Kyäni Co-Founders

Carl & Linda Taylor

Carl Taylor is a driven innovator who helped grow a simple family farm into one of the largest potato businesses in America with nearly 30,000 acres of cultivated land. He also expanded the business to include one of the finest cattle ranching operations in the country. Carl achieved this successful transformation with thoughtful and forward-thinking investments in land, equipment, and process technology. In fact, he developed new harvesting and sorting processes that are used today throughout the agricultural industry. Carl is a strategic and genuine collaborator, known for bringing people and ideas together to forge business relationships. As a Founder, Carl brings a pioneering, cutting edge mindset to Kyäni and inspires us to innovate and succeed.

Jim & Leanne Hansen

If you think you’re an early riser, you don’t know Jim Hansen. For decades, Jim has been starting his day before 4:00 am to personally check the inventory of each departing truck to ensure accuracy for his customers. This level of service and attention to detail has helped build the family petroleum business from 2 million gallons of fuel sales to hundreds of millions of gallons during Jim’s 25-year tenure. This has greatly contributed to the Hansen Family’s wealth and financial security. Besides his discipline and dedication, Jim is incredibly dynamic. To his family business, he has been the dispatcher, the administrator, and the negotiator. As a Kyäni Founder, Jim is a business mastermind and influential executive with the ability to guide Kyäni toward better execution and profitability.

Kirk & Rebecca Hansen

Kirk Hansen is a highly successful, multi-generational businessman with a lifetime commitment to Kyäni. From a very early age, Kirk Hansen took on special tasks in the family’s small petroleum business. As a young teenager, Kirk was entrusted to perform long-distance deliveries in commercial trucks. He personally built the company’s bulk oil business long before larger competitors could catch on. He led the expansion of the family business’s holdings into real estate, restaurants, and hotels. Kirk’s ability to visualize and execute a winning strategy was evident in purchasing a deteriorating property and turning it into one of the nation’s largest rail-to-truck fuel facilities. When Kirk sees an opportunity, he learns new skills to make it happen. Kirk is a tenacious, hard working organizer with the ability to build lasting business relationships. Kirk is a visionary leader that keeps Kyäni focused, relevant, and prosperous.

Kyäni Caring Hands has a mission to provide hope to children in need by improving access to nutrition, sanitation, and education. Together our donations accomplish tremendous good through projects such as the recent building and expansion of a school near Chiapas, Mexico, which is enabling children there to break the cycle of poverty and bring change to the community. Caring Hands also delivers Potato Pak throughout the world, and together we provided more than 1 million servings to the needy in 2016.

Kyäni Caring Hands is partnering with Convoy of Hope, a humanitarian organization based in Missouri, to accomplish its mission. Convoy of Hope will be able to provide tax documentation for your Potato Pak purchases, so you can deduct those purchases. Those tax receipts will be available at the end of the year.

Purchasing Potato Pak is one of the easiest ways to make a difference, by helping feed children who don’t always know where their next meal is coming from.

Success Starts With Helping Others!

Since Kyäni’s humble beginnings, helping others to ‘Experience More’ has been a major part of the Founders’ core beliefs. This passion for giving back has led to Kyäni’s culture of giving and the foundation for Kyäni Caring Hands. “As we look within ourselves, observe the needs around us and then take action, it allows us to ‘Experience more’ in a profound way,” says Kyäni Founder and Chairman Kirk Hansen, “Kyäni Caring Hands is only part of what we do, but it’s all of who we are.”

In conjunction with the Kyäni Caring Hands initiative, Kyäni is pleased to introduce another way to help others – a way for you to be a part of something bigger and more impactful than ever before.
