Ask Charlie Powers who he considers the one person in the company who has helped shape and refine his vision for Frederick Fence over the years and he’ll readily admit that Kathy Crum, Frederick Fence’s Office Manager, is the first name that comes to mind. Having been part of Frederick Fence’s leadership team for more than twenty-five years, Kathy manages the human resources, accounting, and administrative functions for the company. However, she’ll proudly tell you that her main duty is to keep the company president and long-time friend on top of his best game so that Frederick Fence continues to evolve and grow.
A Frederick, Maryland native, Kathy served as both a bookkeeper and accountant for several companies before joining the Frederick Fence team. A desire to work closer to home so she could raise her three small children and a small newspaper ad is what brought her to Frederick Fence. Since that time, Kathy has helped Charlie Powers grow the company and now works with the Powers’ siblings to ensure that Charlie’s vision stays intact for years to come.

Outside of spending time with her Frederick Fence family, Kathy enjoys being with her family and friends, playing the piano, decorating her home and working out. An avid music lover, Kathy also enjoys going to concerts, as there’s nothing more inspirational for her than seeing live music.
