We’re pleased to announce that Zachary Knipe has joined our team at California Sheet Metal in the role of Vice President of Operations. Most recently, Zack was running the University of San Diego’s Office of Planning, Design and Construction. Prior to that, he served as a commercial General Contractor with Rudolph & Sletten, and as a Program Manager for General Atomics Electromagnetic systems.

Zach brings to the role a strong background in commercial construction, as well as extensive experience in manufacturing and defense engineering. But that’s only part of the story. He’s also the co-owner of the Kensington Brewing Company — an independently owned and operated craft beer company that he started in his garage back in 2012.

When he’s not helping transform architect’s visions into reality (or conceiving the next malt-based masterpiece) he enjoys spending time with his family — which includes both coaching and playing soccer — and snowboarding. We’re delighted to have him as part of the team, and look forward to the many fantastic projects the future holds!
