Having experienced working on the shop floor where he started learning about machining, Kyle Detterbeck has a thorough understanding of the industry and the challenges of efficient part production. He joined the family business, Lester Detterbeck Enterprises Ltd., in 2008 as a member of the fifth generation of Detterbecks in manufacturing. He eventually worked his way up from the shop floor to the front office, where he now sits as V.P. of the company.

“Kyle cultivates a new perspective to a very mature industry,” says Kyle’s father and president of the company, John Detterbeck. “He is always eager to try new ideas, and he pushes the company to improve.”

As a member of the PMPA's NextGen committee and its Management Update committee, Kyle is active in the industry. Outside of the business, one will find him with his wife and two kids or at the fire department where he is a volunteer firefighter and a first lieutenant for his department.
