Eight years ago, Kari Rihm’s life shifted when she became owner of Rihm Kenworth after the tragic passing of her husband.  The business had been in her husband’s family since 1932. Since taking the reins, Kari has expanded the business exponentially, paving the way for future growth.  This year, the company celebrates its 87th anniversary.  Through Kari’s many accomplishments and business successes, she is most proud to provide her children with the opportunity to lead the company in the future.  Her daughter, Libby, is going through management training at another Kenworth dealership to learn more about dealership operations, and her son, JB, is currently Vice President and represents the 4th generation to work for Rihm.

Seating is limited.
