Leaders come in many forms and employ many styles. And when you really analyze the common qualities of leadership, one of the many shared attributes for success is passion.

It was this element of Kimberly M. Kahl’s involvement in the national, regional, and local masonry industries that earned her recognition and the selection as the 2003 MASONRY CONSTRUCTION’S magazine "Industry Leader of the Year."

In her short but active career in association involvement, Kahl has delivered a freshness to an industry that needed a youthful zeal. She describes her current position as "a one person office representing the needs and desires of the Arizona Masonry Contractors Association members." Kahl also served as chairperson of SkillsUSA-VICA’s Masonry Committee for several years.
