ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — Maytag® Commercial Laundry says it is proud to recognize National Sales Manager Randy Karn for 30 years of dedicated service to the company.
“After 30 years with Maytag® Commercial Laundry, Randy continues to be a valued member of our team,” says Craig Kirchner, global director of Maytag® Commercial Laundry. “He plays an integral role in our company’s continued growth and success, and he is as dependable as the machines he has helped bring to market.”

From communication methods and office equipment to the many technological machine advancements, Karn has witnessed many changes in the industry throughout his career.
To Karn, the past 30 years have been an enjoyable journey of never-ending discovery, all the while surrounded by great people.
“I enjoy the people I meet and work with each day—whether they are colleagues or customers, I’m always learning something new from them,” he says. “It amazes me how many people spend their whole careers in the commercial laundry industry and always maintain that passion to be the best they can be every day. They’ve been a great inspiration to me.”
