Employee of the Month: Kurt Stricker
Congratulations to Kurt Stricker on being Employee of the Month for October 2023!!
Kurt commenced his journey in the warehouse, swiftly establishing himself as a pivotal contributor to our company. His expertise in our products expanded, paralleled by a growing array of responsibilities. From tasks involving shipping and receiving to maintaining stringent quality control standards, Kurt demonstrated his mastery of the warehouse.
An opportunity arose for an inside sales/office position, and although he was a little apprehensive, Kurt embraced this new challenge. What began as a modest role soon evolved to encompass sales, purchasing, and even some accounting duties, and Kurt thrived in each one of these facets.
While Kurt excelled in his office roles, it was evident that his true passion lay in the warehouse. As soon as an opening materialized in this department, we promptly relocated him to his ‘happy place.’ Kurt stands out as a dedicated individual who never takes shortcuts or opts for the easier path. His motto of “Do it right the first time, and you won’t have to do it again” aligns perfectly with his work ethic.
Kurt holds a vital position within the Northwest team, and we consider ourselves fortunate to have him as a part of our workforce. – Bill Ryan
