Congratulations to Barbi Cosgrove, who is celebrating her 18th year at Copart. She began her Copart career in 1999 as an Office Supervisor at Yard 60 in Des Moines, Iowa. “It is hard to believe that so much time has passed so quickly, but I am proud of this accomplishment,” she said.
In her 18 years, Barbi has created a pocket full of memories, but some of her favorite times are the simplest. “Lots of memories revolve around all the laughter and fun I’ve had at the yard with the staff, members and customers,” said Barbi.
Barbi enjoys working with her Copart family, learning continuously, and fulfilling the variety of tasks that each day brings. Jackie Wallin, GM of Copart Des Moines, said, “Barbi lives this quote every day: ‘If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?’ She is one of the most detailed people I know, which is why she so successful at Copart. She trains people to think in terms of the Copart story and their impact on the entire process. Working with Barbi is truly a pleasure.”
As a 2017 Service Star Award winner, Barbi represents what it means to go above and beyond for others. “I’ve been very fortunate to find a job/career that I enjoy so much—I still wake up every day looking forward to going to work to see what new challenges the day will bring…and to be with my ‘peeps’!” said Barbi.
Barbi, we appreciate your humble attitude, reliable actions, and your service. The Copart family would like to congratulate you on your career milestone. Here’s to eighteen more!
