Prior to joining Transit Mix Concrete Company and McKinney Door and Hardware, Kris was the Controller/ General Manager for a residential window manufacturer in Colorado Springs. This experience provided him the background to manage all aspects of a manufacturing environment. Kris joined Transit Mix Concrete Company in 1999 as the Assistant Controller with the expectation of replacing the Controller who was retiring within the next two years. Within the Transit Mix businesses, a small portion of their business was their door division. In 2002, to grow this niche business, Continental Materials Corporation acquired McKinney Door and Hardware. With his manufacturing background and familiarity with these businesses Kris was promoted to General Manager/President of McKinney Door and Hardware. In 2005, McKinney Door and Hardware acquired Colorado State Safe and Lock. This acquisition enabled McKinney Door to offer a full-door service distribution center and provided the company an avenue to grow the electronic access portion of the business. McKinney Door and Hardware has continued to grow over the past 18 years while maintaining a positive reputation as a quality door distributor. Kris is active in several community service initiatives to include Rotary, commercial truck route committees and currently sits on a recreation all park committee.
