Kristi Bottrall is General Manager of the Grand Rapids location of Corrigan Moving Systems, a commercial and residential relocation company. She advanced in this traditionally male-dominated industry through hard work and determination, growing from her position as part-time receptionist starting in high school to General Manager today.
Kristi believes self-growth and independence are the keys to achieving her goals, both personally and professionally. She strives to challenge herself every day by stepping out of her comfort zone and trying new things. As Corrigan Moving Systems’ General Manager, Kristi recognizes the significant role she plays in promoting others to success in the industry. “It’s been a great accomplishment for me,” she says. “I can empower and help increase the skills and confidence of my employees, while making sure to meet the needs of our customers and promote a positive experience in what most consider a stressful life change.”
Corrigan Moving supports several community-based programs, and Kristi is proud to be involved in these endeavors. One of the most rewarding for her is the Girl Scouts of America Leadership program which inspires girls, grades 5-12, to dream big and work hard to develop future leaders of courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place.
Outside of work, Kristi spends time with her blended family, which includes her husband, five daughters, two granddaughters, and a small farm with a menagerie of animals. The motto she lives by is: “You will never know how far you can go unless you try.”
