Knight’s Companies Promotes Kim Bokern to Dispatch Manager

Kim Bokern

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. ─ Knight’s Companies is proud to announce the promotion of Kim Bokern to dispatch manager. In her new position, Bokern will train and manage seven dispatchers and dispatch services in every Knight’s Redi-Mix market – Columbia, Charleston, Beaufort and Savannah.

During her six years with the company, Bokern moved up the corporate ladder with ease. Initially joining Knight’s as an order entry clerk, she was promoted to dispatcher within a year and adeptly juggled the demands of customers, internal management and concrete delivery professionals.

“In dispatch, you have to stay on your toes and think outside the box,” Bokern says. “There are so many different scenarios that may work, but you have to be able to look at the big picture and not just focus on one order.”

Now, Bokern must transition from being a dispatcher making quick decisions to leading her team to be confident in their choices.

“By training regularly and sharing my knowledge, I want my team to feel they have been given the tools to be successful every day,” Bokern says. “I know I wouldn’t be where I am without the help and knowledge of others, so it’s my turn to pay it forward.”

Bokern is based at Knight’s Summerville office and will travel to other Knight’s Redi-Mix markets as needed.
