Kauffman-Kirschnick Becomes President of EMR

Electric Motor Repair Company appointed Caroline Kauffman-Kirschnick president of the 90-year-old Baltimore-based foodservice equipment service agency. Kauffman-Kirschnick replaces her father, Roger Kauffman as president.

Roger Kauffman was named president by his father, Harry Kauffman, in 1985.

Kauffman-Kirschnick began her career at EMR working summers from junior high throughout high school. Her full-time, professional career at EMR launched in October 2003 when Kauffman-Kirschnick joined the company’s accounts receivables team before moving into human resources. Five years later, Kauffman-Kirschnick moved to a role in operations, followed by sales. She then transferred to EMR’s Delaware branch, where she served as assistant branch manager before receiving a promotion to operations manager. After three years in Delaware, Kauffman-Kirschnick returned to Baltimore as the operations manager of EMR’s headquarters. Her most recent promotion was in June 2015 to general manager overseeing all branches and service areas.
