Mike has been with SERVPRO of Olathe/Lenexa for 10 years as an Operations Manager. What he enjoys most about his job is building relationships with his co-workers and watching them reach their full potential. In his free time he likes to be outdoors with his wife and children.
Terri Kesler has worked as SERVPRO’s Office Manager for 4 years, but she takes a different approach to emergency response by using data on customer needs and concerns to create best response practices. If you’re a hiking enthusiast like Terri, you likely know that disasters can strike at any time. While preparedness is key, Terri has learned that it takes a team to overcome a disaster. That is why she utilizes her position as manager to empower a company culture of communication, support, and collective strategy.
She has always found value in making a positive impact on human lives through service. Looking back, it is no surprise that she found her way to SERVPRO as it fulfills her two part desire for service through expertise and empathy. When she is not collaborating with her team, she is volunteering, spending time with family, or exercising at the gym. To Terri, a home is a family’s sanctuary--a place to relax and feel safe. So when she is relaxing on the couch watching a compulsive amount of Netflix, she feels comforted by the knowledge that, should disaster strike, her team will have her back.
Ken Lutgen has spent 8 years with SERVPRO, most recently as our Marketing and Key Accounts Manager. Before making the move to marketing, he was our Large Loss Coordinator for 6 years where he built strong and lasting relationships through his ability to manage large projects and meet customer needs and deadlines.
In doing so, Ken marketed for SERVPRO long before it became his primary function. In both of his roles, he has tried to provide people with the best services in the industry. As our Marketing Manager, he connects people with services, people, and resources that will provide them the best experience. In his spare time, Ken likes to travel and be with his two daughters and wife. He believes his most significant moments occur when he is able to see his children do what they love.

His greatest professional satisfaction is seeing our teams come together through cooperation and teamwork to accomplish the extraordinary feat of restoring flooded, multi-level buildings to their prior state.
