KCTC Employee of the Month – Richard Brenneman 


Richard Brenneman has been employed with KCTC since 1974. Richard is amazing at project management. He has seen us through many changes in equipment from the outside all the way to inside the home. His dedication to seeing a project all the way through from start to finish and motivating staff to accomplish goals is so much appreciated. In addition Richard is a wealth of knowledge. His 42+ years of experience are second to none. We appreciate his dedication to ensure each customer is taken care of. Just one example of this would be the many late nights he’s spent in the office to upgrade equipment. Thanks, Richard, for being so awesome! We appreciate all you do!
