Ed. note: Each week, we’re highlighting one of the winners from Crane & Hoist Canada‘s 2021 Top 10 Under 40 contest. 

We’re the halfway mark on our winner’s list this week. We’re excited to introduce you to Justin Brodziak, branch manager for Sterling Crane in Edmonton, Alta.

“As a second-generation crane operator, Justin knows his way around the crane industry,” says Mike DeRocco, vice-president of marketing, sales and business development at Sterling Crane, a Marmon Crane Services/Berkshire Hathaway company. “Since joining the Sterling Crane Canada team, he has quickly demonstrated exceptional operational and leadership skills.”

In his role as Sterling Crane’s branch manager for Saskatchewan and Alberta, Brodziak manages a large fleet of cranes as well as multi-million-dollar maintenance and capital projects for high-profile clients such as North West Water and Dow Chemical.


“Justin’s passion for excellence, along with a keen eye for detail, has resulted in outstanding safety records for his crews, as well as numerous operation efficiency accolades,” says DeRocco.

“Justin is a team player who takes great pride in his and his teams’ work, while ensuring each and every one of his colleagues goes home safe every day.”

Next up: Kevin Bussières at GUAY.
