Kathy Kerber is the President/COO of KSM. She has been with the Company since July of 1997. She is continuing the vision her father, Dan Kerber, had for the company when it was founded in 1979. The philosophy that she shares with her father is: treat everyone with respect, take pride in your work, make a quality product and deliver it on time and when you do, make sure you invoice for it the day it’s delivered. Dan believed in KSM’s Core Values of Excellence, Integrity, and Community. Kathy is very proud to continue instilling those values in everything we do each and every day! Fun Fact: Kathy’s nickname of Katfish was given to her when she was 3 months old by her godfather and people still call her that many years later. Kathy can be reached at:
