ORIGINAL In 2008, Kimberly started the company that would prove to be her catalyst into the world of successful entrepreneurship. After striking out on her own, KDM Engineering was created to provide consulting services on engineering projects. Unfortunately, the effects of the recession and the need to care for her ailing father created a conundrum that was not easily solved and resulted in her closing up shop and moving her life to Indianapolis where her father resided. After his untimely death in 2011, Ms. Moore returned, more ready than ever to make a go of the company that she believed in. She wanted to create a company that would focus on client experiences and customer service, and was successfully able to do so. Today, KDM Engineering is a multi-million dollar entity that has managed to outwork many of the other firms in the Chicagoland area. Since moving the company to a brand new, downtown office twice, Ms. Moore has been focused on growing and expanding her brand as much as possible in order to have a hand in community relations. Still, even with all of her success, there are moments when she can be caught sitting in her office and tinkering with some random object, no doubt relishing the moment and being grateful for the trajectory that got her to this point. Well-loved by employees and clients alike, Ms. Moore will continue making her mark in the industry, as well as the world.
