Each week, EYP recognizes new members in the organization. This group is constantly growing and changing and we love bringing in new members and fresh ideas! This week, we are excited to welcome Kevin Hanke, Katherine Horton and Brittany Platt. 

Kevin Hanke

Pelco Products, Inc

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I studied Business Administration at St. Gregory’s University, and I am currently employed by Pelco Products Inc. as their National Product Sales Manager. My wife Kendra, 2 year old daughter Kennedy, and 10 year old Boston Terrier Dawson make up my wonderful family whom I love spending all my time with. I also enjoy hunting, fishing, golfing, and rooting for the Chicago Cubs.

 What do you like most about Oklahoma?
There are many things to love about our wonderful state, but I think my favorites are the proud and hardworking people, the beautiful landscape, and of course the OKC Thunder.

What is your typical work day like?
I look forward to coming to work every single day and no two days are alike. The Parduhn family, who founded this company almost 35 years ago have established an amazing work culture and an even greater customer base. Growing business relationships while focusing on maximizing business opportunities with our nationwide customer base is my daily focus. We have an amazing engineering, customer service, and production team that make this focus achievable.

What is one thing you can’t live without?
Mexican food!! Coffee and sports radio each morning is a close second place.

Katherine Horton

Student

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a full-time student at the University of Central Oklahoma.  I am majoring in Human Resource Management and minoring in Business Administration and plan to graduate in May 2018.  I am very excited!

What do you like most about Oklahoma?
I have lived here all my life and Oklahoma is my home, where my family and friends live. 

What is your typical work day like?
I am not currently working so I can make sure I can give my full attention to my school work since I have a rather large load this semester.  Next semester, I should have less classes, and plan to try to get an internship with a local company and build my experience. 

What is one thing you can’t live without?
My family: my son, two dogs, two guinea pigs, and my mom.  Never a dull day in my house!

Brittany Platt

UCO

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a born and raised Edmondnite. I graduated in 2013 from the University of Central Oklahoma with my bachelors in communications. I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends and going to estate sales.

What do you like most about Oklahoma?
I like that while still being in the state of Oklahoma you can experience the city, suburbs, country, mountains, lake, rivers and salt plains just within a short drive.

What is your typical workday like?
My typical day at work consists of helping students, faculty/staff and community members with their parking needs at the university.

What is one thing you can’t live without?
Pasta
