Leadership Team

Meet the KW Corporation Leadership Team!

Karl Witt

CEO

I have evolved with the cabling industry over the last 22 years. My first memory of network cabling was in 1998 at VG’s Grocery store in Howell, Michigan. I will never forget the satisfaction of seeing the lights blink, indicating that I had actually fixed the problem. Thousands of data cables, computers, phones and security cameras later, my staff and I are still finding fulfillment in that concept, though it looks much different now. I call myself the Founder, CEO and President of something that has grown beyond anything I had ever expected, but that’s a little misleading without mentioning the extraordinary team members who have risked it all with me. I feel lucky to have a tenured leadership team, who were all rookie professionals with one common goal: make it happen. KW has grown mature enough to serve some of the largest companies in North America but will gladly hop on over to our local grocery store when duty calls. Our approach has not changed with advancements and that is something I take pride in. Outside of KW walls, you will find me volunteering my time and resources to our community, spending time with my wife and two children (Lyndsey, 7, and Hudson, 3) or performing routine maintenance around our property. I accredit my work ethic and love for my community to my parents; to this day I think my dad can out-work me. CEO Fine Print: I am the only male in my family who is balding. I have one sister. I’ve never met a tractor I didn’t want to buy – I haven’t held back very many times. I love my hometown. I have one living grandparent, who is one of my favorite people.

Steven Clare

Director of Operations

Steve has been with KW since the beginning in 2004. Over the years, Steve has worn many hats such as Electrician, Technician, Lead Technician, Project Manager and Lead Estimator. He’s currently the Director of Operations. For the last decade or more, Steve has enjoyed the responsibility of managing the growth, development, and health of the company as well as the wellbeing of everyone at KW. His greatest achievement is assembling, coaching, and managing a group of hardworking and dedicated staff that have a passion for the work at KW. Steve’s goals are to continue to unearth the endless potential of what KW Corporation can achieve and to continue to make KW a place that everyone takes pride in devoting their careers and livelihood to.

Katie Groll

Controller and HR Manager

Katie started working at KW in 2009. She is the Financial Controller and HR manager. Katie did not imagine either of those titles as her career path, but both have turned out to be passions that she finds extremely fulfilling. She graduated from GVSU with a bachelor’s degree in Communications & Advertising and has spent time throughout her career finding ways to educate herself to support her role. Aside from completing courses in finance, she is SHRM-CP certified. KW has changed dramatically in the time she has been with the company, and she feels fortunate to be part of the team who refuses to see KW fail; her co-workers are the hardest working people she knows. When she is not plugged in, Katie enjoys spending time with her husband and two kids, all things sports, house projects, and leading or taking fitness classes at Pure Barre.

Jon McLachlan

Communication Operations Manager

Jon has been with the company since 2009. In that time, he has worn many hats within the organization: technician, lead technician, project manager, and most recently is the Operations Manager of the Communication Division. Jon says he’s personally enjoyed watching the growth of the company, staff, and the clients. KW has always had a “can do” attitude, and Jon feels he echoes that sentiment. Jon plays a key role in the day-to-day success of the company, including leading the project managers and engaging with clients. As someone who thrives off getting the job done right, on time, and on budget, Jon’s main goal is to continue the success of KW Corporation, while advocating for each and every one of the technicians, because without them, none of this would be possible.
