“Who’s a great fit for Fastenal? A person who wants a chance to succeed. A person who believes in themselves. A person who’s willing to get outside their comfort zone and try things they didn’t believe they could do.

If you have that mindset, you’re going to find a very familiar home here at Fastenal.”

“A career in industrial construction supplies never crossed my mind. I thought it was going to be a three-month internship, but all these years later, I’m still with the company.

I attended a local college, needed a paid internship during my junior year, and met Jeff Hicks at the career fair. I interviewed with him and got the offer to work part-time over the summer in 2002. During my senior year, our assistant manager moved to Florida with the company. Jeff called and asked if I wanted to be the Assistant General Manager. I accepted and began my full-time career with Fastenal while finishing school. A year later, a General Manager positon became available in Goshen, Indiana. Same story, Jeff called, and I took on that challenge growing sales from mid-30’s to $200,000. Two and a half years later, I got the nod from Randy Miller for a District Manager position in Northern Indiana. I did that for 14 years, until accepting the VP role for the region on January 1st, 2019.”

“I learned early on that if you have a voice, an idea, work ethic, respect, and an open mind…that the sky is truly the limit. I’ve met some of the best people, visited countless states and countries, have built a team that didn’t exist before, and led large projects with some of the best problem solvers and partners. I see many years ahead doing the same!”
