We are pleased to announce and welcome Danny Kimmel, P.E. to the Blackwater family as our new Director of Sales.
Danny began working for his father’s residential construction and poured concrete wall companies at a young age (at his request!) in the summer time. As the youngest child of four, he wanted to quickly learn everything about construction to keep us with his two older brothers. The hands-on experience greatly helped, and Danny’s desire to become as well-rounded as possible in construction influenced him to attend WVU’s School of Engineering, where he graduated in 2007 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. Upon graduating, he worked for an engineering firm that focused mainly on commercial construction and became a Professional Engineer in 2013.
In 2014, Danny came full-circle back to the residential side, and worked for nearly three years as a Construction Manager in building homes, where he became familiar with Blackwater Concrete. Truly, the best part of the job was helping people turn their dream home into reality.
Throughout the years, Danny built one house from the ground up in his “free time” in 2008-2009, and in 2014 he and his wife Erika, took on a major fixer-upper home. His family continues to grow, as their oldest son, born in 2015, got a little brother shortly after Christmas in 2016. The family dog, Arya, keeps getting more play buddies.
Danny grew up in Frederick County, Virginia, and knows the surrounding areas very well. His free time is enjoyed with his family, watching WVU sports, exercising and occasionally hunting and fishing. Growing up, he played baseball and football, but his favorite sport was wrestling. The most important things in Danny’s life are his family, his faith and his career.
