Celebrating Darius McCurty’s Recognition in the LBM Journal 40 Under 40 Awards

We are thrilled to announce that Darius McCurty, our Senior Vice President of Accounting & Controller, has been honored as one of the LBM 40 Under 40 for 2024! This prestigious award recognizes outstanding professionals in the lumber and building materials industry who are making significant contributions and leading the way for future generations.

To earn a place on this esteemed list, individuals must demonstrate exceptional leadership, professional impact, and a commitment to enriching their communities. Darius embodies all these qualities and more.

Professional Excellence

Darius has been instrumental in ensuring the financial success of Kodiak, one of Colorado’s largest privately held companies. His leadership has guided our accounting team through periods of incredible growth and momentum. When faced with market challenges and the global pandemic, Darius brought innovative solutions that addressed complex problems, showcasing his strategic thinking and adaptability.

Community Enrichment

Beyond his professional achievements, Darius has made community enrichment a cornerstone of his personal and professional life. His efforts have positively impacted hundreds of young people in the Denver Metro area. He believes in leading by example and supporting others in reaching their full potential by focusing on performance, influence, and exposure to new experiences.

Inspiring Future Leaders

Darius’s career journey is marked by overcoming obstacles and continuously adapting and growing. What sets him apart is his focus on the rearview mirror— sharing his experiences and lessons learned to help others on similar career paths.

“Growing up from humble means, I didn’t have a lot of support and guidance to avoid some of the pitfalls that I experienced while pursuing my career,” says Darius. “There are so many avoidable things that end up making that path a bit bumpier than it needs to be. As a leader at Kodiak, and in the Denver community, my goal is to continue to be humbled by every opportunity presented for growth and success, and to share my experience and inspire young professionals so that their learning curve might be a little less severe than mine was.”

Congratulations, Darius!
