Jeremy Brown is the owner and president of Alliance Contracting. With nearly 20 years of experience in the construction industry, he oversees all aspects of the operations at Alliance Contracting.  His focus is on client relations and efforts to increase efficiencies while maintaining a high standard of quality.  On a typical day, he wears several hats: finance and business/ project development, qualifying subcontractors and reviewing and approving bids, contract negotiations and construction/ project management on larger projects.


Prior to forming Alliance Contracting, Jeremy was the head of construction administration and a project manager at an architecture and engineering firm in the Twin Cities, working with both public and private-sector clients nationwide. His overall success can be credited to his hands-on experience participating in both the design and construction of complex projects, the application of that experience, his organizational skills and attention to detail.


Jeremy is a member of the MN River Builders Association and the American Legion. He volunteers as a coach for youth hockey and served in the U.S. Military.


Jeremy lives in Elysian, MN with his wife and three children. Outside of work, he enjoys hunting, fishing, golfing, and hockey.





Jason Weinandt is a key member of the Alliance Contracting team. With nearly 15 years of experience in the construction industry, his understanding of what it takes to build, operate and maintain facilities in a most cost effective manner makes him a valuable addition to any project. He is our senior project manager leading not only his projects but also overseeing smaller projects being constructed by junior staff members.  He typically spends about half of his time in the office attending to administrative duties and planning upcoming work.  The other half of his time is spent on site ensuring the work is being completed per plans and specifications, on time, and in a safe and professional manner.  As a testament to Jason’s completion of numerous successful projects, not only do existing clients request our services on a sole source basis, but potential new clients call us with opportunities as a direct result of his reputation and attention to detail.


Prior to joining Alliance Contracting, Jason worked for a large privately held manufacturing company where he was responsible for construction on a global platform for projects ranging from medical packaging facilities to agricultural processing plants. He also has extensive experience with facilities assessments, mergers & acquisitions, plant relocations, and knowledge of standard safety requirements, procedures and practices.


Jason is a member of the St. Clair Fire Department, the St. Clair City Council, and the MN River Builders Association. He also volunteers for several non-profits in the area, including Tee It Up for the Troops and Wounded Warrior Guide Service.


Jason lives in St. Clair with his wife and two children. Outside of work, he enjoys sporting dogs, hunting, mountain biking, and spending time with his family.
