Karen Kertis, DMV Title Clerk/CSR at Yard 85 in Mifflin, PA, is celebrating 30 years with Copart this month. “I started at the Greater Pittsburgh Auto Auction in 1988. It was a small business at first, and we only had five employees,” said Karen about the early days of her career.
Copart acquired the Greater Pittsburgh Auto Auction in 2006, and Karen began her current role as DMV Title Clerk. At her region’s Copart Town Hall that took place on April 7, Karen was brought on stage to celebrate her milestone with CEO Jay Adair and COO Sean Eldridge.
We recently sat down with Karen to learn a little bit more about her and her career at Copart.
What is one of your biggest accomplishments during your career at Copart?
“My greatest accomplishment was being the regional R.A.C.E. Award winner and winning a trip to San Francisco. My husband and I had a great time. We even got to go to the races and meet Kenny Bernstein.”
What do you enjoy most about working at Copart?
“I love the people I work with. They are a great bunch.”
What’s something your coworkers might be surprised to know about you, even after 30 years?
“I’m not sure what my coworkers would be surprised about. We seen to know almost everything about each other…”
Thank you for sharing, Karen. All of us at Copart thank you for being a part of our team and congratulate you on your 30-year milestone!
