Kim Thrasher Joins LAVATEC

Kim Thrasher is the new Sales and Marketing Coordinator at LAVATEC. Responsible for managing research and assisting the regional sales team with equipment related inquiries and price quotes, she reports directly to company President Mark Thrasher.

Kim Thrasher has accumulated five years of sales and marketing experience working for two marketing agencies in Connecticut and New York. She studied International Business and double minored in Marketing and German before receiving a Bachelor of Science degree from Roger Williams University, then earned her MBA at Suffolk University.

During her time in college, she served internships at LAVATEC and has since been instrumental in the success of the company’s e-commerce platform, NewChapterParts. Thrasher has managed the website for certified, high quality commercial spare parts and consumables for the industrial laundry market since it began operations in early 2022.

“NewChapterParts prepared me for this new opportunity because I learned valuable insights and gained a unique perspective that I can use to my advantage in my new role. The direct interactions with customers and understanding their point of view was crucial in helping me build and maintain strong relationships with them,” she said.

“I have always had a deep-rooted connection to LAVATEC. From my time with summer internships to working at trade shows, the business has been an integral part of my life. I am excited to bring a fresh perspective and range of experience to this new opportunity.”

In her free time, Kim loves trying new restaurants, spending time with friends and traveling. She also loves taking long walks with her fiancée and their goldendoodle, Louie. Kim and Dan are busy planning their wedding for this May.
