The design-build firm will add two longtime team members to its C-suite. Jay Kingham, who joined KDW in 2006, will serve as President, a role formerly held by Keith Dalton, who will remain Chief Executive Officer. Eighteen-year veteran Rolf Scheffler has been named to the new role of Chief Operating Officer. Previously, Kingham was KDW Principal and Construction Manager, while Scheffler served as Director of Special Projects.
“Clients rely on us as a single-source solution that excels in every stage of a commercial development,” Scheffler said. “As COO, I will work to optimize efficiency in processes, implement risk management practices, and champion quality control initiatives to meet our 2024 operational excellence goals.”
Former Project Manager Michael Mann replaces Scheffler as Director of Special Projects, and KDW’s Preconstruction Manager Mark Camilli has become Director of Preconstruction.
In 2023, KDW launched nearly 40 projects, including Sovereign Flavors’ Kyle, Texas, headquarters; Balcones Resources’ San Antonio-based material recovery facility; Elin Energy’s Waller County, Texas, solar panel manufacturing facility; and Newton Nursery’s Spring, Texas, nursery. The momentum continues into 2024, with additional projects slated for completion throughout the year.
"As KDW expands in and beyond Texas, we need additional leaders to serve our growing client portfolio and employee base,” Dalton said. “The new structure recognizes and supports our employees’ dedication and professional development and provides a strong foundation for our future.”
