Kleven Construction Management Team

Jerry Kleven, President

Jerry has spent his entire 40-plus year career in utility construction. He began his career in the early 1970s as a laborer, working at the end of a shovel. He moved quickly to operator, foreman, superintendent, and eventually, management. In 1982, Jerry founded Kleven Construction in the greater Phoenix, Arizona, area. Jerry’s ability to effectively manage the organization has led to the expansion of Kleven Construction throughout the western United States.
