Kathy had no idea in 1999 when Joe and Gary bought the Brandl dealership that in 3 months' time she would be joining the team. Jessi, their oldest, was born right before the dealership was bought and after it was time to go back to work, Kathy decided to leave her current job and join Brandl part time. This soon turned into a full time job and she hasn't looked back.
She started out doing a little bit of everything in the office and as the dealership continued to grow her duties narrowed in. She likes to say she is a Kathy of all trades and can help out in many areas. We do not see her much within the dealership as she is kept upstairs working her numbers for the Little Falls and St. Cloud stores. However, she does have frequent visitors, but often times is cut short when the boss zips past with "the look"….back to work we go.
Kathy and Joe have three children - Jessi, Cole and Kayla. She enjoys watching them play sports throughout the year. One of her favorite ways to spend a summer day is on the lake pulling the kids behind the Jet Ski. One of Kathy's favorite pastimes is to travel. Costa Rica is her current favorite place; however, anywhere there is sun and sand she is more than happy to visit.
Since 1999 and the decision to change careers, Kathy had no idea that her part time office job would turn into a 3 dealership business. It has been fun and rewarding to be a part of the Brandl family from the beginning!
