Milt Steward - Sales Director

Milt has been with us since 1994 when he started as a dispatcher. It wasn’t long until we noticed how much he enjoyed meeting with our customers face-to-face. Our customers enjoyed it too!

“That’s the best part of my job. I love meeting our customers and seeing their operations. I’m very proud of the fact that many of the accounts I originally spoke with are still part of the Keim TS customer family,” Milt says.

Milt studied Transportation Business at De Anza College, in Cupertino, CA, and served as Traffic Manager with Abitibi-Price Corporation Flair Food Plant in Hiawatha, KS before joining the Keim TS team. But Milt’s trucking experience goes back even further. His father was a truck driver and so his love of the trucking industry was instilled at an early age.

He and his wife, Roberta, have been married for 40 years and have a daughter and three sons. Milt would do anything for his family. In fact he has been an organ donor for his eldest son who needed a kidney transplant.

Milt can be reached at 785-467-3112 or through his email at:
