Who

Albert Kahn is a diversified group of great people. We speak different languages and come from various countries. We have diverse backgrounds in architecture, engineering, planning, interior and landscape design and management. Some of us have worked here for over 30 years while others are just getting settled in.

We are mothers, daughters, fathers and sons. We are grandmothers and grandfathers as well as grandchildren and great grandchildren. A number of us have worked on projects that have won awards and international recognition thanks to the combined efforts of everyone at Kahn.

Our Board of Directors and Strategic Board provide the structure and guidance necessary to carry on the Kahn legacy. Throughout its history, Kahn has been in the capable hands of some of the industry’s best leaders and innovators and we’re confident tomorrow’s leadership could be starting today.

Engineer at Heart

When Pete Lynde, PE, LEED AP, was fifteen, he got a teenager's dream job - part-time mechanic in the local motorcycle shop. For seven years, he spent every summer vacation tuning up and tearing down Hondas and Suzukis.

Then he got his second job, and he's never left it-mechanical engineer at Kahn. He was trained at Penn State's Architectural Engineering program, one of only a few such programs in the U.S.

In college, he studied the specialized area of building acoustics engineering. Kahn had a major figure in that field-Kurt Traub-and Pete found a mentor. "I saw there was a chance to become the acoustical guy at Kahn if I stuck with it," he says, "and that's what happened."
