U.S. Engineering’s Chairman & CEO, Tyler Nottberg, has been named to Ingram’s 250—Ingram’s magazine’s annual list of the 250 most influential business leaders in Greater Kansas City—for the fourth year in a row. According to Ingram’s, the list defines business skill and executive excellence in Kansas City.
The Ingram’s 250 issue of the magazine features a bio and a short Q&A with the region’s top execs for the purpose of extracting “nuggets of wisdom.” Nottberg’s portion of the article conveyed a sentiment of gratitude and optimism as he mentioned how moving back to KC to join U.S. Engineering was the best business decision he’s ever made. He also sends a shout-out to the interns and team members who give him “hope for our future, meaning U.S. Engineering’s future as well as our community’s.”
In addition to being named to Ingram’s 250, Nottberg was among 30 of this year’s class selected to participate in the “i250 General Assembly.” The think-tank-like discussion took place in mid-September and focused on exploring “key issues facing the regional business community.” You can read about the General Assembly’s takeaways in “The Changing Face of Regional Business Leadership.”
During the discussion, Nottberg encouraged Kansas Citians to look inward at this city’s strengths rather than focus on other cities. “Kansas City does Kansas City really well,” he said. Nottberg also spoke at the Assembly about how a downtown ballpark could affect the Chiefs and the city as a whole and went on to talk about “a great deal of optimism in Manhattan” when referring to the Flint Hills-area business boom ahead of the opening of the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility, a project U.S. Engineering is proud to play a role in.
Congratulations to U.S. Engineering’s Chairman & CEO (and Chief Optimist!), Tyler Nottberg, on his four-peat.
