PEWAUKEE, Wis. (July 29, 2022) Dirk Beveridge and his wife Gail pulled into the parking lot at the Gustave A. Larson Company home office early on Monday, July 25. Dirk is the founder of UnleashWD and the Executive Producer at We Supply America. He has set out to tell the story of the “noble calling of distribution.
The day flew by – starting with an introduction in the Larson Learning Center. There, the Leadership Team met with Dirk and gave a brief history of the company, answering questions on the company Mission, Values, and Culture. From there, the group dove into the distribution center tour, speaking with employees along the way, discussing what they appreciate about the company and the innovative solutions implemented to make the distribution center more efficient.
After speaking with employees and representatives from co-sponsor Mitsubishi Electric, everyone moved outdoors where lunch was served to the entire home office. Scott Larson and Dirk addressed the group, where Dirk reveled in what he had seen during his time at the Larson Company. Scott took the time to thank every employee for what they do. There were some laughs, and the visit concluded with a group photo in front of the We Supply America 38-ft. RV and a tour of the office space where he spoke with more employees.
"We are honored to have Dirk select the Larson Company on his tour celebrating our employees and their contributions,” said President and Chief Operating Officer Scott Larson. “Dirk was impressed with some common themes he heard while talking with employees – family, growth and trust. We are proud of our employees living our Larson values and are thankful for their dedication and appreciation of our culture.”
