2020 Crew Foreman of the Year

Each year at the NFBA Conference & Expo one crew foreman is recognized as an exceptional leader and employee to such a degree that they are awarded the NFBA Foreman of the Year. While COVID-19 forced the cancelation of the 2021 Expo, NFBA still wanted to recognize the 2020 Foreman of the Year. The 2020 Foreman of the Year Award was presented to Matthew Kennell of H&D Quality Builders along with a check for $1,000.

Matt Kennell has been working for H&D Quality Builders full time since 1994 and worked part time from 1992-1994. “He has been a pillar of this company, and our post frame offering, for almost 3 decades.’ said Austin Meinhold. “Matt has been our lead Crew Foreman on hundreds of projects, building everything from small sheds and garages to 20,000+ sq. ft. churches, warehouses, and horse arenas. Over the last 28 years, Matt has defined what it means to deliver a quality project at H&D Quality Builders, setting the bar for not only speed and efficiency, but for attention to detail and final fit and finishes of all aspects of a post frame building. Our past and present employees look up to and respect Matt not only from a professional standpoint, but on a personal level as well. They take notice of and appreciate his calm, assured demeanor, and willingness to take on any challenge. He approaches every project humbly and assuredly and has always been dependable. He treats our employees with kindness and respect. He is even a pastor of a local church in our area! We have been blessed to have Matt work with us for the last 28 years.” says Austin Meinhold. Matt has been at H&D through the construction boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s and stuck it out with them through the lean years following the 2008 Recession. “We at H&D Quality Builders are grateful for his dedication and leadership and look forward to what he has to offer in the years to come!”

NFBA congratulates Matthew Kennell and H&D Quality Builders for winning the 2020 NFBA Crew Foreman of the Year!
