HOLLY HAWKINS, President (WI)
With more than two decades in the business and fresh from managing a $200MM project, Holly Hawkins joined KCD in 2019. She is so well-known and respected in the industry that, when learning of her move, one subcontractor called KCD with a clear, four-word message: “Take care of her.”
Business development and operations management of the Wisconsin office.
Coach, collaborator and problem solver, Holly is the consummate team player. “Everyone has a job AND we’re all there to help each other do the best job possible.” She helps co-workers over the hurdles and does whatever it takes throughout the project. “There’s nothing Mike and I ask others to do that we don’t also do ourselves. And yes, sometimes that means sweeping the floor.”
Holly’s grandfather used to tell her about his dream of becoming an architect. So Holly set her sights on becoming one herself. Later, when she had to step up and work with the contractor on the renovation of her parents’ home while still in high school, she made an important discovery: Construction Management. From then on, she knew exactly what she wanted to do in life.
