Case Studies

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 […]

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 […]

Kaufman Lynn

When the team at Kaufman Lynn first began laying the groundwork for the company’s new headquarters, they knew the space had to be more than just noticeable. Amid the sun-soaked vibes of South Florida, where designers have a reputation for flash and whimsy, it had to be memorable. From playful mesh steel façade to the […]

Kedrick Wright – San Antonio ISD

Back in the private sector after a productive five years with the Houston Housing Authority and one of that city’s independent school districts, Kedrick Wright figured he’d be around for a while as a project manager for the local affiliate of the civil engineering firm of Lockwood, Andrews & Newman. Career-wise, he’d have everything to […]

Keith Stewart – University of Illinois Springfield

It might’ve been the chancellor’s house at one point, but don’t quote him on that. All Keith Stewart knows for sure is it was built sometime in the 1950s—not surprising, given the modified ranch’s dated look and spartan features—and that it became the University of Illinois Springfield’s on-campus childcare center purely by default. Over time, […]

Kelly Noel – Aurora Health Care

It’s a fact of construction life that the bosses have been bemoaning for years. Though the trades are teeming with opportunities, there’s not a rush of young men and women to be electricians, mechanics, pipefitters, masons, painters, plumbers, carpenters and all the other vocational roles so necessary in bringing a blueprint’s intent to fruition. As […]

Ken Ziff – TTEC

Hurricane Harvey having slammed into Gulf Coast of Texas in late summer of 2017, the Federal Emergency Management Agency needed a strategic partner—and fast—to help spread word of relief efforts and to alert residents of further danger. Though based in Englewood, Colorado, and having made its mark by establishing contact centers for commercial clients worldwide, […]
