Denny Cisney Jr.

President and Co-Owner

Cisney & O’Donnell Builders and Remodelers

Denny Cisney has been a part of his family construction business for over 26 years.

“I guess you could say that I learned the business from the ground up since my parents were also the founders of the company nearly 50 years ago,” he said.

It was early in his career that he made his biggest misstep.

“One of the biggest mistakes in my career would have to be underestimating the knowledge and wisdom of colleagues with lot more experience than me… I have realized that I was really missing the mark by not taking advice or feedback from those around me who have ‘been there’ before and have either succeeded or failed at the same things,” he said.

Cisney’s education includes a bachelor of science in business administration and organizational management from Penn State University.

His volunteer activities includes serving as past president and current board member of the Builder’s Association of Central Pennsylvania (Centre County) and past board president and current board member of Huntingdon County United Way. In addition, Cisney serves on the Huntingdon County Business and Industry Business Development Committee, the hearing board of Smithfield Township Zoning and is a trustee and worship team member of the Huntingdon Christian and Missionary Alliance Church.

Cisney resides in Huntingdon County with his wife, Sandy, and daughter, Kara. He believes that a more verdant tourism industry could grow from the area’s natural beauty.
