Mike Coronado, WestCor’s Founder, Past President, and CEO of WestCor Companies
Mike Coronado entered the construction industry after graduating from Glendale High School in Arizona. Accepting a sales position at a local lumber company, Mike sold construction materials to major framing contractors. One of those framing contractors offered him a position as an estimator preparing bids, budgets, purchasing materials and managing costs for framing jobs. Impressed with his performance, Mike’s employer invited him to head up their new division in Las Vegas as they expanded their framing operations. After achieving success in that endeavor, Mike partnered with Jim and Pam Hammer of Westar Development in 1989 to form a new framing company. The new Westar/Coronado partnership became WestCor Construction.
In 2003, opportunity knocked again, when they created C & H Concrete LLC. By the end of that year C & H Concrete began operating under the trade name Coronado Concrete and in 2005, Mike started Coronado Masonry. The two operations merged in 2009 and quickly became a major specialty trade contractor throughout Southern Nevada.
In 2009, to better reflect the nature of the business, WestCor Construction began operating under the trade name WestCor Framing. Mike’s competent and aggressive leadership consistently expressed itself in hundreds of successful projects ranging from single family and multi-family housing to large commercial and industrial projects.
In 2011, Mike spun off various administrative departments into a separate administrative services company known as WestCor Companies LLC (and sometimes referred to informally as “WestCor Holdings”.) One of Mike’s newest ventures is ACMP Services which provides quality material placement services for contractors throughout Southern Nevada.
Sadly, on December 9, 2021, our beloved founder, Michael Coronado passed away. Mike was a friend and mentor to all of us at WestCor Companies. He built a company culture based on quality, safety, and reliability and he was committed and engaged with clients, employees, and the community at large. In his honor, the leadership team at WestCor Companies continues to uphold the standards which he built the companies on as they continue his legacy for and on behalf of his wife Becky and children Dason, Kagen, McKenna, and Kanden.
