I am a father of two, who enjoys all aspects of life. I am a West Michigan native, currently residing in Walker, Michigan, and am very proud of my Michigan roots and Native American ancestry. I am also a member of The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, as well as a member of the MMSDC. I have been an active member of my community, volunteering for numerous coaching positions in my children’s development, and have loved watching them grow and learn and become outstanding leaders of their respective teams.
In my business profession, I have learned from many different business mentors. My roots were solidly planted early on into the packaging world, and now I look back at 25 years of packaging experience. It is with this experience that I have become well versed in all facets of packaging applications and look for the best, most economical solution to my customers concerns. I am the President/CEO of Eagle Packaging, as well as Eagle-Nichols, which are diverse customized packaging manufacturers, specializing in Class A surface protection, as well as paper based packaging solutions. Eagle Packaging adheres to the standards of quality manufacturing requirements, and are well versed in distribution with an emphasis on Lean Manufacturing. Our core belief is to understand our customers business and offer the best solution to their needs. Whether it is a cost competitive issue, or a scratch resistance requirement, or handling any freight concerns, we will offer the best long term solution. We take a proactive approach to all of our customers needs. By understanding their processes we are able to create the best solution at competitive prices. We pride ourselves with JIT deliveries and quick response time to requests. We service our customers both locally and regionally, meeting their production demands, minimizing their shipping damage and creating unique packaging solutions.
My overall business philosophy is to be the leader in our industry, and live by the never give up, can do attitude. We believe in mentoring young talent and stay active within our community, which reaches beyond just our business lives. We support local high school programs, have initiated a training program for college students and are actively supporting Grand Valley State University with their Senior Project.
