How the heck did BuildWitt get started, and who is the man behind the brand? Aaron Witt didn’t come from your typical blue collar background, and that’s part of what makes his story so interesting.Read Aaron's Story
Before BuildWitt, Dan led the 25-member marketing team at HCSS, a heavy civil construction software company. His team launched the I Build America movement, and won 15 national awards including Construction Marketer of the Year for their innovative campaigns.
Dan grew up working on the family farm and with local contractors in south Texas before graduating from Texas A&M. He started his career as a Marine officer, and then spent 20 years in sales, marketing, and recruiting roles with multiple Fortune 500 companies.
Kjell grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and construction is a huge part of who he is. From a young age, he worked at the family construction company, Gerber Construction, as a laborer, concrete finisher, equipment operator, and just about any other construction job imaginable.
After years of work in the field, he took on the position of safety manager at Gerber and worked hard to create a strong safety culture at the 100+ person construction company. His safety position morphed into a full-time marketing role at Gerber a few years later thanks to his love of storytelling. Now, he uses his years of experience to tell as many industry stories as possible and is a huge part of the BuildWitt team.
Kjell, his wife, and three little kiddos live in Salt Lake City. When he’s not BuildWitting, he’s busy chasing his little ones around the house and yard or playing hockey with childhood friends.
Angel was born in Southern California and has always had a love for video. His videography career began when he bought a simple video camera to record his friends skateboarding growing up. As his love for creating videos and films grew, he branched out into shooting weddings, car shows, and construction projects.
His work with construction led him to find BuildWitt, where he now travels and films construction and mining companies every week.
Prior to BuildWitt, Chase worked in a variety of creative positions at marketing agencies in Arizona and New York, including OH Partners and Horizon Media. He has won a variety of local and national awards for his design and advertising campaigns.
Chase grew up in Arizona, graduating Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University with degrees in business data analytics and marketing. After moving to New York City, he attended a graduate program in art direction. When he’s not picking color palettes, he can usually be found backpacking across the Southwest.
