Ronda Kuehne, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, is not the first woman to lead the Kuehne organization. In the 1960’s, Peter Kuehne’s mother Dorothy Kuehne ran the company. Ronda takes her job as caretaker of a family business seriously. She relies on the management team, supervisors and staff to handle the day-to-day operations. However, she does work closely with the executives to ensure the vision of the company is realized and takes on special projects like the Holiday Party in December personally. She is involved in every detail and makes sure that the evening is a success. Ronda welcomes everyone to the event with a glowing smile and kind words and endeavors to ensure the evening is filled with great food, fun music and good company.
At the party, Ronda was asked for her thoughts on the company. “I became employed at Kuehne Company in 1984 working for Pete Kuehne. This became the best thing that happened to me – Pete was a wonderful person. His passing in 2003 was the heart break of my life. Pete always said that the success of this company was because of all the great people who work here. I thank God to have known all of these great people, and now many new ones. I’m so thankful that we will soon celebrate 100 years as a family business. I am sure Pete is also so happy that our son Zachary has become part of this wonderful Kuehne family and will continue the legacy.”
