Although the agriculture industry and our products/services may change over the years, one consistent factor remains; our employees are one of the most important ingredients in our recipe for success. Through our Employee Spotlight Blog Series, learn about the people who make up the Stutsman team. Up next in the spotlight is Jerry Widdel! Jerry joined the team in 2016 as a nurse truck driver before he transitioned into our wholesale hose and valve department as a shipping and receiving specialist. Some of his responsibilities include building hose and fulfilling product orders.
We strive to instill the Stutsman core values in everything we do and of course, our employees are a major part of this. Anybody that knows and works with Jerry can easily identify that he radiates enthusiasm. “Jerry’s ability to radiate enthusiasm is second to none. His positive attitude and drive to make peoples day better is the same no matter what is happening in his life. He genuinely cares about everyone he works with and the task at hand. Jerry also exceeds expectations on a daily basis. Whether it’s getting orders out in a timely manner or taking care of a customer’s needs, Jerry is the first one to step up to the plate and make a customers’ experience with Stutsman’s a good one.” -Logan Stutsman, Wholesale Hose and Valve Sales
