Kitchell Promotes Three Executives at its Phoenix Office
PHEONIX, AZ Three of Kitchell's committed employee-owners have been promoted to the position of Vice President.
"These three promotions - all from varied corners of our company - represent our vast array of services and the ability to grow through commitment, loyalty and creativity," said Kitchell CEO Jim Swanson.

Kurtzman is a 22-year veteran of Hardison/Downey and previously held the position of Hardison/Downey Vice President of Client Development. His more universal title reflects his expanded range of duties and his growing responsibilities as h/dc's scope and footprint grow within the Kitchell family. Kurtzman is a graduate of the University of Arizona and resides in the Arcadia area of Phoenix, Arizona.
Nicole Maas was promoted to Vice President of Marketing & Communications at Kitchell Contractors from her prior position as Marketing Executive. Maas has played an integral role in growing Kitchell's national building footprint. Each year she co-chairs the company's Build Fore Good charity golf tournament, which so far has raised more than $250,000, and last year was named one of the Phoenix Business Journal's Forty Under 40. Maas is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, and obtained her MBA from the University of Phoenix. She resides in Laveen, Arizona.
Dan Mills was promoted to Vice President of Kitchell CEM from the position of Regional Executive for Arizona.
