In 1996, Judy Wehrmeister started working for Midwest Groundcovers as a Customer Service Representative. One her first day, Judy said, “They (customer service reps) have to be more than order takers; they have to be designers, horticulturists, and plant gurus to be able to answer all the questions that come to them!” Judy is all of those things and more —that’s why she is so important to the Midwest Groundcovers team.
She is proud of the many roles she's had during her 23 year career at Midwest. Starting as a Customer Service Representative, moving to the Inventory Department, doing Purchasing for a year, and then becoming the first Outside Sales Rep, Judy has certainly done it all. Judy went full circle when she returned to Customer Service a few years ago.
What Judy enjoys most is seeing the younger generation do “a fantastic job of marketing, growing not just plants, but themselves, and implementing process improvements.” Speaking for the younger generation, we want to say thanks for paving the way Judy!
