Stacey Olson

Vice President Chevron

I worked with Mike in Sumatra Indonesia when I was the VP of Heavy Oil for Chevron. His contractor had a large contract with us to do a variety of construction jobs in Duri. Mike's leadership was critical in a very challenging work environment. His focus on working safety and to the highest standard was apparent every day. I would be happy to give a recommendation to anyone considering doing work with Mike. Stacey Olson

Jim Burg

Project Manager/Construction Manager, Chevron

I have known Mike Baig for several years. He was a Project Manager with Multi Structure, a construction services contractor to Chevron, in Indonesia (Sumatra). I was with Chevron as a Construction Manager for routine and capital projects, several which were handled by Multi Structure. Mike was a professional manager, engineer, planner, having innovative construction ideas to get the job done safely and productively to meet the client's deadlines. He was receptive to new ideas to increase safety and productivity and believed in holding himself and those in his workforce accountable in these areas. He will be a good asset for any company needing Project or Program Manager, including those with multiple concurrent projects, in the portfolio.

Christopher Houha

Chevron Retiree

Mike Baig and I worked together during my 4.5 years in Indonesia, he as the MultiStructure Operations Manager and me as the Chevron Contract Owner. During this time Mike's leadership resulted in significant volume of Civil and Mechanical construction work performed safely. Mike leveraged safety training, application of monitoring technology, and reinforced leadership to deliver near incident free performance. Mike and his team were active in our Contractor safety team. Mike always brought ingenuity to the job site providing workable alternatives to safely and efficiently deliver results. It was a pleasure working with Mike - and I appreciated the results he drove through his team.

Kazuo Nakanishi, Project Assurance Lead Fairfield Energy

I had an opportunity to work with Mike Baig on a Donggi Senoro LNG project from 2015 till 2017. We constructed a 12-kilometer-long highway which required major civil works and electrical works (large arch culvert, drains, guard rails, piling, rock breaking, soil errosion protection, power line installation, etc.).

Mike was with the contractor Multi Structure taking a leading role in all aspects of the construction, and me with the owner Donggi Senoro LNG as the contract owner. Mike's leadership resulted in a significant productivity improvement and the work performed safely. He was able to sort out all issues that were affecting this project; he coordinated each milestone for timely completion and worked with the local communities through open communications. He coordinated with the contract owner’s representatives routinely. Mike was always there when major work had to be performed day or night to ensure it was done right. It was a great opportunity and pleasure working with Mike, and I really appreciate the results he achieved through team work.

Michael Lovvorn

Project Construction Manager, Infineum (JV Shell & Exxon )

I worked with Mike Baig for more than two years when I managed capex projects for Chevron in Sumatra Indonesia and Mike managed our largest Sub Contractor Multi Structure. My projects were many and valued over 1 billion USD and Mike`s management of Multi Structure resources was absolutely excellent and never failed in support of Chevron projects. Mike is highly skilled and organized and many times provided innovative plans that kept our projects on schedule and always with the highest attention to Health and Safety. I would always welcome Mike Baig`s exceptional expertise and management to my team.
