CALEB OBERG – CEO
My career in Roofing and Construction started when I was 20 yrs old. It all began in Colorado working for my uncle’s roofing company for about 3 months. The first-ever roof I worked on was still the most difficult roofing project, with 3 layers of cedar shingles that needed to be removed before to installing the new roofing system. Somehow this very physically tough and challenging type of work stuck with me, and every winter I took the initiative to learn more trades and more about the business side of things. Excellent work ethic and high standards have allowed me to be a good teacher, and mentor. To this day I get the most enjoyment teaching my staff and installers what it is we do best, “the customer experience”. I am blessed to be able to build a company in the industry I have spent most of my adult life working. I have been happily married for almost 8 years and a father of 4 with a growing family with 1 grandchild, and 1 more on the way. My family is my happy place. We love to be outdoors no matter what time of year it is. In the winter you find us sledding, snowboarding, ice fishing, & ice skating. The rest of the year we are involved with the kid’s sports, as well as golfing, softball, volleyball, and Oberg Family get-togethers, with Great Grandparents and all my siblings and the nieces & nephews. I also like to hunt just about anything I have time for. Recently I was able to get my first ever bear lottery tag and it was a successful hunt. When I’m not hunting you will find me out at the range and loading my own rounds. I love going to live events for music and anything with a motor, on a track or in the mud. My goals and vision for this industry are what drives me every day to keep up with the ever-changing landscape, while separating me from your typical construction business owner.

SAM HERSCHMAN – Business Office Manager
You may have heard me ask “How can we make your day better”. I get to hear a few things about you. Now it’s my turn to share a bit about myself. I have been in the construction industry for most of my adult life. But I have spread my wings over the last few years, learning the art of sales to HR and management. I am happy to be the new Business Operations Manager at Oberg Roofing. Some of my outside hobbies include reading a good book during our Minnesota Winters. And catching some sun rays in the Summer. But nothing tops being with my fur babies along with friends and family. Or planning my wedding. I am excited to be a key member of the team as we grow to unimaginable heights.
