Ken Klicker, Director of Finance at the Grimes Companies

Klicker supervises the finances for multiple divisions at the Grimes Companies, including trucking, warehousing, packaging, freight brokerage and staffing. By utilizing logistics and business acumen, Ken Klicker has created precise reporting that has allowed the company to operate at peak efficiency.

Senior management at the Grimes Companies has applauded Klicker for his outstanding time-management and organization skills, which allow him to accomplish more in small amounts of time.

When Klicker joined the company less than two years ago, he walked in with three goals: implement new financial control, provide analyses of different business lines and create more accurate financial reports for senior management. Klicker also created an expense report system, renewed credit lines and converted the payroll system.

“Prior to me arriving at the company, the Grimes Companies didn’t have a comptroller or CFO,” said Klicker. “I’ve provided financial leadership and guidance for senior staff, and vision and direction for where we need to go.”

Since then, Klicker has been able to exceed all of those goals. Klicker’s work has translated into finding new ways to cut costs and simplify strategies to improve the company’s operations in numerous ways.

Klicker is a long-term Jacksonville resident and has volunteered with the National Multiple Schlerosis Society, North Florida Chapter.
