Class of 2022

Kim Crawford has been a leading pioneer in the development of PartsBadger, starting as the sole design engineer and now serving as “chief xploratory officer” for the growing Cedarburg-based CNC shop.  

Colleagues said Crawford’s background and skills have been recognized for improving engineering systems and designs, strong efficiency and improving company standards.

“Her passion is rooted in engineering, but it typically crosses over into operations and production. This has allowed her opportunities to travel internationally, gain more knowledge of the market and help establish a broader supply chain,” according to colleague Brandon Spenneberg. “Kim transitioned into the CXO role, focusing on innovative business development and key account management opportunities.”

“Kim is a great leader due to her wide knowledge base and willingness to assist others. When specific information is not known within the company, she is willing to do whatever is necessary to find out the information needed, driving the company to advance quickly,” said Nick Krumbiegel, lead design engineer for PartsBadger.
