Michael Johnston, Cost Accounting Manager, and Tim Carter, General Accounting Manager, both long-time and valued members of the Mickey Truck Bodies team, will retire from the company at the end of April. They joined Mickey on April 24, 1978 (43 years), and April 22, 1996 (25 years), respectively.

Michael started in Mickey?s machine room/small parts prior to taking on responsibility for the company?s Costing Department, where he helped launch the company?s entire costing system and establish protocols for handling special pricing requests. During his tenure he also managed Mickey?s scrap program.

?As a young boy, Michael would ride his bike to the plant to do small jobs for us,? recalls Carl Mickey, Jr., Mickey Chairman and grandson of company founder Will F. Mickey, and a lifelong friend of Michael. ?He has always been very dedicated, willing to do whatever was asked and doing it with enthusiasm. Congratulations Michael. You?ve earned it.?

Soon after joining Mickey in 1996, Tim was instrumental in building a solid financial team, according to Greg Fisher, currently President of MV&H and Tim?s first manager at Mickey. ?He was exemplary in getting books closed in a timely fashion and assisting in controlling expenses.?

?Both Michael and Tim have always represented the best of ?The Mickey Way,?? says Matt Sink, Mickey CEO. ?They led by example, working evenings and weekends to ensure that all assigned duties were completed accurately and on schedule, and pitching in wherever and whenever they were needed. They were true advocates of the 3D?s ? desire, determination and dedication.?

Another Mickey teammate, Khamsee Khutsuvan, Beverage Production, celebrated his silver anniversary at Mickey on March 5. Carolyn Bryson, Manufacturing Services, hit her 15-year Mickey mark on April 5.

Ten-year celebrants include Cyndi Kinley, Accounting/Finance (April 20), and Justin Henderson, Machine Room (April 4).

Seventeen percent of Mickey?s full-time teammates have been with the company for at least 20 years. Twenty-eight percent of the entire Mickey team has been with the company for 10 years or more.
