Father’s Day Spotlight: Roy and Amanda Kucharczyk

Roy Kucharczyk began his career with McCormick 36 years ago and never dreamt that it would become a family affair. Roy met his wife, Karen, in his early days at the Hunt Valley Plant where he started as a production machine mechanic and worked through several increasing positions to his current role as a Maintenance Manager for our Maryland Distribution centers. In 2015, his daughter Amanda joined him at McCormick when she started her career as a Financial Analyst in Corporate Financial Planning and Analysis.

When he first came to McCormick, Roy was motivated to apply since he grew up in the Maryland area where “McCormick was always seen as a good company with a strong background for security and growth opportunities.” Thirty-three years later, with a newly minted degree in Finance, his daughter Amanda saw the same potential and has even grown into a new role as a Senior Financial Analyst on the Consumer side of the business, supporting Innovation. Amanda credits this growth to McCormick’s company culture. “My favorite part about working for McCormick is the fact that I can see myself continuing to learn and grow with the company for many years to come. I learn something new every day and the growth opportunities feel endless.”

Not only is McCormick the place where Roy and Amanda come to work every day, it’s also been a part of their family memories. For Roy, “growing up you could smell the spices in the neighborhood and the familiar McCormick products that were always in our families’ kitchens. The red and white can of pepper, was in every house that I can remember.” Amanda and Roy now build new memories as they work in their separate divisions – one of Amanda’s favorites being when coworkers ask if she’s Roy Kucharczyk’s daughter and she can proudly reply “yes!”

Both Roy and Amanda plan to continue to grow within the company and enjoy products both in and out of work. As for Father’s Day, Roy said “I think it is great that as the years go by the family cook outs, especially on Father’s Day, continue all the McCormick favorites are included.”

However you choose to celebrate, Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
