Foxes are known for their intelligence, agility and adaptability. These qualities are fitting for the aptly named Kim Phox, who has served in a variety of roles at CQuence and its flagship holding, Cassling, over the past 20 years.

From Regional Vice President of Sales for Cassling to Vice President of Sales for CQuence’s portfolio company, WasteMedX, she has left an indelible mark on the organization in every role. Kim’s impact is evident in the many great things said about her.

“Kim is the definition of a team player,” said Mike Cassling, Executive Chairman of CQuence. “She embraces any challenge and does what’s necessary to achieve a goal, leaving no stone unturned. We’ve been lucky to have her leadership over the past 20 years.”

“I’d like to congratulate Kim on reaching her 20th anniversary,” said Kyle Salem, CEO of CQuence. “Kim’s tenacity and resilience in navigating uncharted waters has been an asset to Cassling, and now to the CQuence team. I really appreciate how Kim has faced change over and over again, always coming out on top. Her experience and perspective are a tremendous value as we move toward our vision.”

“Kim is a standout team member and colleague,” said Bruce Stec, Vice President of People and Culture for CQuence and Cassling. “She consistently models our Cultural Beliefs, always providing above and beyond service. Her go-getter attitude makes her an incredible asset to our organization, and the holdings and portfolio we serve.”

“Kim truly represents the Cassling and CQuence culture in the best possible way,” said Shawn Pew, Vice President of Cassling Service. “No matter her position, she has always made a positive impact both internally and externally. She brings passion and a caring attitude to everything she does, and it shows in the long-standing relationships she has formed. Kim’s greatest love is her family and she is committed to being the absolute best wife, mother and grandma she can be. Thank you, Kim, for the friendship and the mentorship you’ve offered me on the sales side all these years. Congratulations!”

“Kim has had a tremendous career at Cassling and CQuence!” said Andy Beer, Executive Vice President of CQuence Investments. “She’s had great success and has always treated everyone with respect both inside and outside of the organization. Spending time with her over the years has been a pleasure. She works hard and also likes to enjoy time with her family, which continues to grow! She always makes me laugh when we are in meetings with customers. I like to make small talk, and she always says, ‘Let’s get to business!’ Congratulations on your 20-year anniversary Kim!”
