A Seat at the Table with Shelley Koch


Join us for A Seat at the Table with Shelley Koch!

When Shelley Koch unexpectedly lost her father at age 29, she was thrust into the role of president at K & J Trucking. She was a woman in a man’s world, and others in the business took bets over how long it would take her to fail. With the right combination of tenacity and support, she has built K & J Trucking into a highly successful family-owned trucking enterprise.

A proud supporter of many state and local organizations Shelley was honored to serve as the first female president of the South Dakota Trucking Association. She is also active with the Sioux Falls Chamber Business Leadership Council, Feeding South Dakota, and the St. Francis House. Shelley is a dedicated parishioner at St. Mary’s and has served on the financial advisory board for the Catholic diocese. She and her husband Brad have three adult children, two of whom currently work for K & J Trucking.

Shelley is passionate about helping and supporting young professionals in all areas of business.

A Seat at the Table is reserved for the first 25 YPN Members to RSVP.
