'85
Blach, Mike
The Silicon Valley Business Journal named Mike Blach '85, president and CEO of Blach Construction, one of its first ‘Power Executives.’ The journal cited Blach’s successful leadership of the company, as well as his commitment to many community nonprofits, as reasons for his inclusion on its inaugural list of Silicon Valley’s most influential business leaders.
 
Blach, 53, is in excellent company. The list included Silicon Valley titans such as Tim Cook of Apple, Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, Sergey Brin and Larry Page of Google and Elon Musk of Tesla. 
 
Blach has led the San Jose-based general contracting firm Blach Construction for nearly three decades. Under his leadership, the company has thrived, builds several landmark projects every year and continues to be recognized with top state and national awards in safety, innovation, project execution and corporate philanthropy. Moreover, the Business Journal also has just named Blach Construction as one of the Best Places to Work for the eighth year in a row.
