“Our success has been because of our


customer base and our employees,” Maloley said. “Tey’re the ones out there doing the work every day, and our customers are repeat customers. Tey call us every week to do the work. I tell our employees, the only thing that we’re selling is service, and that’s what we’ve built our business on.

He’s a golfer, and he recently permanently made his home at Johnson Lake south of town, where he and his family like to boat and jet ski. He and Ronda, a retired school teacher and University of Nebraska graduate, are both big Cornhusker fans who attend home football, basketball and baseball games and occasional away games. He’s hoping for a better season than the Cornhuskers’ 6-7 results last year. “We lost a lot of heartbreakers,” he said.

priority for him. “It keeps me busy, but I put together a good


team here at MRK, and I’m able to step away and do some of those things,” he said. “I believe in that, and I believe that’s how we’ve gotten to where we are today as far as our community.”


Jennifer Wolf, executive director of


Dawson Area Development, the county economic development agency, said Maloley has quietly and humbly helped his community grow. He helped finance a pharmacy and worked with a new business to lease his old truck wash until it was able to purchase it. “He’s very involved in the community,
