspects of facilities planning and development to my role at Welliver,” said Mr. Ginalski. “I have had my hands in all areas of facilities planning including pre-referendum, facilities master planning, working with architects and construction management, and maximizing budgets and will bring that expertise to the table in working with administrators and school boards.”
