Verena Goetz was amazed at the scope of JK’s operations

Verena Goetz joined JK last summer as a Global Relocation Coordinator. She had seen the JK trucks all around the Washington, D.C.-area, but it was not until she joined JK that she realized just how many pieces cooperate to form an independent moving company. “I was very amazed when I first came on board at the size of the operations.” She realized that the company is made up of more than movers. There are long-distance drivers, move coordinators, operations and logistics, and also the training managers that keep our crews’ skills fine-tuned in JK’s training house.

Everything was very different (except that I could still watch “The Benny Hill Show!” every night!). I also would say I am a bit […]
