Case Studies

Kaisey Kenkel – Hertz

The headaches of flying need not be passed on to ground transportation, which has been getting easier, airport by airport. Last November, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport—the nation’s third busiest—followed the recent model of others, consolidating car rental operations, parking and vehicular transit under one massive 2.5 million-square-foot offsite shell. But while O’Hare built this Multi […]

Kal and Kam Takhar – Crowne Development Inc.

They continue to beat the odds that have consumed so many small and medium-sized companies in California’s very competitive homebuilding industry, since the last downturn. The way things are going for Crowne Development Inc., brothers Kal and Kam Takhar could be well on their way to having yet another success story from which to leverage […]

Kanta Electric

Even today, six years after the storm surges flooded cities, washed up boats and destroyed coastal property, the scars of Superstorm Sandy remain. Some are invisible—the emotional damage wrought by the loss of life and home—but others can still be seen in battered buildings and gouged-out shorelines throughout the mid-Atlantic and into the Northeast, from […]

Karen Diener

Between 2014 and 2015, internet pioneer AOL acquired mobile-ad giant Millennial Media, attribution marketing company Convertro, and Microsoft’s advertising business—all in the same 18-month stretch. For Karen Diener, AOL’s longtime senior director of real estate, the trio of deals presented a unique challenge. In a typical acquisition, the acquiring company will procure both people and […]

Karen Hodson – CM Group

From the moment Karen Hodson walked into CM Group’s former San Francisco office, she knew the vibe was all wrong. Conference rooms unnecessarily clustered in the center demanded the most attention, making the open-concept desks surrounding them feel scattered and sparse. Adding to the effect, the office was just too big for the number of […]

Karl Ingoldsby – Somersworth School District, SAU 56

When an organization is in the midst of a major renovation project, it usually doesn’t expect the new guy on staff to make a suggestion that impacts the bigger picture. But that’s exactly what Karl Ingoldsby did—and his idea is paying off in more ways than one. When he was hired as the facilities director […]

Kathryn Bielefeld – Shoe Sensation Inc.

“See a need and fill a need” may very well be Kathryn Bielefeld’s career mantra at Shoe Sensation Inc. It’s certainly a principle that has guided Bielefeld to the position she has today as the director of new store construction for the Jeffersonville, Indiana-based family retail shoe chain. Beginning as an intern in 2011, she […]

Kathryn Gibbs – Merck & Co Inc.

She was only touring an intern, but it could’ve been a high-level corporate meeting or a group of industry guests, to see one of Merck’s buildings. Certainly, Kathryn Gibbs was still delighted to give a tour, especially to show how her company, global pharmaceutical giant Merck, strives to make itself accessible and safe for its […]

Kathy Makino-Leipsitz ‒ Shelborne Development

Kathy Makino-Leipsitz says she was inspired as a teenager while reading “Nothing Down,” a book about buying real estate with little or no money down. But she admits that she didn’t foresee her business path going the way it did. Makino-Leipsitz bought her first duplex as a college freshman with the $2,500 she saved from […]

Katie Simoneau – Manroc Developments Inc.

The price of metals often dictating the ebb and flow of the mining industry, Katie Simoneau has reason to be bullish about prospects for Manroc Developments Inc. For as Mark Twain would say, there’s gold in them thar hills, and recent demand for it has been high enough for this Canadian-based underground mining contractor to […]
