Mike Kaeding, CEO of Norhart, shares his vertically integrated solution of building affordable housing while using futuristic innovation that nobody's talking about.
A little bit about Mike...
"I'm Mike Kaeding, and I’m CEO of Norhart. We design, build and rent apartments. We are transforming the way apartments are built and managed by incorporating technologies and efficiencies that have revolutionized other industries, and led to high-quality, cost-effective projects.
My parents started our family business. But just a few years after joining the business, my dad unexpectedly passed away. Suddenly, I had what felt like the weight of the world on my shoulders. I had to lead this business. I had no preconceived notion of "the way things are done" in this industry. I was struggling to the point where the city briefly shut us down. This shattered my world. But we just naively started to solve problems. And that was the magic.
We began changing the way construction is done. Starting with an attractive culture unique to the construction industry we hired the best talent. Together we solved chronic construction inefficiencies, applied techniques from manufacturing, and integrated traditionally unaffiliated trades. This resulted in higher quality and lower cost projects.
My mission is to solve America’s housing shortage by transforming the way apartments are built and managed. And in doing so I will improve the way we all live."
