Jerome Ahmad is a man with many goals and a self-described student of life. And he’s always up for a new adventure.
“My proudest achievement at work is the next completed challenge,” said Jerome, a 23-year Kohler veteran who has steadily risen in the ranks by taking on new and unique roles.
“I arrived at Kohler with a GED and worked as an inspector in Industrial Castings for seven years,” said Jerome. But he wanted more.
Through Kohler’s tuition reimbursement program, he took accelerated courses to earn an associate’s degree in business management, while transitioning into a foreman role at the insistence of his managers. Now he is only six credits away from completing his bachelor’s degree, and he’s been promoted to production team leader overseeing the molding of tubs and sinks essential to Kohler’s business success.
“I was apprehensive about the change and the huge challenge that awaited,” Jerome explained. “But it’s a huge learning experience that I feel fortunate to have undertaken, all while working toward my degree and continuing to support my family.”
With so many accomplishments under his belt, what’s next for Jerome? According to him, it’s reaching the 25-year mark at Kohler.
“Becoming a member of the Quarter Century Club is an achievement I hold in high esteem, and I pray I am able to achieve that.”
Based on his track record, we have a feeling he’ll get there just fine.
