Podcast 46 – The Family Business of Knutson Construction: Building for the Next 110 Years

The Family Business of Knutson Construction:  Building for the next 110 years

Our featured guest for this episode is John Curry, 3rd generation owner of Knutson Construction, a commercial construction company that boasts 110 years in business! 

Before joining the company, John spent some time playing hockey as a Goalie; in high school, college and for the pros! He started his construction career on the job site and over time, moved his way into an executive position, where he manages the primary customer accounts and business development. 

John's grandfather, also John Curry, bought the business from the Knutson's in 1985, carrying on the family business legacy that the Knutson family started back in 1911. 

Legacy is truly a foundational pillar for the Curry family and they take their ownership very seriously. They operate knowing their people are their biggest asset and have developed a company culture that builds upon the loyalty of their best and brightest. 

They're currently working through a Succession Plan for John's father, Steve who has hired their first non-family member as President of the company, and is now acting Chairman of the Board. 

Their strategic plan focuses on building upon this succession and furthering the growth of the business by expanding their internal capacity.
