Promotion Alert! Jared Doppenberg

Redwood Plastics’ Langley, BC location is proud to announce the promotion of Jared Doppenberg to Inside Sales Representative. Jared has followed the path of being a fabricator for five years of his career, 2-1/2 of those spent with Redwood. Jared has proven to be more than just a fabricator: he has a passion for his work, for being honest, hardworking, and going above and beyond his duties. He is sensitive to the needs of his coworkers and we’re sure that will translate to outstanding customer service in his new role dealing with our valuable customers!

In his downtime Jared has some interesting hobbies. He enjoys working on his import Toyota (extra powerful engines and right seat drive) or flying his growing collection of drones. His musical choice is Funk but at least “it’s not country”.

“Gannon The Cannon” Joins The Squad

Disclaimer: Gannon himself used that nickname introducing himself to some coworkers earlier!

Redwood Plastics’ marketing department is pleased to announce the hiring of Gannon Andrews as our new Marketing Assistant in a part-time role as he continues to attend University. Gannon will assist the Marketing Department with a wide variety of tasks including market research, quotations, mailing campaigns, LiveChat, assisting with CMS, and working with our eCommerce site. His past work experience include being a shipper/receiver, assisting in purchasing, and inventory management. Gannon grew up locally near the branch and is Langley born and raised. His hobbies are tied to the Fine Arts as he is a classically trained vocal, plays the guitar, and overall is keenly interested in music related activities as his primary hobby.

Welcome!

Last but not least we have Chris Tew. Chris is actually the son of long-time Redwood Plastics Technical Sales Representative Jimmy Tew. Chris is joining our Atlanta branch as part of the Inside Sales team. For Chris it’s all about family – particularly his sons Chris Jr. and Chase. Chris gets the most enjoyment out of his life when he’s with his sons and spending time with them is his favorite thing in the world. However, he also enjoys readying, golf, and eating chicken “just about any way you can cook it.”
