Team Member Spotlight: June 2020

Congratulations to Keith Ulvestad, Plant Manager for Raven Aerostar's protective wear team, for being chosen as our June team member spotlight winner! Keith was nominated for this honor by his supervisor, Mike Zacher.

Leadership with a Can-Do Spirit

Keith exemplifies what it means to be a leader at Raven. He takes ownership and sets great direction for his team to be successful. Running a satellite location comes with different challenges, and Keith takes them head-on.

Whether it's interpreting the drawings on the latest parachute prototype, making sure that everyone hears the latest company communications, or stepping up and leading a team in making hundreds of face masks for our teammates in a pandemic atmosphere, Keith handles it with a can-do spirit and positivity.

I really enjoy reviewing the Madison, SD performance with Keith. He has a great grasp on both the team members in the plant and the products being produced — and on top of that, he starts every call with checking in on how I am doing. We forget the human side of work sometimes. It is really refreshing working with Keith, as he brings it all together."
