Laura Gano

Operations and HR Manager


I joined Peter Kiewit Foundation in 2019. As the Operations and HR Manager, I assist in keeping the office running as well as overseeing all Human Resource functions.

Prior to joining the foundation, I spent 7 years working in the staffing and recruitment industry, providing operations and human resources assistance to both internal and external employees.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Morningside College and grew up in the marvelous state of Iowa. I currently live in Omaha with my husband, Ben, our two children, Will and Emersyn. In my free time I enjoy traveling “back home” to Okoboji, spending time with friends and family, and volunteering as the Nebraska State Director for Great Plains Pointer Rescue.
