Charlotte Kahn

President / People Advocate

Charlotte began her career life as a barber; she is the granddaughter and niece of small-town barber shop owners. Little did she realize at the time – working and managing in a humble family-owned business would prepare her to be the third and current President of Kahn Mechanical.

When Charlotte joined our team in April of 1999, she executed payroll and provided direct support to our team in any way she could be of service. Her unwavering passion for people is the reason she retains both the title and responsibility for serving as our People Advocate.

Her primary role today is as Integrator for our Leadership Team. She leads, manages, and hold each of us individually accountable to our values and our core focus. She is the steady force in our organization, creating clarity, consistency, and direction for the entire organization.

We are fortunate to have her steady hand and limitless heart advocating for our partners each and every day.

Josh literally grew up in the air conditioning business. Kahn Mechanical Contractors was incorporated shortly before his 8th birthday. This provided Josh the opportunity to spend many adventurous summers knocking around our sheet metal shop – working with power tools, learning from technicians, and learning colorful new words. Josh was hired full-time in 1987. After initially managing the service side of Kahn Mechanical’s operations, he moved into construction for the next two decades. He now serves as our company CFO.

Josh formerly served as President of the Texas Air Conditioning Contractors of America and the Community Services Foundation. He has served on the Board of Directors for Dallas Habitat for Humanity, the North Texas Chapter Air Conditioning Contractors of America, and numerous industry technician training and certification committees. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees for Temple Emanu-El and invests considerable time serving on boards and committees which support family and spiritual nurturing. Josh is most passionate about his service to High Adventure Treks, an organization dedicated to growing relationships, communication, and leadership skills between fathers and their children.

Josh holds a Texas Air Conditioning Contractors license and a BBA from the University of Phoenix.
