KURT TUGGLE, P.E.

President, Chief Executive Officer
Laramie, Wyoming
Year Joined: 1992

I’m proud to have been a part of the Trihydro team since 1992. This is a company where we understand, respect, and appreciate the contribution of our employees, who all have unique backgrounds, abilities and passions. 

I have lived my entire life in the Rocky Mountains—including Colorado, Wyoming, and British Columbia. I’ve always wanted a career aligned with my love of the mountains and outdoors, where I could do meaningful work with other people who are passionate about what they do, who they work with, and where they live.

While conducting post-graduate research in Civil/Environmental Engineering at the University of Wyoming, I found myself out of money and looking for work.  My college advisor suggested I apply at a small local Laramie firm – that local firm was Trihydro. Early in my career with the company, I worked on projects as a field technician, construction manager, and junior engineer, which greatly enhanced my understanding of how engineering designs become reality and function in real-world conditions along with how the company functions as a business entity.

My experiences working for Trihydro, doing everything from field work to engineering design and project management, has provided me with a solid foundation to perform my current role as the President, Chief Executive Officer for the company.    

Away from work, my passions are my family and the outdoors. I’ve been married to Karla for 26 years and have two fantastic children, Annette and Baxter.  I enjoy all forms of exercise and own seven bicycles (wait, okay, maybe eight by now) and at least ten pairs of skis. Enjoying time with my family and friends is what I do most outside of work. I am also a fan of architecture and live performing arts.

Our People Matter

Trihydro’s employees are its most valuable assets. We invest in employee development—and encourage an open, team-oriented, informal atmosphere that fosters employee well-being.

We are a team that builds strong client relationships founded on hard work and integrity. We seek talented, motivated professionals committed to doing the same.
