Amanda Kurt, vice president and managing partner at Union Grove-based Kurk Concrete Inc., has implemented new construction technology and doubled the revenue of the field team since becoming a partner in 2013.
“Amanda also gives back to the community, working with Habitat for Humanity of Kenosha to elevate the need for affordable homes and working to build more homes, positively impacting more people’s lives,” said Angela Elliot, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Kenosha.
Kurt currently serves as Habitat’s Women Build Week chairperson and is involved with site coordination, subcontracts, and volunteers.
“She has worked with many different publications and businesses to elevate the voice of women in construction as well as share the opportunity of building a career in construction for all people. She is currently working with the local home builders’ association to organize a Build My Future event for southeast Wisconsin students and parents to raise awareness of the careers in construction,” said Elliot.
In addition, Kurt volunteers in high schools, hosting job site tours and meeting with students to discuss career pathways.
