Matt Planker began working with his father, Dan, at a young age in the construction field as a side job on nights and weekends that quickly turned into a full time endeavor.
It was never Matt’s plan to work in the construction field as a full time career. He pursued a degree as an Airframe and Power Plant Aviation Technician and graduated from Vincennes University at the Indianapolis Airport location in 2004. While hopes where high after graduation to dive into an additional degree from Purdue or sign on with an airline, 9-11 had thrown a major curve ball into the Aviation industry that drove Matt back into the field he knew best at DW Planker. As the business grew while working with his father, Matt and Dan established a well know brand in Greenwood and surrounding area. Matt took over in 2022 with a passion to continue on the established family name and dedication of caring for their customers needs both now and into the future.
