Local Business Team Member receives 2021 Top Achiever Award
A Mesquite business member has been named a national 2021 Top Achiever by Foodservice Equipment & Supplies Magazine. Katie Green has been named the Top Achiever – Service Agent. Green, is the Customer Service Manager for Refrigerated Specialists, Inc. (RSI) in Mesquite. RSI is a market leader in the installation, service and performance maintenance of commercial refrigeration, ice machines and beer systems.
When asked about the award, Katie Green said, “It’s pretty humbling. I have been with RSI for almost 20 years, it’s the summer job that never ended. It’s humbling to learn that people think I’m contributing not just at RSI but on an industry level.”
The annual award by the magazine honors “Top Achievers” from five industry segments for their abilities to not only run market-leading companies but also raise the level of professionalism for the food service industry overall.
Green has worked with RSI since 2001 when she was 16, helping the company transition from a smaller company with just a few dozen workers to nearly 100. In the last five years, Green has become more involved in the food service industry and joined the Commercial Food Equipment Service Association (CFESA). She served as the Co-Chair of the Young Professional Committee at CFESA before being elected on the organization’s board of directors.
Green has enjoyed these new opportunities and growth, saying “It’s a challenging industry. No two days are ever the same. I like a challenge though and I think I’ll be here for the long haul.”
Green added RSI is always hiring for service technicians and is willing to teach people how to fix commercial refrigeration. For more information, email [email protected].
