Podcast: 3rd Generation and Going Strong with a “People First” Focus

Podcast: 3rd Generation and Going Strong with a “People First” Focus

Our show today featured John Curry, a repeat guest of Poised for Exit. John is the CEO of Knutson Construction and is doing impressive things at the helm in the two years since his appointment. 

John is the 3rd Generation in his family owned business and he’s made some great strides in growing the infrastructure of the business the past few years by hiring LEED certified professionals and by really having the whole team focus on who best to position the company for growth from an internal perspective. The construction industry is changing and staying ahead of that along with a close eye on day to day operations is a delicate balancing act that John’s gotten pretty good at!

John exclaims that working with outside advisers has made a “giant” impact in how they run the business, make improvements and identify their best prospects for future growth. Delivering their work as a Best in Class organization from every angle is something they constantly strive for and as John says, they never pretend to have all the answers. In other words, they’re intentionally humble and listen to the advice they’re given. That core value and belief has helped them lay the strong foundation needed to take the business to new heights.
