Kim Bassett began her career with Bassett Mechanical in 1996 as a sales representative and has served in several positions, including field work, installation and estimating. She has also been involved in project management and business development. In 2007, she became president and chief operations officer, followed by a unanimous vote to become president and CEO in 2009.
