The Craft Development Story


Driven by a desire to make a difference in Milwaukee, and an entrepreneurial spirit, Dan Katt founded Craft Development, LLC to deliver projects with creative vision, passion, and determination.

Craft Development brings together Dan's training in engineering, his expertise in construction and architecture, and his ability to effectively communicate key issues and solutions to his clients – a unique blend of skills not commonly found in the industry.

A native of Milwaukee, Dan left the Badger State to attend the University of Iowa to study engineering and play Big Ten Football. Four years later, Dan was back in Milwaukee and quickly immersed in everything the city had to offer. Now a resident of the city's east side, Dan is relishing his role in growing his hometown through his personal commitments as well as his pursuits with Craft Development.

Dan is deeply engaged in the city as evidenced by his board and committee appointments with the Northwest Side Community Development Corporation, United Way of Greater Milwaukee, and City Reformed Church.
