ST. LOUIS—KAI proudly announces the hiring of Connie Northcutt as Project Controls Director.
As Project Controls Director, Northcutt will work with KAI’s Architecture and Engineering leadership to provide oversight, direction and assistance to KAI’s project managers regarding project financials. She will work to improve and standardize project controls processes and best practices to help project managers achieve financially successful projects.
She has over 26 years of experience in the Project Controls profession and has held numerous leadership roles throughout that time. Her experiences have included development of tools, standards and best practice documents for project financial management; development of curriculum and facilitation of training for project controls and project management professionals; analysis of challenged projects; consulting for the development and implementation of a global project controls system; and management of program controls for an international buildings client.
“Throughout my career, I have focused on streamlining and improving project planning, financial management and project execution systems and processes to improve the ability of project managers to focus on projects and clients instead of internal processes,” said Northcutt. “My efforts have had a positive impact on the company’s bottom line.”
