Jon Yorde, Lindenmeyr Munroe
“Being a member of the FACCMN opens a lot of doors. It’s like having a wide open view over the world” answered Jon when we asked him why he decided to join the chamber.
Jon Yorde, who has 30+ years experience in the paper industry, joined the Lindenmeyr Munroe company in 2013. Lindenmeyr Munroe is a stable private business that offers a wide range of solutions in terms of paper and packaging in the U.S., since 1859. Their main clients are commercial printing companies.
Jon truly enjoys working in this company, that allows him to be an outside seller. Indeed, he loves to be out with people, and to always learn more about their needs. “My phone is always on, even at night, in case of emergencies.” said Jon, who explained to us that he is really committed to taking care of his customers and to creating a trust-based relationship with them.
Jon loves the independence of his job, and is particularly proud of the business contact he created on his own through cold calling. Despite his long experience, he is willing to always learn to become a better seller.
By joining the FACCMN, Jon hopes to bring an international and multicultural perspective to the local companies he is working with. “I love traveling in Europe! I’m taking German lessons too (...) it opens my horizons and gives me the opportunity to deal with different cultures”, he told us.
We are really happy to count Jon as one of our valuable members and wish him the best within our community!
