Rusty McDonald

President

When Rusty first entered into the asphalt industry in 1995, he saw an opportunity to meet a need for other businesses by providing all services for building and maintaining parking lots while making the execution of each project as simple and as painless as possible. His entrepreneurial spirit drives the vision of the company, but it’s his commitment to reliability and trustworthiness that determines the ultimate measurement of AMI’s success.

Estimating

After retiring from the NFL and receiving his business degree, Finn joined AMI as a Site Analyst.  His "win" mentality is evident in his progression through the estimating department.  Upon arrival, Finn quickly mastered the SA role, then the estimating assistant role, and is now the lead estimator.  The best thing about Finn is that he not only wants to win for himself, he wants to win for AMI, and he wants to win for our customers.
