With 15-plus years at JK Moving, Bradley Van Kleeck can attest to the company’s unique culture. “My favorite part of working for JK is the people,” he says. “When you’ve worked for the company for as long as I have, it’s inevitable you form special bonds with your colleagues over time, and that’s what makes this a special place for me.”

In his current role, he’s responsible for providing relocation, storage, and logistical support services to companies in the DC-Metro area.

Bradley sets goals each year for himself, and this year is no different. “My current goals are to improve upon my results year over year, continue to strengthen existing relationships internally and externally, and to lead by example to our up-and-coming sales professionals,” he says.
