David Shaw - Service Writer and Sales Person

Screen Shot 2017 03 27 at 11.39.30 AM Our March Kent Equipment employee spotlight is on David Shaw. David is a Service Writer and Sales Person, and is one of the first friendly faces you see when you visit our store on 10 Mile Road in Sparta. He sits right up front, greeting our customers and helping them with their sales and service needs. David is another of our hometown employees, raised in Kent City, he graduated from Kent City High School, and attended Carthage College in Kenosha, WI. Before coming to work with us at Kent Equipment, his most interesting job was working as an automotive consultant. David likes interacting with our customers on a daily basis, and enjoys the challenge of finding the right tool, machine, or service for each client.

David is married to his lovely wife, Marcia, and they have two children, Bradley and Caroline. Both children are married to great spouses, and have two boys each. When asked about his favorite vacation, David responded, “all vacations are great!” If he could meet anyone, he says there are many, but he would start with Henry Ford. His favorite movie quotes are “here’s looking at you kid” from Casablanca, and “who are those guys?” from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

David also enjoys golf, gardening, and riding his motorcycle. His favorite car of all time is a 1956 Ford Thunderbird.  David enjoys all food, explaining that there is nothing really that he dislikes, and that “variety is the spice of life.” If he had to eat one meal for the rest of his life, he says there are too many to choose from, and he’s “glad that’s not the case.” Finally, when asked what is the first thing he would buy if he won the lottery, he asked, “not sure, how much did I win?”

We are proud to have David as one of the smiling faces at Kent Equipment. Come in today and let him and the rest of our great staff assist you in all your service, sales, parts, and rental needs. Contact David at, or call 616-675-5368.
