Dixie Rhiner

 

Dixie truly gives credence to the name “Mother Hen” of our company. She is always checking in with us all to make sure no one needs anything. Most days, Dixie stops in the office to see if any wives have given birth, or any family members of employees are sick to be sure flowers and condolences have been sent. She is a forever advocate of the underdog, regularly sending new people thru the door looking for a job after meeting Dixie somewhere in our community. We’ve gotten some amazing employees because of her ability to see potential in those she meets. She genuinely cares about each of the employees and annually hosts company dinners to get to know the staff and their spouses/significant others better. Dixie also is great at offering “tough love” when any of us get out of line encouraging us to step up and straighten out. During her free time, she is very active in the community supporting and promoting various causes and charities both personally and on-behalf of Rhiner’s. Dixie assumed Majority Partner after her husband, Bill, passed, and has become an intricate part of daily life at Rhiner’s. Rhiner’s continues the rich history of a family-owned business. Dixie’s daughter Christine works in the office handling various administrative responsibilities and her grandson, Austin, works in the field as a Journeyman Plumber. Dixie truly is a delight to work with, and it’s been great to see how her many contributions are making Rhiner’s better and more family and community-minded.

Beau Marley

 

Beau started working for Rhiner’s in 2000 while attending AIB and later Vatterott College. He began working his way up thru the company absorbing new roles and positions as other employees retired and left the company now doing the job of three former employees and adding a few extra skills of his own. Beau has become the honorary Computer Guru for anything in the office computer-related, and the phrase, “Beau, I need your help” is heard daily in the office. He was nicknamed “Oz” by his fellow staff members for his Wizard abilities in fixing issues. He serves as the company Treasurer/Controller and is a great sounding board for ideas and directions to take the company, always offering a reasonable explanation and justified financial analysis of the situation. Fellow office mates frequently stop in Beau’s office to ask advice, or just to share something personal about a loved one. He is a great listener and genuinely cares about his co-workers and their families. Beau was made a Partner after Bill’s passing, and he continues to keep things at Rhiner’s flowing along smoothly.

Corey DeBrouse

Corey started working at Rhiner’s in 1999 riding to work in the back of his Dad’s truck. His father drove an hour out of his way each morning to pick him up, and Corey continues to commute 90 minutes every day from Lovilla. He started as a Laborer in the field willing to get his hands dirty, and continues that practice to this day. After putting in the required on-the-job hours and studying on his own time he passed the Iowa exam to acquire his Journeyman Plumbing license and has since gone on to get his Master Plumbing license. He has worked his way up thru the company to become the General Manager and go-to plumbing guy in the office for our new staff with questions. He is the type of boss you’d also consider a friend, regularly organizing and participating in events that allow staff to take a break from work and enjoy each other and their families. Corey does a nice job finding balance between being the boss keeping everyone in line and still being fun and easy to approach or talk to. After Bill’s passing, Corey willingly stepped up to the role of Partner and General Manager and has been able to fill that role beautifully.
