Chuck Kuhn, Founder, President, & CEO, JK Moving Services
Charles Kuhn founded JK Moving Services more than three decades ago. Even then, at the age of 16, Kuhn saw that the moving industry was in need of change. With few regulations or industry standards, the young entrepreneur set out to create a company that was committed to providing superior customer service. His vision for JK included an ongoing investment in technology, facilities, and talent. Having remained true to that vision, JK is now the largest independent moving company in North America.
Over time, Kuhn earned a reputation as a savvy businessman. Under his leadership, the company has been recognized for excellence by multiple organizations, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Better Business Bureau, Ernst & Young, Inc. magazine, SmartCEO, and the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA), to name a few.
In 1997, Kuhn identified a need for full mobility solutions for clients and began CapRelo. Kuhn’s drive to make relocation a low-stress and easy process was pivotal in building CapRelo into one of the premier mobility management companies today. CapRelo has grown into a high-quality solutions provider that can manage seamless performance to and from over 150 countries.
He is also a committed philanthropist. Through donations, in-kind service, and volunteering, Kuhn and JK employees support direct services to people in need. Kuhn recently launched the JK Community Farm, designed to alleviate hunger by growing and donating crops and livestock, leading JK to be named Corporate Citizen of the Year by The Washington Business Journal. Kuhn also bought and placed 87-acres of land into conservation easement for the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy. He was two-time chair of Fight for Children’s Fight Night and also participates on the board for the Wakefield School and AMSA.
JK Moving Services and CapRelo are extraordinarily successful with Kuhn at their helm, motivating employees to live by JK’s core values that all add up to our enterprise brand promise: to treat customers with care and respect.
