Kahl has driven for 33 years accident free in his career, traveling over 3 million safe miles. Since 2014, Kahl has served as a driver trainer for the company passing along his skills and insight to new PITT OHIO drivers.

Ricky Kahl:

“When I’m not working, I am committed to making my community a better place. In 2013 Kahl became a member of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and the Shriners Society.  “My involvement in these organizations has given me the opportunity to help many children and families in need of medical assistance. I was able to provide free medical transportation to patients of the Shriner’s Hospital and their families in 2018 and 2021.”

With Shriner’s Hospital, Kahl served as Vice Boss of the Clown Unit.  He took on the position of Boss Clown from 2019-2021 and was responsible for setting up fundraisers for Shriner’s Hospital.

Kahl added:

“As a member of the Clown Unit, I am able to bring joy to children in the tri-state area with parades, parties and assisting the circus when they are in town. “My experience as a truck driver has allowed me the flexibility to be an active member of my community. I am fortunate to have a job as a driver with PITT OHIO who believes so strongly in supporting our communities.”

Kahl enjoys helping children in his community. He has spoken during career day at local schools, sharing the importance of truck drivers in their community.  He also assisted in coaching a youth bowling league, where he takes great pride in the influence he can make on the future generation to become vital members of our community.  The bowling league gave Kahl the opportunity to teach kids leadership skills and teamwork.

When asked about Ricky Kahl, PITT OHIO’s Senior Safety Specialist, Kevin Matsey, commented on Kahls’ positive attitude, friendly demeanor and professional work ethic.

“Rick’s genuine, uplifting attitude resonates well with all of his co-workers and customers. He is the type of driver any company would want their employees to emulate.”
