Kathy Wagner

Regional Manager

Kathy brings 30-plus years of retail management experience to Wildlife Trading Company. Before joining our staff, Kathy had an extensive career with Montgomery Ward. With outstanding people skills and training techniques yielding superior sales in all of her locations, Kathy oversees Wildlife Trading Company’s accounts in the Southwest. She is a “hands-on manager” who sets high goals for herself and her staff, and has mentored many young, enthusiastic retail management trainees who have gone on to successful retail careers in many diverse venues.

Much of Kathy’s success in recruiting and training comes from her firm belief that work needs to be exciting and fun — a philosophy she promotes across all levels in all of her locations. The result is that many of the management associates from our Southwest Region are amongst the most tenured in our company.

A “champion shopper” who keeps an open eye to new retail trends and ideas, Kathy loves traveling, gourmet cooking, sewing and gardening.
