Hey, Summer Camp Fans!
Our last Employee Spotlight blog post talked about our Production Supervisor, Shirley who is in charge of our camp trunk manufacturing.
The thought with these Employee Spotlight blog posts is for you to get to know us better here at Everything Summer Camp, learn something about the people who work here, and to get a better understanding of who we are as a company.
For today’s blog post I stopped in Mark’s office and had a chat with him. Mark is the Vice President of Everything Summer Camp—not to mention a very happy guy now that his latest project (our new Web site) has recently launched.
As Vice President of the company, Mark’s job is to oversee many different aspects of the business with a primary focus on Everything Summer Camp’s Web site and Product Development. His job faces him with new challenges every day.
Knowing Mark, he wouldn’t have it any other way. “I like finding solutions that are innovative in helping campers get ready for camp—or help them while they’re at camp,” he says. He loves that his job brings something new to the table every day.
He’s had the same attitude toward his work for all of the nine years that he’s been here, starting out in Purchasing and moving up to Lead Buyer; Mark has held a variety of positions before becoming the Vice President of the company.
His involvement in Product Development constantly yields improvements in our graphics for trunk decorating, iron on labels, nameplates, and other trunk accessories. He’s always got great ideas from his own time spent at summer camp when he was a kid at no-longer-operating Camp Wowitan.
Mark sometimes summarizes his job as creating other jobs in that he’s always looking for more ways that Everything Summer Camp can branch out and grow. But what he loves best about his job is the people he works with. “It’s fun coming into work,” he says.
That’s all for now, Camp Fans. Until next time.
