Kari Rihm


Rihm Family Cos.




Kari Rihm is a pioneer in the truest sense of word: Her company, doing business as Rihm Kenworth, is the only fully woman-owned Kenworth truck dealership in the U.S., making her one of the most influential women in the trucking industry. Rihm took over after the 2010 death of her husband and has since boosted the workforce by 50 percent. In 2018, the company will move to a brand-new headquarters building in South St. Paul.
