Diversified Fall Protection Appoints Kynan Wynne as First Chief People Officer

Diversified Fall Protection (DFP), the largest turnkey fall protection integrator in the U.S., has announced the appointment of Kynan Wynne as Chief People Officer, marking a significant milestone as the first executive to hold this position in the company's history. This strategic move underscores DFP's commitment to fostering an empowering and supportive work culture for its employees.

“We fondly refer to Kynan as our culture crusader,” said Travis Nelson, CEO of DFP.  “We are so fortunate to have someone with Kynan’s experience and people skills to fill this role. This is an uncommon position for a company in our industry, but our people are the most important input to our success, and we know we cannot grow without investing in them. The customer experience is a direct reflection of the employee experience.”

With nearly 40 years of industry experience, Wynne is a seasoned professional who previously served as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for DFP. He joined DFP in late 2021 following the acquisition of his company, Rooftop Anchor, Inc., which he founded in 2009 and led as CEO before it became a DFP brand.

In his new role, Wynne will focus on enhancing the overall employee experience, guiding career development, and strengthening the company’s employee-oriented culture. He will report directly to the CEO, overseeing the full Human Resources team.

“All the business success I’ve enjoyed in my life is a direct result of being surrounded by amazing people,” Wynne said. “When a company is devoted to providing a workplace culture that allows people to grow and thrive, the best version of that person appears. As an employer, it’s our duty to help that along. A Core Value of ours is ‘to take people to higher ground,’ and our goal is to do just that, starting with our own team members.”

Established in 1994, DFP employs over 300 professionals across six U.S. locations, serving clients nationwide. The company has seen exponential growth, quadrupling in size since 2019, fueled by four strategic acquisitions (PEAK Fall Protection, Fall Protection Systems (FPS), Rooftop Anchor, and Versatile Systems, Inc.) between late 2019 and 2021. Since 2021, DFP has achieved a remarkable 30% growth rate.
