"My leadership philosophies are simple: Professionalism, Fairness, and Customer Service! In all the people I have supervised, I’ve asked the following: treat those that you deal with respectfully; and any job or task that you do, do as you would want done for yourself, your family, or your friends," Kaase said in a statement.
