20 Years with Western Chief

We recently celebrated a big achievement here at Western Chief. Wilfredo Godoy, a picking associate in our warehouse, celebrated 20 years with us. We are fortunate to have such a committed employee who has grown with us and has truly become a part of the family. We asked Wil a few questions as he reflected back on this accomplishment.

If you could walk in someone else’s shoes for a day, who would it be?

"I would like to walk in God's shoes so that I could see myself and see what I could do to be a better person."


What advice do you have for someone just starting out their career?

"Get passionate about your career or find a career you have passion for. Passion will make you love your job and get through tough times."


Do you have a favorite Western Chief boot? And why?

"It's hard to choose because all our products here are great. But if I had to pick, the 601 Romeo work boots are one of the best. They are comfy and very durable for work."


With sincere gratitude, thank you Wil! Pictured here from left to right: Mark Moehring, Vice President, Rob Moehring, Chairman, Wil Godoy, Warehouse Associate, Karl Moehring, CEO
