JMX Brands’ Customer Experience Team Assistant Manager Kari-Jo Koshes has been named one of this year’s members of Leadership Sarasota County.
The four-year veteran of JMX Brands, the parent company of the largest online retailer of Amish furniture at www.dutchcrafters.com, was selected for the prestigious program for people interested in leadership and the welfare of the Sarasota community.
Koshes, a graduate of the University of Central Florida and Columbia Southern University where she is currently pursuing a doctorate degree, said she applied in hopes of meeting like-minded individuals who are eager to become some of the area’s future leaders, and to learn how to improve her native city through team projects that will help the area grow and prosper.
“I’m excited to learn from thriving businesses in Sarasota, and to participate in helping solve a problem affecting the area,” she said.
“I’m really proud of the way that Kari-Jo has developed professionally and grateful for the significant contributions she has made within the company,” said JMX Brands CEO Jim Miller. “I’m impressed by her thirst for new challenges and her strong desire to learn and grow.”
Run by the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Sarasota County accepts up to 40 new members every year. Alums of the program include some of the area’s most influential leaders.
