The KGCI Team

Bryan Kissner

Bryan Kissner
Owner/President/Project Manager
Favorite Machine: Excavator

Bryan started KGCI in 1995.  With a lot of hard work and his lucky clover, Bryan built this company from the ground up.  He has completed over 70 contracted commercial and heavy civil projects. As the President and Lead Project Manager, Bryan takes a hands-on approach to every project, overseeing estimating, scheduling, budget review, value engineering, and general company performance.  Though Bryan is involved in every phase of construction, his favorite place to be is behind the controls of an excavator.

Kyle Kissner

Kyle Kissner
Vice President/Project Manager

Kyle earned his BS in Construction Management from Colorado State University in 2008. Since then, he’s worked on all phases of KGCI’s award-winning projects, including project estimating, submittal review, scheduling, and on-site management. In 2016, Kyle was recognized as an Elite Industry Leader Under 40 by Construction Equipment Magazine. Outside of the office you can find Kyle golfing or taking the side-by-side out on the Mesa with his wife Kristen and daughter Vivien.

Diane Kissner
Chief Financial Officer/HR Manager
Favorite Machine: 245 Excavator

No project would happen without Diane, who manages our financing, insurance, and reporting.  KGCI keeps her on the run, but she still finds time to go hiking and jogging with her friends.  She also loves doting on her pups, who hit the jackpot when they got her for their mama.

Nolan Kissner

Nolan Kissner
Heavy Equipment Operator
Favorite Machine: Bulldozer

Nolan earned his Associates Degree in Construction Management from Colorado Mesa University in 2012.  Since then, he’s usually found on-site directing workflow, ensuring safety, and operating heavy equipment.  In the office, Nolan assists with scheduling and budgets.  Construction is always on Nolan’s mind, as most weekends are spent building his house and spending time with his wife Brooke and their kids Teagan, Connor, and Aislynn.

Jaime Jordan

Jaime Jordan
Assistant Project Manager/Marketing Director/Licensed Drone Pilot
Favorite Machine: Front End Loader

Jaime assists the Project Manager with all phases of construction, as well as running the VR lab and our website/social media campaigns.  She’s also the licensed drone pilot behind our drone imaging and surveying and our LEED Green Associate.   Before coming to Kissner GC, Jaime earned a PhD in the Humanities and taught writing, literature, and digital humanities classes at Colorado State University. When she’s not doing research on industry trends, Jaime’s out playing with her two construction-workers-in-training, Jack and Benji.

Sherry Thompson 

Sherry Thompson

Sherry has worked in construction admin since 1980 and at one time kept a bookkeeping for small contractors.  She is a past President of the metro-Denver chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC). You’d never guess it, but Sherry has a son, three grand-kids, and two great-grandchildren. When she isn’t keeping KGCI in line, you might find her camping, crafting, or spending time with her Australian shepherds.
