About the gm

Marty Romeyn was born and raised in Chilliwack, BC. After helping run his uncle’s dairy farm for 7 years, Marty started his own excavation company, which he ran for 10 years. In 2012, Marty started his own dairy farm, which he still currently operates.

While working for his brother, Marty was approached by Westbow Construction with a job offer. Marty took the job with Westbow Construction, working on infrastructure and development. At the time, there was only one excavator and two landscapers. As Marty’s team grew alongside the company he began diversifying, starting to work on road construction and civil work. In 2020, Marty stepped into his official role as the General Manager of KGH Equipment.

Marty now runs KGH Equipment, supporting managers with issues and solutions, focusing on growth, and maintaining the company’s culture. His twins Kyle and Josh also work for KGH, along with his stepson Cody. Out of all Marty’s job responsibilities, his team and culture are the most important to him.
