Name: Kerwin Kortman
Company/Position: Kortman Electric, Inc. | Director of Business Development

As the Director of Business Development, I most enjoy meeting great people and building relationships. Through associations like the ABA I have met some of the most talented and giving people in the construction industry.

Kortman Electric joined the ABA in 1995 and I have personally been involved since 2007.  Kortman Electric has benefitted greatly and gained valuable knowledge through the numerous networking events, educational programs and seminars provided by the ABA. Being able to work together with general contractors, industry professionals and even competitors that share the common goal of creating a great construction environment in Arizona has really benefited us as a company.

Some of my professional achievements include:

  •      Certified Professional Constructor (Since 2010)
  •      ABA LDF Graduate (2011)
  •      ABA Legislative Committee Member (2011 – 2014)
  •      ABA Community Services Board Member (2011 – Present)
  •      President of the Executives’ Association of Greater Phoenix (2014)

In my personal time I enjoy spending time with my two 14 year old daughters, family and friends. As for hobbies, there’s nothing better than a fly rod, a stream and the hopes of a “tight line”! I also enjoy doing community service projects that help those that otherwise would go without.

My personal and work philosophies are pretty much one in the same: Integrity first….. work hard at what you have control of…… Let God handle the rest!
