Kyle Paulsen
Director of Operations | Seattle

Kyle provides leadership and strategic direction to Mortenson's operations in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Before joining the Portland office, Kyle has had the opportunity to be involved in a vast range of project types including healthcare, higher education, performing arts hospitality and office. Following his mantra for success of "striving to understand and not just listen,” Kyle aims to spread knowledge to our teams to elevate communication.

Kyle finds building lasting relationships the most fulfilling and rewarding aspect of his career. He gains great satisfaction from leading our teams and supporting their career aspirations. Kyle believes that building a relationship on the bedrock of trust is essential because when we trust each other we can truly drive to the best outcome. He finds joy in construction and building projects, but the people that make it all possible are the best part of his career.   

Outside of work Kyle enjoys capitalizing on all the Northwest has to offer. Between hiking, skiing and sailing, he has a hard time thinking of any other place he would rather be. As a University of Washington Alumni, Kyle enjoys supporting the construction management program with guest lectures, student mentoring, and participating in Capstone. He is passionate about supporting his local community and loves opportunities to volunteer and support local charities. Some of his favorite charitable organization include Camp Erin with Safe Crossing, Stanley Stamm Camp with Seattle Children’s Hospital, and United Way.
