If We Were All Alike Would We Need Each Other? We happen to have on our team two managers that could be described as polar opposites.


Patrick Helmuth is our CFO and Office Manager. He has a thorough understanding of numbers, balance sheets, and complex accounting software. Fortunately it does not stop there: he also has the gift of working along side our predominantly female office staff. He is a man of few words, but many answers. In his quiet way he provides assistance and direction, not just for his staff, but also in assessing the flow of production and maximizing efficiencies with inventory levels of both raw materials and finished goods.


In addition to carrying a full load here at work, a few years ago he accepted the call to pastor a small church just north of us. He is known to pull all-nighters for sermon preparation. Patrick, along with his wife Amy and their four children are bringing new energy to Bethel Mennonite Church.


PATRICK AND TODD


In his unflappable manner, Patrick continues to keep our business on track while at the same time pastoring his flocks--both inside and outside the business.


Todd Krist, our Director of retail Operations, brings a completely different set of gifts to P. Graham Dunn. He is an experienced, street smart, savy Italian with years of retail experience. He came to us from Dick’s Sporting Goods. We all knew up front that Todd was going to have a tough time adapting to our corporate culture, and vice versa. However, he assured us he was ready to take that on. It was not without its hiccups. not only did he have to figure out what it is that makes Mennonites and Amish tick, he also had to adjust to a small family business style of operating.


At Dick’s Sporting Goods he reported to a supervisor. At P. Graham Dunn he has three owners that can’t seem to leave him alone. Paul, Joe and Peter, drawn to the retail end of the business like bees to honey, are constantly prowling through the store, each of them making their own suggestions as to how to improve operations. Throw into that mix Peter’s wife, LeAnna, the only one with a balanced aesthetic taste, who has strong opinions of what the store should look like.


For therapy, Todd often stays after work for half an hour in the evening, fishing our pond, pulling in large mouth bass, and throwing them back. It is his way of unwinding after a day’s work. Perhaps Todd’s most redeeming character trait is leading by example. He is the hardest worker on the floor. Before big events he spends his off hours polishing our floors until they sparkle, all on his own initiative.


Patrick brings a quiet stability; Todd brings an effervescent energy. While they may differ, their approach never conflicts. We are blessed to have them both.
