Kyrsten Romero
Project Manager

Serving  Custom Contracting’s clients since 2016, Kyrsten comes from a long line of construction workers. Her father, brother, grandparents, and cousins have all worked in various capacities in the industry. Long before she joined Custom Contracting, she began to prepare for a career in construction by earning her associate degree in construction management.

 

She began as an estimator, but once she came on board with Custom Contracting, it became clear that her talents were multifaceted. Although her official title is project manager, she has applied her knowledge and skill in information technology to help the company transition to a paperless environment.

 

The thoroughness and accuracy of her reporting and documentation is highly valued by all stakeholders in the projects she manages. “Attention to detail is one of the things that’s a natural part of the culture at Custom Contacting,” she says. If you don’t have it, you’ll likely not be a good fit at our company.”

 

She recalls numerous times when she or another member of the Custom Contracting team have been able to apply their training and on-the-job experience to spot and avoid potential problems or to identify an opportunity for greater efficiency or cost savings, something that a less seasoned individual might miss.

 

An excellent communicator, Kyrsten draws on her deep understanding of the business side of construction as well as its practices and procedures to plan and manage each phase of a project to successful completion.

 

“I love to go on site where I can interact with all the different people on a project—the clients, the trades, and the users,” Kyrsten says. “I get a lot of satisfaction watching how things change as we progress through a project and the positive reactions we get from our clients.”
