Charlotte Kahn, President / People Advocate
Charlotte began her career life as a barber; she is the granddaughter and niece of small-town barber shop owners. Little did she realize at the time – working and managing in a humble family-owned business would prepare her to be the third and current President of Kahn Mechanical.
When Charlotte joined our team in April of 1999, she executed payroll and provided direct support to our team in any way she could be of service. Her unwavering passion for people is the reason she retains both the title and responsibility for serving as our People Advocate.
Her primary role today is as Integrator for our Leadership Team. She leads, manages, and hold each of us individually accountable to our values and our core focus. She is the steady force in our organization, creating clarity, consistency, and direction for the entire organization.
We are fortunate to have her steady hand and limitless heart advocating for our partners each and every day.
