Grady Kinghorn

CEO, President, Owner

Grady Kinghorn started Kinghorn Construction in 1979. The company evolved from subcontracting into commercial construction. As a design-build firm, Kinghorn Construction works with clients at all stages of the construction process, for any size project, and has allowed Grady and his team to build long-lasting relationships. He is proud to have been a part of the construction of 55 buildings in and around Rogers as well as his work with metro area churches.

Grady earned degrees in business, economics, and accounting from the University of Minnesota. He serves on the Board of Directors for the I-94 West Chamber of Commerce and on his church leadership team. Grady donates time and resources to many different community organizations and causes.
In his spare time, Grady collects antique tractors, vintage cars, and farm antiques. Many of the decorative items at the Kinghorn office came from the Kinghorn family farm in Rogers established in 1860. He and his wife Sandy enjoy skiing in Colorado and spending time with their eight grandchildren.

John Kinghorn, LEED AP

Vice President of Operations

John Kinghorn has worked full-time at Kinghorn Construction since 2003. He started his construction career in 1995 as a laborer for a home-building company, then worked for a residential finish carpentry company while working winters in Colorado. He graduated from Minnesota State University in Mankato with a degree in Construction Management and is a LEED Accredited Professional.

John works with clients at every stage of the process, from initial client meetings and the preconstruction phase to project management and on-site supervision. He enjoys the people he works with and the variety of projects. One of the most rewarding parts of his job is working with clients from the very beginning, when they may not even have land, and helping bring their ideas to reality.

In his spare time, John likes to spend time with family and enjoys water sports and snow sports. He spends time on the Mississippi River during the summer, and each winter, he and his family travel to Colorado to ski.

Chuck Edwards

Director of Business Development
& Project Manager

Chuck Edwards has more than 30 years’ experience in the construction industry, starting out as a carpenter apprentice and eventually starting his own business in commercial interiors. He worked with Kinghorn Construction for almost 20 years as a subcontractor. As a longtime partner, building projects together and sharing the same standards of quality, commitment, and passion for construction, Chuck joined the Kinghorn team in early 2018. He primarily works with new clients throughout all phases of the project, including estimating, budgeting, and overseeing projects in the field as project manager. His specialties include retail stores, medical facilities, office, warehouse, industrial, restaurants, and churches.

In his new role, Chuck enjoys connecting with clients and finds the work rewarding. He is enthusiastic about the types of projects Kinghorn takes on and the impact they have on their customers’ businesses.

Chuck has always been passionate about construction, even as a little kid. In his spare time, he and his wife spend time with family at their cabin in Wisconsin where they fish, pedal bike, and enjoy their surroundings. Over the years, they’ve completed work on the project themselves, from clearing the trees to building a bunkhouse. Someday Chuck would like to build a larger house on the lakefront.
