One of a company’s greatest assets is its people. Kice Industries is very fortunate to have gifted, dedicated, and customer-focused employees. We would like you to learn a little bit more about our people of Kice, both professionally and personally.
Meet Josh White
Technical Sales Manager, Western KS, OK, Western NE, NM, CO
How many years and what roles have you had with Kice?
I’ve been at Kice for just over 19 years. I have worked as a welder and fabricator in the manufacturing department, in the order processing group, the Quickship component sales, and customer service group, and currently, I am a regional manager in our technical sales group.
Tell me a little bit about your current day-to-day job/responsibilities
My job is to work closely with customers to identify solutions to improve existing process issues and implement new process systems. It’s also my job to ensure that everyone I encounter enjoys their experience of dealing with Kice.
What do you enjoy most about your job? Why?
I most enjoy my personal contact with our customers. There is no feeling like collaborating with someone to find a viable solution to an issue and implementing it to a successful conclusion. I also enjoy the opportunity to work in so many different industries. Every day is different and offers a chance to learn something new.
Can you share some things that set the company apart from other companies (what are the favorite things working at Kice?)
The culture here at Kice sets us apart. We are truly a customer-centric organization. Everything we do has our customers and end-users in mind. Everyone here understands that when our customers are happy and successful, we have succeeded as a company. Our culture here also focuses on faith and family. I believe the people here at Kice are our best asset. I feel very fortunate to work with a group of people Kice has assembled. The degree of respect and professionalism across and within departments is fantastic. I count several of my co-workers among my best friends. I feel fortunate to enjoy so many people in this company both inside and outside of work.
What are three words to describe Kice?
Integrity, Stability, Trust
Personal Side of Josh
If someone is coming to Wichita for one day, what is the one eating establishment they must visit?
Even though Pizza Hut was started in Wichita, I have to suggest grabbing a pizza at Wichita Brewing Company. Great food and great local brews.
Five things you enjoy are:
Live music, traveling with my wife, Kansas City Chiefs football, craft beer, working in my yard.
People would be surprised if they knew (about me):
I am a trumpet player and involved with several local ensembles
If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
Since I was a young boy, I’ve always wanted to be a firefighter. Hats off to the determination and bravery required to be a hero.
What are your biggest pet peeves?
Please, folks, don’t cut your fingernails at the office. Do that at home! Also, be ready when it’s your turn at the front of the line. Have your ticket out, your ID out, your credit card ready, or whatever it is that you need to be ready to go. Don’t hold up the line.
Best Vacation Experience?
Watching my Chiefs win Superbowl LIV in Miami. Yep, I was there!!!
You’re about to perform in a karaoke bar. What song do you pick?
