Kurt Ehlers

Director of Business Development

Kurt Ehlers’ passion for the design and construction industry began in college when he worked for a family friend who owned an electrical contracting company. Now more than ten years later, what started out as a side job, has turned into a fulfilling career.

As Director of Business Development for Wakefield Beasley & Associates, Kurt prides himself on his ability to help clients solve their design challenges by connecting them with the appropriate experts at WBA.  Kurt is most satisfied when he can point to a building where he was instrumental in bringing the people together who made it happen.

Prior to joining the firm, Kurt served as a Nuclear Reactor Operator and Instructor for the U.S. Navy.  He also served in project management and client service roles for large multi-national corporations, such as Mitsubishi Electric and Trane. His commitment to building long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationships has gained Kurt a strong following of loyal customers.
