Fenton, Missouri-based Kadean Construction has experienced rapid growth during the past two years, with annual revenues more than doubling to $151 million in 2020.
Much of the growth is the result of expanding the contractor’s service footprint well beyond the Midwest by leveraging a customized in-house design-build project delivery process that is leading clients through their projects and building lasting relationships.
Most of Kadean’s business has come from new and repeat clients in the industrial, healthcare, multifamily and cannabis markets.
To sustain this growth, Kadean has made strategic additions to its staff, including seven new professionals to its St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri, offices. It has also created a new eight-person leadership team consisting of a past principal, current partners, project directors and a business development strategist. This team’s focus is to strategize and foster the responsible growth of Kadean.
Strategic senior leadership additions include Cameron Denison as project director in St. Louis and Jeff Yartz as senior project manager in Kansas City.
Denison has more than 20 years of experience in engineering and project management and has managed projects in the retail, healthcare, education and laboratory and pharmaceutical markets.
Yartz has more than 20 years of experience in construction and project management with demonstrated expertise in healthcare and educational building construction, including preconstruction and design-build services.
In addition to Denison and Yartz, Aaron Retherford was added as Kadean’s executive leader for the execution of growth and business development across all offices and future expansion efforts. Retherford focuses on building relationships and developing plans to execute strategic growth initiatives, which includes expanding work with current clients and pursuing national clients in new markets. Retherford also helps market and execute Kadean’s Design-Build and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) capabilities.
