Embracing Change Leads to a Strong Future

When Wendy Youngren was promoted to WH
Holding Chief Operating Officer earlier this year,
Ashley Raisanen was promoted to WHIRC Business Manager taking over leadership of the response center. 

Ashley began her career with WHIRC in 2009 as
an overnight dispatcher. In 2012, she was promoted
to administration and in January of 2013 Ashley
received a promotion to Day Shift Supervisor.

Earlier this year, in January, Ashley began her current
role as WHIRC Business Manager, where she is responsible for the day-to-day operations of WHIRC
  • Provide training and direction to deliver superior monitoring to your customers
  • Work with dealers to ensure open lines of communication and provide first call support
  • Maintain the current fleet of receivers to support your needs
  • Implement new technology to help you be more successful
Ashley attended St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud Minnesota, where she majored in Accounting, but her passion is technology and the need to understand how  systems work from end to end.

That love of technology has been a true asset in the response center and has not gone unnoticed and is essential to supporting you and your customers.

" WHIRC is so fortunate to be able to attract and retain talent with the caliber of Ashley's skills, we are excited to see where she will take the business moving forward" - said Wendy Youngren, COO WH Holding

Ashley and her husband Ryan have a two-year old daughter, Berlynn and are expecting a new addition to the Raisanen family in December.
