Kitchell announced Friday that Ryan Hook has been promoted to project director. Hook started his career at Kitchell in 2001 and has played a key role in several of Kitchell’s signature healthcare construction projects, most notably and recently, the construction of the new tower at Chandler Regional Medical Center. This is one of Kitchell’s largest design-build projects. Earlier projects include a design-build project with Dignity Health and multiple renovation and expansion projects at Banner Desert Medical Center, among many others.

“Ryan is a consummate client-directed builder,” said Kitchell Contractors President Dan Pierce. “His passion for his work is infectious and he leads by example, not only to his internal teams but to owners, architects, consultants and trade contractors, as well.  This is a well-deserved promotion and all of us at Kitchell look forward to watching Ryan’s career continue to grow far into the future.”

Hook received his degree from Purdue University. He resides in northeast Phoenix.
