John Krahn has been involved in building construction since childhood and branched out on his own in 2001 when his father retired from building.
Developing and polishing the diamond no one else sees is a trait that is displayed time and time again with the developments and business deals he has been a part of. The ability to learn, understand and then refine is what sets him apart. A genuine passion for people, his family and doing life well are evident when you get the opportunity to know him. John is a hardworking leader, and the fruits of his labor are in his reputation.
When not at work, you can find John spending time with his wife and two kids; oftentimes at his son’s baseball or hockey games; or enjoying the antics of his spunky daughter. He’s also quite partial to spending time on the lake, enjoying the beauty of creation with fishing rod in hand.

George Krahn has been surrounded by the building industry his whole life, with construction experience ranging all the way from foundations to finishing. He began his career in building in 2000 where he along with his brother constructed homes for their father’s construction business.
When his father (George Sr.) stepped down from general contracting in 2003, George Jr. took an already successful home building reputation and made it even stronger. A true understanding of cost effective construction, extreme attention to detail, and knowledge in all areas of construction ensure a high quality finished product.
George and his wife have 3 daughters, they keep busy with a variety of animals on their hobby farm. When he’s not busy tending to animals, he enjoys spending time with his family. You will also find him in his shop working on vehicles or riding his motorcycle. George’s strong work ethic was developed at home and you can see it being carried on to his daughters.

Denis can also speak Russian and High German fluently which is often appreciated by Pinnaco’s diverse client base. You can usually find Denis holding down the fort at Pinnaco’s office and if you ever want to come visit, he takes his coffee with one cream.
When Denis isn’t getting a sun tan from his monitor he enjoys playing ping pong, working around his house, helping out in church and spending time with his wife and daughter.
