40 years at Scotchman

From Scotchman Industries Inc.:

On February 18, Karen Kroetch celebrated her 40th anniversary at Scotchman. Working 40 years for the same company is truly amazing! Some may say it’s a freak event to be cheered, but for this company it is more of a wonderful occasion that has blessed them more than a handful of times -- Karen is now the ninth employee of Scotchman Industries to celebrate a Ruby Work Anniversary! 

Companies live and die by their numbers, and the person responsible for those numbers rarely gets the credit he or she deserves. Until today. Karen Kroetch started her career at Scotchman and related companies in the accounts payable department on February 18th, 1980, and has been a valued asset to the company ever since. For the past 40 years, Karen has been heading to work at the same place, week in and week out. She is rarely ever late, and often seen working long hours late into the night and on weekends to make sure the business stays on course, every employee is paid on-time, and so much more. Through the years, she has worked in all areas of the accounting departments and was promoted in 1992 from the accounting manager position to being Scotchman’s CFO, a position she continues to hold today. Karen is not only Scotchman’s CFO, but a member of their executive leadership team and has played an instrumental role in the company’s success. 

Success never comes in a day. It comes with strong determination and with great hard work, and Karen Kroetch is an example of that. Not only is she a strong leader, Karen displays patience, compassion and empathy for the needs of the company and the people in it. 

“Karen, you bring first-class professionalism, determination, a strong work ethic, and passion to this organization,” said president, Jerry Kroetch. “Not a day goes by that we are not appreciative of your dedication. Your commitment and hard work are an inspiration to us all, and may you continue to inspire us for many years to come! And may you always remember how much you are needed, respected, and valued. Thanks for everything you do around here. This place wouldn't be the same without you.”
