Before joining our team, Kyan spent almost 18 years running a family car lot. With his extensive background in working with vehicles, he had always been curious about what a driving career would look like. After earning his CDLs and gaining some experience with Coca-Cola, Kyan found his home at Harbin. In his time with us, Kyan. has gone above and beyond in his role as a driver. Starting with the grasshopper and box truck, he now drives the 18-wheeler and consistently delivers 3-6 loads a day, depending on the location. His attention to detail and dedication to his work is truly impressive. What Kyan loves most about his job is the relationships he has built with our builders and customers. Knowing that each delivery he makes brings a family one step closer to their dream home brings him immense satisfaction. His passion for his work is truly inspiring to all of us at Harbin.

“My Hire date would be one of the most memorable moments of my time with working with Harbin. February 7th will always hold a special place to me, because my life changed forever professionally. I had no knowledge originally coming into the building material industry, and unsure of it would even be a good fit for me professionally. However, I can confidently say that I am so thankful for this opportunity, and I love working at Harbin.”- Kyan

Kyan really enjoys working for Harbin and truly appreciates the team and family atmosphere that exists within the company. “It’s comforting to know that everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. What sets Harbin apart from other workplaces is that they not only know your name, but they also know your family members” Kyan. This sense of familiarity and personal connection makes employees feel like they are truly part of a close-knit family at work. It’s clear that everyone plays a vital role in the success of each day, and the emphasis on collaboration and teamwork is what helps the company thrive. Working together as a team is not just a requirement, but a genuine pleasure at Harbin.

Kyan is happily married for 5 years to his beautiful wife Maggie and together they have a 4-year-old son named Gabriel. Being a dad is one of Kyan’s greatest accomplishments and he cannot wait to watch his son continue to grow and be involved in his life. He loves spending time with his family and enjoys going to the gym to stay healthy and fit. Overall, Kyan is grateful for his loving family and the joy they bring into his life.

We are so proud to have Kyan as part of our team, and we cannot thank him enough for his hard work and dedication. Congratulations, Kyan, on this well-deserved recognition! You truly are a shining STAR in our company.
