But Brenda brought more to Kissick Construction than a solid work ethic and intuitive business acumen. She brought the rare ability to connect with every employee who entered the doors of Kissick Construction. She created an environment within the company where employees were nurtured and watched over–a family atmosphere where everyone felt a part of the team. She was attentive and involved in the needs of every employee, and took the time to really get to know each of them, not just at work, but on a personal level as well. Employees’ spouses and their children became part of her family, too, and she truly cared for them. In the early years, Brenda served as a second mom to Jim’s young sons who were often visitors to the office. And still today, they reserve a special place in their hearts for her.
“It’s not a company. It’s a family.”
