Keith Benthin
Owner

Meet the president of this family owned business! He is married to Cindy Dykens Benthin and has three daughters. His parents purchased Mulder’s in 1976 from Don Mulder. A lot of people think, or assume, Keith’s last name is Mulder because of the name of the business. However, Bob and Esther continued on with the name after they purchased the business. Keith started working for Mulder’s in 1975, working for Don Mulder. He worked for Mulder’s for 27 years until 2002 when he felt a calling to go into youth ministry. After lots of prayer, Keith felt called to leave his current employment and come back to Mulder’s and continue the company. He wanted to continue Mulder’s not only because it was a family business, but for all the employees that relied on him to provide a job for them. He wanted Kalamazoo to continue having a moving business where their customers receive everything they have been promised. Hard work and honesty is something he requires of all his employees, asking that they always deliver more than expected.

Karel Shadley
Office Manager

Karel brings lots of experience to Mulder’s from working at a variety of different jobs. All of this experience has helped Karel as she now manages Mulder’s Moving and Storage. She left a 16-year job with a national retail company to come work at this family-owned company. “It was an easy decision. My husband and I have been friends with Keith and Cindy and their family for over 30 years. I wanted to be a part of something special. Mulder’s is unlike any other company I have worked for. Everyone works together striving to achieve two goals – to make Mulder’s the top moving company in Kalamazoo and to make an impact on our community. I believe in Mulder’s Mission Statement ‘To be a company of excellence and integrity by taking care of our employees and customers. We will strive to give back to our community and leave it better than we found it.’ I considered it a privilege being asked to join Mulder’s in August of 2013 and to be a part of that mission. I always said that when I became a manager I wanted to treat employees how I wanted to be treated while honoring the company I work for. I use this same philosophy when dealing with customers.”

She accepted a position at Mulder’s Moving and Storage in the spring of 2018, and loves the emphasis on local marketing for this locally owned and operated small business. “It is very rewarding to see success from your marketing efforts for a small business like Mulder’s Moving and Storage. The owners and staff here are so great, and the atmosphere is like a family. It isn’t just about our bottom line like I have experienced in other work environments. Instead, Mulder’s has a focus on treating clients and employees well, and to do good by the community. I am very grateful to be a part of a team that genuinely cares about their reputation, staff, and customers.” You may see Alyssa out on move jobs.

Mike Huver
Operations Manager

Mike started as a helper in March of 1984, and trained with Brian Benthin as an over the road driver and obtained his class A license in 1990. He actually ended his employment with Mulder’s as lead driver in 1997 to join up with a couple of great guys he knew in North Carolina who had just taken over a failing Mayflower agent. In eight years, they turned that failing company into the #1 moving company in the nation. That year, he was awarded the “Van H. Finch Award” for outstanding customer service. He was the lead supervisor at the time and then moved into dispatch for 2 ½ years. Mike returned to Michigan and Mulder’s in 2010. Mike has found it a fulfilling challenge as a mover, salesman and now operations manager to help grow Mulder’s into Kalamazoo’s elite mover. “I feel so blessed working with the outstanding, dedicated people at Mulder’s.”
