Kurt Timmons is the manager and co-founder of Technique Roofing Systems, LLC with his younger brother, Keith. He has overseen the company for more than 25 years.
While some might find it difficult running a business with their sibling, Kurt finds it effortless and enjoyable. Reaching that balance of a productive and pleasant working relationship required Kurt to open himself up and learn from his brother rather than eschewing his perspective. Kurt’s brother has provided him with a “formula for success”, teaching Kurt the difficult art of owning up to one’s mistakes immediately and fixing them.
He carries that humility and devotion into his dealings with his customers and employees, as well, often putting their needs and desires above his own. He insists that his employees tell him when he is not being an active listener and encourages everyone he works with to be open and honest with him over their grievances.
When Kurt is not working diligently at one of his four companies he co-owns with his brother, he is spending time with his family or working on his farm in Burgoon, Ohio.
Kurt holds an associate degree in Agribusiness from Owens Community College and a license as a GSA Approved Contractor. He is also a licensed Roofing Contractor in West Virginia and Illinois.
