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. 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.”
In the article, Nottberg conveyed gratitude for the people at U.S. Engineering as well as optimism about Kansas City’s future, which includes the construction of a world-class airport that U.S. Engineering helped build.
“I was proud to be the mechanical contractor for the new KCI terminal,” said Tyler Nottberg. “Whether it was our Field Team Members who put the mechanical systems in place, our Operations Team Members managing the work and interacting with all the other teams on the project, or our Office Team Members making sure paperwork got processed; everybody felt like they were a part of building something that our community can be proud to now have!”
RECESSION ODDS: “I got out of the prediction business years ago because I wasn’t any good at it. However, our team will be prepared to deal with whatever comes.”
KC’s NEXT THING: “As a host city for the 2026 World Cup, we have an enormous opportunity to showcase our city and region on a global stage. The teams now working on that effort are filled with exceptional leaders who are committed to making our city’s version of that experience a success well beyond the 25 days that the tournament is taking place. We will cement Kansas City’s status as one of the best destinations for events and business in the country.”
MENTOR: “Early in my career, I had the chance to work for Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind). I was doing basic grunt work, but he always had time for me. He often talked about the fundamental importance of integrity. Do what you say you’re going to do, demonstrate compassion, exercise self-discipline, and be honest. All these things are easier said than done, but his actions and words set the bar for me.”
In a fun coincidence, just as Ingram’s published this article, Nottberg rediscovered this newspaper clip from 1934. It highlights Kansas City leaders and includes Gustav Nottberg Sr., illustrating U.S. Engineering’s rich history.
