Kim Brown

Operations Manager and Training Facilitator

I came to ARD because I wanted to do something different; and, I liked the idea of working for an African American man who owned his own business because I aspired to someday own my own business. Also, I was as a new single parent and the company allowed me to take care of my children without it hindering my opportunities for promotion. In fact, I was promoted to supervisor very shortly after I was hired.

ARD has helped me grow by exposing me to seasoned managers who mentored me and taught me what I needed to know about Logistics. When I made a mistake - I did not feel my job was on the line. They provided support and explanations. ARD has been like family. They not only care about the job I perform, but about me as a person.
