Team

Tom Hartman

The kitchen business is in Tom Hartman's blood; he's never done anything else. Born and raised in Denver, Tom was indoctrinated through his father, P.G. Hartman—a kitchen industry visionary known for process and perfectionism. He had his own drawing board by age eight, and spent much of his childhood immersed in the nuts and bolts of the business. Then, when P.G. died suddenly in 1974 of a heart attack, Tom (still in high school) joined his mother and sister to take over the family enterprise. Tom went on to study business at the University of Colorado, Denver, and become a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD) in 1987.
An admitted "detail fanatic," Tom is known throughout the industry for his "evil eye"—his ability to walk into a space and tell instantly if something is out of balance. Drawing on the deep expertise of his mentorship with P.G. and his own experience, he has been instrumental in nurturing Denver-area designers and continues to forward the industry as a whole. In 2002, he brought bulthaup, a European luxury brand respected internationally for quality and precision, to Denver. Since that transition, he has come to embrace the minimalist beauty of the Bauhaus design philosophy. Tom officially took the reins of Kitchen Distributors in 2008, upon his mother's retirement. The consummate innovator, he remains passionate about every aspect of the business, from compassionate employee relations to meticulous project installation—and dedicated to continuing the legacy of Kd.'s proud 60-year heritage.

Jed MacKenzie

As a Senior Designer at bulthaup Denver, Jed Mackenzie is following a lifelong passion for art and design. He finds inspiration daily, and draws upon his European travels for design cues. Jed studied at Fort Lewis College, where he majored in business administration and minored in art. His work has been featured in numerous local, national and international publications, including Modern In Denver, Colorado Homes & Lifestyles, Luxe and Trends magazines. He has received awards from Sub-Zero/Wolf, Viking, the American Society of Interior Designers, the National Kitchen & Bath Association and the Colorado Home Builders Association.
Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe said, "Less is more." Robert Venturi said, "Less is a bore." Jed's design philosophy is that form follows function, but that it isn't defined by it. He sees challenging spaces as opportunities to encourage creativity, and likes to create focal points to draw the eye in, while maintaining balance and proportion. Jed imagines his client in the space, and visualizes the experiences that will happen there—his goal is to realize a client's vision and exceed their expectations with innovative solutions that inspire them!

Elizabeth Krabill

Elizabeth Krabill An east coast native, Elizabeth spent the summers of her youth in a small art community on the coast of Massachusetts. This early exposure to creativity spawned a lifelong passion for and the pursuit of beauty in clean lines and artistic symmetry. Upon graduation from high school in northern Virginia, she continued her quest to develop her own creative spirit by earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Art Studio with a minor in Photography at George Mason University.
Elizabeth is inspired in part by Frank Lloyd Wright’s belief that form and function work together as one and guided by the belief that simplicity always works. Perhaps contradictory on the surface, she understands that quality design possesses a minimal element.
A 14-year veteran of the Washington, D.C. interior design industry, Elizabeth has been published in House Beautiful, LUXE Interiors & Design, and the Washington Post. Her work was also featured in the annual Washington, D.C. Design House that benefited the Children’s National Medical Center.
